But the game isn't over for its creator, George R.R. Martin, who is in the thick of planning for potential new series on the network.

The author condemned calling the related shows spinoffs, claiming none would feature any of the current characters.

Martin also admitted that it is "very unlikely" that there will be five separate shows put out on the small screen, ever though they are good ideas.

The author clarifies these stories will certainly not feature characters now featured on the show: "We are not talking Joey or AfterMASH or even Frazier or Lou Grant..." "So all of you who were hoping for the further adventures of Hot Pie are doomed to disappointment".

He added that each of the concepts under development is a prequel, not a sequel, and may not even be set on the mythical continent of Westeros. Martin even states that "some may not even be set on Westeros". On Dunk & Egg, he writes: "I don't want to repeat what happened with Game of Thrones itself, where the show gets ahead of the books". Martin was confirmed to be working with Goldman and Wray on their respective scripts, but he has now revealed he is working with all the writers in some capacity.

The 68-year-old novelist - whose epic fantasy novels, "A Song of Ice and Fire", are the basis of the HBO series - has revealed there are now several scripts based on the popular HBO fantasy series in the making. "We weren't drinking margaritas and eating chile rellenos and visiting Meow Wolf. I think it'll be great, but I think it's better for them to get new blood in with new visions". We all know how slow I am, and how fast a television show can move. It is a world, and a pretty big one, and if there were eight million stories in the naked city back in the 50s, just think how many more there are in an entire world, and one with thousands of years of recorded history.

The author explained that once all the "A Song of Ice and Fire" books are out, there would be no important detail left unsaid about Robert's rebellion. "That's not a story I want to tell just now; it would feel too much like a twice-told tale".

The fantasy writer was recently announced to have struck a deal with officials at US network HBO to "explore different time periods" in the "vast and rich universe" created in his book series A Song of Ice and Fire in four related shows.
