George R.R. Martin is continuing his partnership with HBO in a huge way.
According to Deadline, A Song of Ice and Fire scribe George R.R. Martin has officially inked a five-year overall deal with HBO.
As part of the new deal, the author is set to create and develop exclusive content both for HBO and the premium cable network’s streaming platform, HBO Max.
The move finds Martin continuing his partnership with the network. The author previously inked an overall deal with HBO back in 2013, and has been working with the channel ever since.
Martin’s new overall deal also comes hot on the heels of quite a bit of news surrounding a slew of Game of Thrones spinoffs already in the works over at HBO and HBO Max.
Most recently, it was announced just a couple of weeks ago, that HBO has given the green light to three separate Game of Thrones prequel series.
First up, 9 Voyages is set to center on the Sea Snake, Lord Corlys Velaryon. Next, Fleabottom will shine a spotlight on the poorest of all of the Kings’ Landing districts. Finally, 10,000 Ships will focus on Princess Nymeria, who journeyed to Dorn with the Rhoynar before going on to marry Lord Mors Martell.
The start of 2021 brought word that the premium cable network would also be developing an adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s Tales of Dunk & Egg— a series of novellas that is set about a hundred years before the events of A Song of Ice and Fire, which served as the basis for HBO’s Game of Thrones.
Additionally, it was also announced back in January that a Game of Thrones animated series was in the works over at HBO Max.
All of the aforementioned GOT projects are in various stages of development, and join fellow prequel series, House of the Dragon. George R.R. Martin is credited as a co-creator and executive producer on the show, which is set to be based off of the author’s Fire & Blood, a history telling of the saga of House Targaryen.
