Remember the Game of Thrones prequel, which George RR Martin had us all squealing about? Yeah, that’s not happening. Executive Producer of the show, David Benioff has confirmed that Game of Thrones won't be getting a prequel series, after all.
The news comes after the HBO hit sweeped the Emmys with a whopping 12 wins. With only two seasons left for the hit TV series, fans have been curious about the possibility of a spin-off set in the past. But Benioff, has confirmed that they won't make anything else once the final two seasons have aired, reports femalfirst.co.uk.
The producer was questioned about a prequel possibility, after GOT's Emmy victory, and he said, "You might want to ask George (RR Martin) about that. It's a great world that George created. I think it's a very rich world, and I'm sure there will be other series set in Westeros, but for us, this is it. That's really a question for George.”
Interestingly, Martin isn’t keen on quitting the Game of Thrones universe any time soon, and has shared that fans of the series can still enjoy new material in written form.
"Well, I do have thousands of pages of fake history, everything that led up to Game of Thrones, so there's a wealth of material there, and I'm still writing more. At the moment, we still have this show to finish, and I still have two books to finish, so that's all speculation," Martin has said.
Game of Thrones season 7 will premiere in the summer of 2017.
