But HBO president Casey Bloys is defending his decision to delay the Emmy winning dragon drama's return.

The show tells the story of Shailene Woodley's character, a single mother who struggles financially and the trouble she gets into when she moves to a California neighbourhood that is full of wealthy families. Probably. Beyond the brass-tacks concerns of production schedules, Bloys also said that it's important to ensure the looming prospect of spinoffs doesn't lessen Game of Thrones season 8 as a proper ending.

At the time the new developments were announced HBO said they would "explore different time period of the vast and rich universe. These things take time". He continued, "We're not using the final season to launch a new show or anything like that. We want some separation there".

Game of Thrones has reached a status where it can do pretty much anything and its millions of fans will lose their collective minds.

There isn't much known about the potential new series, though it's expected that not all of them will end up on air. "Here's what I'll tell you: They take the time they need to do the show at its highest level of quality".

They aren't actually spin-offs either, rather prequel series which are set before the goings on of Game of Thrones. And even then only a pilot would be produced, with HBO needing to decide whether to pick it up to series.

And speaking of Thrones author Martin, he is involved with all five prequels and their writers.

Five different writers are developing the five ideas are being developed: Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Brian Helgeland (Legend), Carly Wray (Mad Men, The Leftovers) and Bryan Cogman (Thrones co-executive producer). Just like with season eight, we're willing to wait, but we don't like it.
