Bryan Cogman Developing Fifth Game of Thrones Prequel

But it turns out there's room for one more in HBO's throne room, as Entertainment Weekly brings word of a fifth prequel series being developed by Bryan Cogman. "A great guy and a fine writer, and aside from me and maybe Elio and Linda, I don't know anyone who knows and loves Westeros as well as he does".

Cogman was also the rare GoT producer to wade into the Twitter tempest to interact with fans, but quit the social network a month ago to focus on the show's final season (and, unbeknownst to fans, this prequel project).

Thrones co-executive producer Bryan Cogman is penning a drama series follow-up to the Emmy-winning blockbuster.

Details for the five projects are being kept under tight guard, though Martin has made clear that each project is a prequel rather than a spinoff and that none of the current main cast of the series will be involved.

Cogman has been part of the show since the first season. As with the other prequels, David Benioff and Dan Weiss will not be involved. If anyone knows how Weiss and Benioff work, it's him. He has since written numerous episodes, including several of the series' most standout: "The Laws of Gods and Men", "Kissed by Fire" and "Stormborn". "It's probably the most fun I've ever had reading anything". He is also the author of the book "Inside HBO's Game of Thrones" which showcases a preface by A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin. While the decision to put Sansa in such a position-one she doesn't have to endure in the books-surely wasn't his alone, Cogman shouldered a lot of the blame in both one-on-one discussions with fans on social media and in an emotional commentary track, which you can hear on the Season 5 DVD/Blu-ray.

Deadline revealed back in May that each of the prequels would "explore different time periods of George RR Martin's vast and rich universe".

If you're one of the millions of fans of Game of Thrones harboring a twinge of despair over the upcoming conclusion of the series, don't fret. HBO programming president Casey Bloys previously said he may only give the green light to one of them.

Game of Thrones Season 8 premieres sometime in 2018 or 2019.
