HBO developing four different spinoffs of 'Game of Thrones'

Meanwhile, at last summer's Television Critics Association, HBO's programming president Casey Bloys suggested an offshoot series was a real possibility, but no concrete plans had been put in place.

The writers for these spinoffs are Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla vs. Kong), Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Brian Helgeland (Legend), and Carly Wray (Mad Men and The Leftovers). GoT showrunners David Benioff & D.B. Weiss won't be writing any of the potential spinoffs, although they will remain as executive producers on whichever projects are ultimately picked up to series.

There may only be thirteen hours left before Game of Thrones comes to an end but it nearly definitely won't be the last we see of Westeros. Martin, however, will not be writing any of them.

None have written for Game of Thrones yet, although Martin is helping with Goldman and Wray's projects, but each writer has the credentials to make it happen.

Winter may be coming to Westeros, but there's a new Game of Thrones spin-off coming to HBO, and if the preview is to be believed, it looks pretty sweet.

Noah Syndergaard leaves Mets' start with arm injury
Conforto's two-run homer in the fifth gave the Mets a 3-1 lead and his sixth home run of the season made it 4-2 in the eighth. Jeurys Familia, who was bailed out in the ninth inning on Friday by Josh Edgin , threw a 1-2-3 ninth for his first save.

This is news worth celebrating for fans of the series, and we are thrilled that we won't have to say goodbye to Westeros come next summer.

Before you get excited and get the idea in your head that HBO will develop a whopping four spinoffs, that is (probably) not the case.

The seventh and penultimate Game Of Thrones series will be shown in the United Kingdom on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV at 2am on 17 July before being repeated at 9pm. The show will then conclude the following year with Season 8, which Weiss and Benioff have stated will contain six to eight episodes.

Cable giant HBO said that Game of Thrones creator George RR Martin and four other writers are developing the series, with each project focusing on a different era in Martin's "vast and rich universe".

Game of Thrones is not a show which does anything by halves.
