While some fans were disappointed with the news that there won't be a prequel spin-off for the hit HBO TV series Game of Thrones, some still hoped the decision will be negotiated.
Guess what? HBO channel has been in talks with the author of the series, RR Martin, about ideas for a follow-up to the international Emmy-winning hit series, Entertainment Weekly reported.
The network's programming president Casy Bloys confirmed that he's in favour of a well thought-out spin-off. "I would say it’s still kind of preliminary ongoing talks," he said.

"There are areas we are exploring, but I wouldn’t point to any one and say, ‘This is what we’re going to do,'" he added.
When asked if season eight will contain six episodes and if they will be screened in cinema, Bloy gave an ambiguous reply. “I want everything I can get for HBO, I’ll just leave it at that,” he said.
Previously, executive producer David Benioff clearly stated that HBO won’t be making anything else once the final two seasons have aired. However, Martin shared that he will not be quitting the Game of Thrones world any time soon and has shared that fans of the series can still enjoy new material in written form.
