Although most fans were not happy about the move, recent predictions made by the Al revealed that Martin's original version of the story was somewhat similar to the course of events shown by the producers of "Game of Thrones" season 6.

Its been six years since the last book in the Song Of Ice and Fire series dropped, and finally George RR Martin has given us all the news we've been waiting for.

We get the feeling the fifth show is about this guy.


Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have already stated that they won't be involved in the prequels, making Cogman the next-best option.

What we also know is that Martin has said that Robert's Rebellion won't be the focus of any prequels and characters such as Ser Duncan the Tall and Aegon the Unlikely, or Dunk and Egg will not be either. The other four scripts will be penned by Kong: Skull Island's Max Borenstein, Oscar-winning L.A. Confidential writer Brian Helgeland, Kingsman: The Secret Service's Jane Goldman and veteran Mad Men writer Carly Wray.

Bryan Cogman, writer and executive producer of the Emmy Award-winning fantasy series, is working on a fifth prequel show being developed by HBO, Entertainment Weekly reports. Cogman is writing the series, working closely with author George R.R. Martin. He wrote: "Bryan Cogman should need no introduction for any Game of Thrones fan". A fifth Game of Thrones prequel is officially in the works at HBO, as confirmed by Variety. Who the hell knows.


Martin has already stated previously that none of the spinoff - or successor shows as he likes to call them - will be set past the end of "Game of Thrones" but rather as prequels from prior history in Westeros.

"How many pilots will be filmed, and how many series might come out of that, remains to be seen", the writer said. More than likely they are only going to choose one of these projects, and we figure that the field will probably be narrowed down over time as the network figures out which stories they are the most interested in telling. "Some may not even be set on Westeros".
