Game of Thrones is one of HBO’s most successful franchises, and they’re constantly looking for new ways to expand it. The Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin recently shared an exciting update with the fans and revealed there are three animated spin-offs in development.

Martin wrapped up 2023 by sharing a post on his blog, where she dropped several hints about his future Game of Thrones projects on HBO. He revealed that the spin-off Nine Voyages, which centers on Corlys Velaryon’s journey aboard the Sea Snake ship, has been moved from live-action to animation.

“Budgetary constraints would likely have made a live-action version prohibitively expensive, what with half the show taking place at sea, and the necessity of creating a different port every week, from Driftmark to Lys to the Basilisk Isles to Volantis to Qarth to… well, on and on and on,” wrote Martin.

He concluded the note by revealing there are three animated projects on the way but added none of them have been greenlit yet. Martin didn’t specify which projects he’s referring to, but he teased spin-offs Flea Bottom and 10,000 Ships back in 2021.

Following its conclusion in 2019, Game of Thrones produced a spin-off House of the Dragon, set to return for its second season later this year.
