Game of Thrones author, George RR Martin has revealed that he has 8 new shows he’s currently developing as he declared that GOT final episode which aired “Last night was an ending, but it was also a beginning.”
George RR Martin also pointed out that showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are moving on to write and direct a Star Wars movie while “you’ll be seeing a lot of them [the cast] in years to come, in all manner of television shows and movies”.
Having saved himself for last, George added:
“I’m still here, and I’m still busy.”
“As a producer, I’ve got five shows in development at HBO (some having nothing whatsoever to do with the world of Westeros), two at Hulu, one on the History Channel,” he writes.
“I’m involved with a number of feature projects, some based upon my own stories and books, some on material created by others.
“There are these short films I am hoping to make, adaptations of classic stories by one of the most brilliant, quirky, and original writers our genre has ever produced.
“I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan.”
“Still busy” feels like an understatement, to be honest.
The finale ended in a divisive manner, to say the least, even though George is still working on the final two Game Of Thrones books as well.
Addressing this, he concluded :
“Winter is coming, I told you, long ago… and so it is. THE WINDS OF WINTER is very late, I know, I know, but it will be done.
“I won’t say when, I’ve tried that before, only to burn you all and jinx myself… but I will finish it, and then will come A DREAM OF SPRING.”
Explaining why it’s taking so long, George explained:
“I expect these last two books of mine will fill 3000 manuscript pages between them before I’m done… and if more pages and chapters and scenes are needed, I’ll add them.”
