While the main series will soon end with the eighth season, HBO has already scheduled a prequel to and spin-off to a franchise so well-loved: speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, however, the president of programming, HBO's Casey Bloys said that will not be produced no spin-off before the series prequel to be launched permanently.

“We are planning a date in the summer for the pilot and we are quite excited,” the words of Bloys. SJ Clarkson is responsible for the direction, everything is proceeding We are excited of this project and we will not work to others until it will be finally launched. We only make it real to the best, make the pilot and then we will consider other ideas.”

Bloys continues by reinforcing the concept: “it's a great franchise, and we will do the pilot, and we'll see how it goes. We will develop other projects? It is likely, but I don't want HBO to send in the wave, only the de series, The Throne of Swords. It was obviously a series beautiful for us, but we are trying to organize an offer is much more diversified and extensive, so that the success of HBO is not tied to the franchise of The Throne of Swords. This is not the case and no one ever thought of this, but on the other hand, I think that would have been insane not to explore even more the wonderful universe created by George R. R. Martin going to make a prequel. But we want to be careful and not overdo it, I and my employees, we have been working for years on what to propose once you've finished the main series of Game of Thrones; will be replaced by a series of different products, not just one. I don't know if it is possible to launch something that has the most media hype of " The Throne of Swords, but who knows, never say never...what counts for us is to have lots of series that are much appreciated by our audience, in the last year we have had Westworld, Succession, Sharp Objects, True Detective, My Brilliant Friend. We also have Watchmen, Euphoria, the second season of Big Little Lies...honestly, I think they are the future, compared to a show that not only defines our brand.”

None of the spin-off, therefore, at least until the debut of the series prequel, as we know, counts among the protagonists of the academy award nominee Naomi Watts: interviewed by Variety during the Sundance Film Festival, the actress has let slip some comment. “Do you think that will I talk about? Are you trying to catch me off guard? It's a fantastic new world, very exciting with many interesting elements, but I don't want to go in difficult ways, and I'll say no more”.

His character is described as “a woman of the charismatic aristocrat who hides dark secrets”, to understand how the Watts will go on to interpret a woman member of one of the most important families. The details, however, remain insufficient to determine the actual role of the actress, she was nominated for a BAFTA, the Screen Actors Guild Award and academy Award for best actress for her performance in the drama 21 grams.

The cast includes Josh Whitehouse in the shoes of one of the male protagonists of the spin-off .The actor has starred in Northern Soul and The Happy Worker and is currently involved with the series BBC Poldark.

This is the first synopsis of the spin-off:

The series will tell the happened thousands of years before the events of the original series and the series will tell the story of the descent of the world from the golden age of Heroes to its darkest hour. And only one thing is certain: the horrific secrets of the history of Westeros to the mysteries of the East, to the Stark... is not the story we think we know...

The filming is expected to begin shortly, with the series will be written by Jane Goldman (Kingsman, X-Men).

These above are the words of George R. R. Martin on the situation of the various spin-off from the world he created and brought to television by HBO:

“Yes, this is a prequel, not a sequel. None of the characters or actors of the current series will appear in the new show. All of the projects in the program that we have developed are the prequel, as I have already said. This, however, is a sort of pre-prequel, since it is not set ninety years before GAME OF THRONES (as The Knight of the Seven Kingdoms) or a few hundred years, but rather ten thousand years (well, assuming that the oral histories of the First Men to be precise, we are masters of the Citadel who keep saying how it is duration half). We are at the beginning of the production, obviously, with the orders of the pilot you just made, therefore we do not have a director, a cast, a location, or even a title. (My vote would be for The Long Night, that says it all, but it wouldn't surprise me if the fine really there. I think that HBO wants to turn around a title in Game of Thrones, more or less).

As for the other spin-off... if you are up to date with the news, you know that we started with four projects and in the end we arrived at five. One of these was set aside, as I understand it, in addition to the pilot of Jane, who is headed toward the shooting. But this does not mean that the others are dead. The other three prequels to Game of Thrones, set in different eras and with characters and storylines different, remains largely in the development phase. Everything that I was told makes me say that we may soon be filming at least one other pilot, and maybe more than one, in the years to come. After all, we have an entire world and tens of thousands of years of history can tell and deepen. But with the world of television, you know, nothing is certain.”

The eighth and final season de of thrones airs on HBO April 14 and the day after on Sky Atlantic, the latter has spread right along with HBO, the first official images from the series, where we see the protagonists Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), Cersei (Lena Headey), Jaimie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Sansa (Sophie Turner), Arya (Maisie Williams), Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright), and all the other main characters.

The finale of the beloved series therefore seems to be promising not only great battles, but also a thick plot of love relationships.
