I hope that the fans look at the series and find something new and interesting even in this other world that we will propose, I don't think will be disappointed, it's been putting on a great team.
This is the synopsis that is currently widespread of the first spin-off that will be launched, currently known as The Long Night:
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.

The character of Watts, is described as “a woman of the charismatic aristocrat who hides dark secrets”, making a guess as the Watts will go on to interpret a woman member of one of the most important families.

In regard to the development of other projects, spoke some time ago George R. R. Martin: “Were scheduled for the HBO five projects related to the world of Game of Thrones, I don't like, however, to call them spin-off; three of them are progressing well with the production” the words of the author on his blog, “What I am not I suppose you call it The Long Night to start shooting towards the end of the year, while the other two are concluding the stage of the screenplay. What will be their storyline? I can not say, but my advice to the fans to take in hand a copy of Blood and Fire, and begin to develop theories”. One of the spin-off, the one entrusted to Bryan Cogman (co-executive producer of Game of Thrones), however, it was shelved.
All of the projects in the franchise will be, however, disconnected from the main series: “there will be continuity with the work done by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, is their magnificent world, and I do not want to transport their characters to another, is one of the reasons why I'm not trying to produce the same kind of show” the previous words of the president of programming for HBO, “George has created a world that is vast, with lots of universes inside it, and we want to explore something different. At the moment, these are the reasons why it is not a good idea to do a sequel or spin-off direct.
