HBO’s CEO is excited by what he has seen so far of the Game of Thrones prequels.
With the hit fantasy show soon coming to an end – the final season is currently in production – all attention will soon turn to the myriad prequel series that are being developed.
Not all will make it to our screens but so far at least HBO’s Chairman and CEO Richard Plepler is pretty excited by what he’s seen, saying the show’s have an “embracement of riches” – reported by Variety.
“It’s a fantastic group of writers and talent, most of whom have lived inside the Thrones eco-system so are very, very familiar with its intricacies. I think we will find with this embarrassment of [writing] riches an exciting property for us to moves forward with… We are looking some things, I have read a couple of early bibles and I’m excited about what I’ve seen.”
Game of Thrones is of course a huge deal for HBO and the ability to continue its success and popularity after the main series’ departure will be a huge priority for them. And fans certainly won’t want to see the acclaimed show’s name tainted by any successor series.
