Game of Thrones creator George RR Martin has signed a five-year deal with the famous streaming platform HBO. The popular writer started working on five different prequel series for the legendary Game of Thrones series.
George RR Martin has succeeded in bringing the yet incomplete A Song of Ice and Fire book series to a wide audience with the highly acclaimed HBO adaptation. The fifth book of the series, A Dance with Dragons, was published in July 2011, about three months after the first season of Game of Thrones aired. There was a six-year wait between the fourth book and this work. Then Martin fell into silence again. There is still no sequel book available yet.
Now, the famous writer, who has started to develop new projects for HBO Max, gave hints that he will not publish new books for a while. Although fans are excited about the upcoming sequels, they are quite pessimistic about when a new book will be written. Because it is thought that the 72-year-old writer will not have time for this again and therefore the Game of Thrones series will not end.
