Game Of Thrones’ animated series is set to come soon on your TV screens. The series is in early development stages at HBO Max, Variety has confirmed with sources.
HBO Max has reportedly met with several writers to hear pitches, according to The Hollywood Reporter, but no deals have been finalised. Additionally, there’s no word on what an animated Thrones series would focus on, or even what period of Westeros history it would be set in.
Variety reported last week that a series based on George R.R. Martin’s Tale of Dunk and Egg is in the works at HBO. The series of fantasy novellas follow the adventures of Ser Duncan the Tall (Dunk) and a young Aegon V Targaryen (Egg) 90 years prior to the events of “A Song of Ice and Fire,” which served as the basis for Game of Thrones.

Back in 2017, the platform had been exploring five spin-offs of Game Of Thrones, of which the only one led by Naomi Watts ended up getting a pilot order. It was further cancelled after HBO looked at the pilot. HBO then gave a series order to House of the Dragon, a prequel that tells the story of House Targaryen 300 years prior to the events of Game of Thrones.
It was reported earlier this week that a live-action Harry Potter series s in the early development stages at HBO Max as well. It already has multiple DC Comics shows in the works, including the Peacemaker series starring John Cena as a spinoff of the upcoming James Gunn Suicide Squad film as well as a Green Lantern series from Greg Berlanti. JJ Abrams is also working on a Justice League Dark series at the streamer. A series inspired by The Shining that Abrams and Bad Robot are prepping is also in works, as well as a Dune spinoff show about the Bene Gesserit.
