Do you find the Game of Thrones series the best on TV? Here is information for those who are waiting for season 9 or the release date of the spin-off in 2020.
Game of Thrones is considered one of the most ambitious, expensive and high-quality projects among modern series. All eight seasons have already appeared on the screens, which have received high marks from the audience and film critics. For 2019, the premiere of season 8 was held, which became final and completed the greatest series in the history of cinema.
Many viewers expected Season 8 to be followed by Season 9 of the Game of Thrones, but the creators of the project made a different decision.
George R.R. Martin, like the creators of the series, has repeatedly stated that he does not want to specifically stretch the series for several more seasons, but on May 5, 2017, information appeared on the network about a possible prequel to the Game of Thrones. These data were published by representatives of the HBO channel, who plan to release immediately 4 spin-offs. Initially, there were 5 unique scenarios for 5 different projects, but one according to George R.R. Martin had to be postponed and for how long is still unknown.
What will be of interest to the spin-offs to the Game of Thrones?
The creator of the cycle A Song of Ice and Fire in an interview noted that he has ideas for 5 new series about the universe of the Game of Thrones, which can be released on large screens in the coming years. At the moment, it is known that the channel plans to create the first series, the script of which was written by George R.R. Martin and the incomparable Jane Goldman. She is known to the viewer for such works as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Kingsman.
The possible storyline for spin-off Games of Thrones (or Season 9, if you so wish):
The actions of the new part will affect the events that took place 1000 years before the series Game of Thrones. There will be absolutely no familiar characters, as the series tells the story of the emergence of the Seven Kingdoms from the “golden time” to the “darkest times” when the great houses entered into a fierce confrontation for survival.
A significant part of the screen time will be devoted to the Starks house, since there is a theory regarding the belonging of representatives of the ancient family to the white walkers. Fans of the series have repeatedly suggested that the King of the Night is someone from the Stark house, which is why Bran can watch him in his visions.
Spectators will be able to learn about the longest winter, which brought white walkers to the kingdom. Then most of the inhabitants of the Seven Kingdoms died, and the ancestors of the main characters of the Game of Thrones were saved only thanks to Brandon the Builder, who erected a Wall on the border. The bloody war lasted more than one year, which can also be shown in the spin-off. Most likely we will see the history of the Night’s Watch and the appearance of the Night King.
In addition to Brandon Stark, the founder of the Starks house, Lann the Clever, who is considered the first Lannister and founder of the house, will appear in the new series. Perhaps it will be told about the formation of other ancient surnames, but it is not known exactly who will be in the center of events.
Interesting facts about the spin-off:
* There is no official name for the new series (or season 9) on the theme of Game of Thrones, however one of the working names still leaked to the network – Empire of Ash.
* Initially, the creators of the project and the author of the novel cycle, George R.R. Martin agreed that season 8 of the Game of Thrones should be the final. However, the project’s hyperpopularity made adjustments and it was decided to shoot not season 9, but spin-off.
* Before starting work, the writer had to personally meet and discuss his ideas with 4 screenwriters, who chose the channel. As a result, two of them refused to cooperate, and Carly Ray and Jane Goldman decided to work on a new interesting scenario.
So when will season 9 or the spin-off of Game of Thrones coming out?
As mentioned earlier, it is not necessary to wait for the season 9 of the Game of Thrones, since 8 was the final one. However, the creators of the project and the HBO channel plan to release 4 spin-offs, the first of which will be released very soon. At the moment, it is known that the start date of the spin-off of the Game of Thrones is set for 2020. We follow the news and will publish the latest information in this post!
