Writer of the finest ever Game of Thrones scene is developing a fifth spin-off show

If you're missing Game of Thrones, you'll love this news.

There is already four possible Game of Thrones prequels in the mix but new reports are suggesting that there is a fifth follow-up under development by HBO.

According to Entertainment Weekly, "co-executive producer Bryan Cogman is penning a drama series follow-up to the Emmy-winning blockbuster."

Cogman has worked closely with Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin and he has been on board since the first season where he was an assistant to David Benioff and Dan Weiss both of whom have declined to be associated with any of the follow-up shows.

He has been involved in some fantastic pieces of writing on the show one of which is Tyrion's trial by combat scene in season 4’s The Laws of Gods and Men.

As of yet, there are no details available about the plot of the new prequel but as a whole, it is set to explore time periods in the world of Westeros before the events of Thrones and will not involve any members of the current cast.

Also, Martin has revealed that two fan-favourite narratives are not under consideration: Robert's Rebellion and The Tales of Dunk and Egg.

Game of Thrones is expected to come back for its final season in late 2018 or it could even be released in 2019 so it looks like we won't see a spin-off until 2020 at least.
