“We developed a lot of ideas, we were still developing a lot of ideas, and I think we’re really excited about the one that will air later this summer. But, we don’t feel the need to make another one unless it feels really creatively exciting to us. That’s my job, at least. And the team that I’m on, that’s what we’re told to focus on.”

The spin-off Buckley is referencing is The House of The Dragon which is a prequel series exploring the Targaryan family lineage roughly 200 years before “Game of Thrones.”

Star Matt Smith in an interview with Comicbook shared how House of the Dragon would be different from what came before on HBO.

“I think it’s really different to the original series, to be honest with you,” Smith stated. “I mean it has to be. The original series was its own thing and it was, it was so brilliant and, and sort of left a mark in a way that it would be impossible to repeat. So, I don’t know. The truth is I haven’t seen any so it’s difficult for me. Essentially it’s in the same world, it has to take on a slightly different identity. But who knows? I have no idea.”
