When HBO announced that they had canceled their untitled Game of Thrones prequel starring Naomi Watts, it was revealed that other spinoffs were still in the works and that one had already been given the greenlight.
Now it has been revealed at a press event at Warner Bros. Studios that the project is titled House of the Dragon, another Game of Thrones prequel, and that it will be available on the upcoming HBO Max streaming service, which launches in 2020. More on the report below.
A few weeks back “A Song of Ice and Fire” author George R.R. Martinshared his thoughts on how Game of Thrones ended and more. In sharing those thoughts, he briefly mentioned consulting on a new video game out of Japan which led to whispers that it might be a game from Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice developer FromSoftware.
At E3 2019, this was confirmed. An announcement trailer was released for Elden Ring, a new game from Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki and Martin developed by FromSoftware and Bandai Namco Entertainment.

HBO’s Game of Thrones has now come and gone, and while most of the series was universally praised, the final season was a bit polarizing.
Now author George R.R. Martin, who wrote the “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series the show was based on, has shared his thoughts on the show ending. He also touched on whether or not the long-awaited next book in the series, The Winds of Winter, and the book after that, A Dream of Spring, would ultimately lead to the same ending as HBO’s adaptation. You can see what he had to say below.
It’s been nearly two years now since Game of Thrones last left us after the season seven finale “The Dragon and the Wolf,” so to say that fans are excited for its return this Sunday would be a massive understatement. At the same time, the return is bittersweet. The upcoming season eight is also the show’s grand finale, and fans know that in six short weeks it will all be over and they’ll likely be spending the summer bursting into tears at random moments. When they’re at the bank. When they’re trying to pick out the best avocado at the market. When the damn clown is making a balloon poodle at their kid’s birthday party. It’s going to be a mess, and very confusing for those who don’t watch the series.
While most of us don’t want it to end, we all understand that a show can run too long and damage the overall product. Better to tell the story with as little filler episodes added in to stretch the series out as possible. But there is one particularly interesting person who doesn’t think the show should be ending just yet, someone who’s pretty familiar with it: George R.R. Martin.
As we saw in the official trailer for Game of Thrones season eight, some scary shit is about to go down at Winterfell.
Now HBO has released a new teaser video titled “Aftermath” two weeks before the final season of the series arrives—a little under two weeks in fact. The video appears to show Winterfell after said scary shit has come and gone. And let’s just say…you should not go into this one expecting sunshine and rainbows.
You can check out the video, as well as a pair of promos HBO has also released titled “Together” and “Survival,” below.
