Martin does not say which one has been shelved. George R.R. Martin and Kingsman screenwriter Jane Goldman are producing the still untitled show from Goldman's script, which will be a prequel story set thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones.

'Everything I am told indicates that we could film at least one more pilot, and maybe more than one, in the years to come.

George RR Martin has confirmed that one of the Game of Thrones spin-offs has been scrapped.

However, they didn't stop there, in fact there was up to five different spin-offs in the works with HBO.

Martin isn't wrong. So far, Goldman's series is the only certainty thanks to an official pilot order.

"I will try to keep you all informed as work progresses on the new show (whatever we end up calling it). though, given the amount of stuff I am trying to juggle right now, news will probably break on a dozen other places before I get around to it, as happened here".

"Yes, this is a prequel, not a sequel. But that does not mean the others are dead".

Martin, the mastermind behind the captivating Game of Thrones books, has previously said that three out of four prequels would be 'set in different periods and featuring different characters and storylines, remain in active development'. In January, HBO programming president Casey Bloys said the other prequels were "all on different schedules...but I'm very encouraged by what we've seen". This one really puts the PRE in prequel, since it is set not ninety years before Game of Thrones (like Dunk & Egg), or a few hundred years, but rather ten thousand years (well, assuming the oral histories of the First Men are accurate, but there are maesters at the Citadel who insist it has only been half that long). He admitted that it's very early in the process since they don't have a director, a cast, a location, or even a title. "We do have an entire world and tens of thousands of years of history to play with, after all".

It was only a matter of time, but HBO has officially green-lit the first of several planned spin-offs to their hit fantasy series, Game of Thrones.

Going on to say: "I have definitely been involved... but really, the accolades here should go to Jane. She has been an absolute thrill to work with... and my god, what a talent", wrote Martin.

Game of Thrones will end after its eighth season, due out in 2019, and HBO has been actively planning another show to fill the void.

Now in a new blog post, author George RR Martin has revealed that the extended universe is being capped - slightly.
