Bryan Cogman - who has been part of the "Game of Thrones" staff since before the show was even on the air - has been working on a prequel series for HBO alongside Martin, who gushed about the project on his blog on Wednesday. And today, on top of the already-planned four spinoff series, Entertainment Weekly confirmed a fifth is in the works.

It's already been reported that Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Brian Helgeland (Legend) and Carly Wray (Mad Men, The Leftovers) are involved in the other four series. Some of his episodes include "Kissed by Fire" in Season 3 and "Stormborn" in Season 7. Ever. As HBO has officially announced that it is working on a fifth "prequel" series.

"Rather than "spinoff" or 'prequel, ' however, I prefer the term 'successor show.' That's what I've been calling them".

Martin revealed that apart from what the writers are developing, he also has ideas of his own, which he described as "four weird-ass series concepts".

The prequel news should come as no surprise to "Game of Thrones" fans.

Tampa police told the newspaper they are investigating the case, but have no reason to doubt Zoller's version of events. Shane, who has two other children, told the Times that Yanelly was a helpful child who "just wanted some damn candy".

HBO president Casey Bloys has indicated that he only intends to greenlight one of the five scripts to go to series, so Game of Thrones fans had better pick their preferences now.

While Martin has been quiet all this time on the progress of the sixth book, new reports claim that a fan named Zack Thoutt has recently used a recurrent neural network to guess what would be in store for fans in the novel series.

Also: All the prequel projects are set before the events in Game of Thrones and do not involve any members of the current cast (the term "spinoff" is frequently used to describe these projects though it's not technically correct).

When Martin initially spoke about a fifth writer being recruited back in May, he said that he did not know anyone who loved Westeros, the fictional world in which GOT is set, as much as himself and "Thrones" experts Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson.

"I immediately fell in love with the book from page one, as most people do", Cogman said in a 2011 interview with The Westeros.org. While that does not give us much to work with it does create some hype around the upcoming Game of Thrones spin-off.
