The first spin-off, which has the working title 9 Voyages, is being developed by Rome creator Bruno Heller and follows Lord Corlys Velaryon, a.k.a. The Sea Snake, the Lord of the Tides and head of House Velaryon.

The second project, 10,000 Ships, focuses around the warrior queen Princess Nymeria, a revered ancestor of House Martell who founded the kingdom of Dorne.

The final prequel series will be set in the notorious King’s Landing slum of Flea Bottom – the maze of tight streets in the city where characters like Davos Seaworth and Gendry Baratheon were born.

The trio of series are in addition to the forthcoming House of the Dragon, which is set to star Paddy Considine, Matt Smith and Olivia Cooke. That story takes place 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones, and follows the Targaryen family.

It is set to start production next month and will land on HBO in 2022.
