George R. R. Martin has always been a busy man, and his schedule tightened a lot after the release of the Game of Thrones TV show, so much so that the series continued further than what he had written. Now that the show is over, he is still writing Winds of Winter, while also working on Game of Thrones spinoff shows, one of them being the Jon Snow sequel with Kit Harington. He recently updated the fans on the progress of these spinoffs.

Martin wrote on his blog, Not A Blog:

Various rumors are floating around about my involvement, or lack of same. I am involved [with Snow], just as I am with THE HEDGE KNIGHT and THE SEA SNAKE and TEN THOUSAND SHIPS, and all the animated shows. Kit’s team have visited me here in Santa Fe and worked with me and my own team of brilliant, talented writer/ consultants to hammer out the show.

All four of these successor shows are still in the script stage. Outlines and treatments have been written and approved, scripts have been written, notes have been given, second and third drafts have been written. So far, that’s all. This is the way television works. Please note: nothing has been green lit yet, and there is no guarantee when or if it will be… on any of these shows. The likelihood of all four series getting on the air… well, I’d love it, but that’s not the way it works, usually.

There are all sorts of reasons pilots never get picked up to series, all sorts of reasons scripts never got shot as pilots, all sorts of reasons great treatments never get sent to script. That’s the way the business works. I learned that a long time ago, during my first go-round in television. BLACK CLUSTER. STARPORT. THE SURVIVORS. DOORWAYS. FADEOUT. Those were just a few of my stillborn children from those years. I mourn them still. This is a new day, though, so… here is hoping one or two or three or all four of the GOT spinoffs make it to air.”

Which of these spinoffs do you think will finally get to air on TV? Tell us in the comments below!
