The ever-sprawling universe of Game of Thrones recently had two major additions, pushing the boundaries of the known world in the Martinverse. So far we know House of The Dragon is the only prequel in the works so far, and we can expect it to arrive quite early in 2022. However, rumours keep popping up everywhere there are more prequels/spinoffs in talks, and HBO chief Casey Bloys doesn’t deny that.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, HBO Max is working on developing two animated shows inspired by Game of Thrones. That brings the tally of Game of Thrones-based animated shows to three. Back in January, it was known one animated series was already under development. However, there’s still not much known about that series.

However, we do have some news regarding the newer ones. One of them will take place in the Golden Empire of Yi Ti. A region in the continent of Essos that is home to one of the oldest and most advanced societies in author George R.R. Martin’s sprawling fantasy world. Yi Ti is reportedly inspired by Imperial China, just as Westeros was said to have been inspired by Medieval Europe. Yi Ti was briefly referenced on Game of Thrones, though the Sea Snake, a character in HBO’s upcoming prequel series House of the Dragon. 

However, there is some bad news as well. HBO is no longer moving forward with the rumoured live-action TV series ‘Flea Bottom‘. Flea Bottom would have taken place in the poorest district of King’s Landing. It was cancelled in the early stages and never officially confirmed by HBO.

Game of Thrones hired some of the finest talents on the planet who helped make the show great. The music composer for the series, Ramin Djawadi, produced some of the finest tunes for the show. He will be getting back to the Game of Thrones universe with his scores for the prequel, House of The Dragon. Ramin’s work in the series has helped Game of Thrones soundtrack score a billion plays worldwide.

According to a new poll, Game of Thrones is among the top five television series to boast such a soundtrack, notching up total plays of one billion.

The research from telly experts at Freesat analysed over 100 television shows’ soundtracks to discover the world’s favourite, with Netflix original Stranger Things in the first place. The 1980s-set sci-fi soundtrack racked up five billion plays spread out over six soundtrack albums. HBO fantasy epic Game of Thrones came in fourth.

The study looked into the most played soundtracks, average plays per soundtrack, the most loved theme tunes and the most played song from the top soundtracks.

Based on total plays Game of Thrones, came in just behind This Is Us, with 1.3bn plays. One song from Game Of Thrones season six, Light Of The Seven by Ramin Djawadi, picked up one million plays alone.

To make it fair, the research also looked at average plays, taking an average play count across all the tracks.

Game of Thrones Main Title made the top 10, coming in at sixth place with 46.6 million plays. Other theme tunes in the top included Big Little Lies and Band Of Brothers.

More news keeps pouring in for Game of Thrones lovers as the prequel House of The Dragon is fast on track for its release in 2022. The recent developments taking place at various filming sites indicate the show might be here sooner than we expected. With a lot of potential, and a promise to restore HBO to its former glory, the streaming network is leaving no stone unturned to make the series as majestic as it can be. They have already added various new locations, such as the Stone City of Portugal. While back in the UK, recently a huge castle set was noticed by the residents of Watford at the Warner Bros studios. And its colour and architecture hinted it was for the Game of Thrones prequel.

The latest film studio backlot extension can easily be seen by passers-by and motorists on Watford Road and the A41, as reported by the local Watford newspaper Watford Herts London. There is no confirmation as of yet, since HBO hasn’t provided any statement, as it is evident from the fact they like to keep their productions under cover until they are officially released. However, the red colour of the huge set only points towards one similar structure we saw in Game of Thrones, the Red Keep.

Moreover, the newspaper also reported that WB warned residents that filming, which took place for 9 days ending on July 6, would involve SFX such as smoke, controlled fires, and wind machines. This closely resembles dragonfyre, and probably one of the famous dragon vs dragon fights took place here. There are several candidates for this scene. If the above-mentioned shot took place in King’s Landing, it might be a scene from either of the two battles of Tumbleton. It might also be a scene from the Storming of the Dragonpit, but we will have to wait and see.

George R. R. Martin is a name generally associated with the highly popular TV series, Game of Thrones, as its creator. However, he is expanding his working area. His skills now include helping to bring other famous novels to life as well. The writer is now an executive producer for AMC’s upcoming TV show ‘Dark Winds‘. He’s tagging along with Graham Roland and Robert Redford.

AMC network has decided to build a TV series adaptation of Tony Hilerman’s ‘The Dark Wind’ novels for AMC+ and AMC. The show will be led by Westworld alum Zahn McClarnon. (The show Westworld also shares a connection with Game of Thrones!)

The official description of the show narrates: “Based on the iconic Leaphorn & Chee book series by Tony Hillerman, Dark Winds is a psychological thriller that follows two Navajo police officers in the 1970s Southwest. As their search for clues in a grisly double murder case forces them to challenge their own spiritual beliefs and come to terms with the trauma of their pasts.” The first season of the show is expected to have 6 episodes.

Here’s what Martin has to say about the series, “Tony Hillerman was one of the greats, as every mystery reader knows. Down here in the Southwest, Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee are as iconic as Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Philip Marlowe, and Travis McGee. When my friends Robert Redford and Chris Eyre asked me to help bring Leaphorn and Chee back to television, I could not agree fast enough. We have great source material in Tony’s novel ‘Listening Woman,’ a great pilot script from Graham Rowland, a great director in Chris… and what a pair of leads, with Zahn McClarnon as Leaphorn and Kiowa Gordon as Chee! Our plan is to shoot in New Mexico, in and around Santa Fe and on the Navajo reservation, and we are bringing in as many Navajo and other Native Americans as possible, as writers, directors, cast, and crew, to capture all the magic and mystery and wonder of the Land of Enchantment. Thanks to AMC for making it possible. Tony Hillerman wrote a lot of amazing books, and it is our dream to adapt as many of them as we can.”

Dark Winds is scheduled to arrive in 2022 on AMC+ and AMC. The shooting will take place on Navajo Nation land.
