Recently HBO has been talking about their plans for more Game of Thrones spin-offs. But, one manager addressed that the ideas for these shows have to be more creative along with a good plot to make it to production.

Even though one thing is very clear that the new leadership wants more of the popular franchises and seems mainly focused on cutting off budgets wherever sufficient. However, that cutting is not happening anywhere near Game of Thrones.

According to reports, the executive argued it still all comes down to whether or not the content is important. They can’t just release the series name on a particular thing that won’t connect with the audience. This is what she said:

“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,” Buckley revealed. “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.”

Matt Smith also talked about how House of the Dragon would be different from what we saw on HBO.

“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.”

They also dropped the official synopsis for HBO’s House of the Dragon series, which is mentioned down below:

“The prequel series finds the Targaryen dynasty at the absolute apex of its power, with more than 15 dragons under their yoke. Most empires real and imagined-crumble from such heights. In the case of the Targaryens, their slow fall begins almost 193 years before the events of Game of Thrones, when King Viserys Targaryen breaks with a century of tradition by naming his daughter Rhaenyra heir to the Iron Throne. But when Viserys later fathers a son, the court is shocked when Rhaenyra retains her status as his heir, and seeds of division sow friction across the realm.”
