Game of Thrones – the new spin-off has a plan for 3 seasons. Will the writers’ strike affect production?
HBO officially creates the second series in the world of the hit Game of Thrones. It will be a prequel titled A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight. It is to be based on the stories by George RR Martin, whose heroes are Dunk and Egg.
The series will be adapted from a series of three novellas by George R. R. Martin. Deadline recently caught up with HBO’s head of TV series and movies, Francesca Orsi, to discuss the future of HBO. During the conversation, she revealed that the aforementioned spin-off will run “perfectly year after year and will consist of three seasons”. Its implementation will be much faster, because there are no dragons in the story and it will not require work on so many special effects, but due to the writers’ strike, it is not known when the production will start, and Orsi says that in 2024 HBO may have a problem with the schedule if the strike lasts more than 6-9 months.
A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight – what will the series be about?
The series will take place some 90 years before the events of Game of Thrones. The story focuses on two unusual heroes roaming Westeros. One is a young, naive but brave knight known as Ser Duncan, the other is his henchman called Egg. The story is set in a time when the Targaryens still had the Iron Throne, and the memory of the last dragon has not yet faded. A great destiny, powerful enemies and a dangerous quest await an unusual duo.
Game of Thrones – what about the spin-off about Jon Snow?
A planned continuation of the series Game of Throneswhich will focus on the character of Jon Snow (Kit Harington), is still at a very early stage of development. In the same conversation with Deadline, Orsi revealed that the series is still in the works, but it’s too early to say whether the project will finally be made.
“We’re working extensively with the writers right now to shape it into something that could potentially get the green light, but at this point no, there’s no guarantee it’ll go all the way.” Orsi said.
