TwitterFacebook

You might feel like it’s too soon to think about the Game of Thrones spinoffs HBO has in the pipeline, but consider this counterpoint: It’s not. 

Screenwriter Jane Goldman, who will pen at least one of the prequels planned for after Thrones concludes in 2018, spoke to IGN about what her series would include — and she kept it deliberately, maddeningly vague.
