If HBO has their way, you'll be spending the coming years up to your eyeballs in Game of Thrones content.

Boasting the most popular television show in the world brings with it some unique problems, as HBO continues to discover with Game of Thrones. Entertainment Weekly reports that "GoT" co-executive producer Bryan Cogman is working on prequel to the series with author George R.R. Martin. Although details on all of the developing spin-offs remain under wraps, Martin has confirmed that all of the potential successor shows will be prequels and will not involve current members of the main cast.

Cogman will be swearing an oath of prequels only, no spinoffs, next to Kong: Skull Island's Max Borenstein, Jane Goldman of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Carly Wray of Mad Men and The Leftovers, and Legend's Brian Helgeland.

For more on the secrets behind this scene (and more) you can subscribe to HBO Now. It's inspired storytelling, that's all there is to it, and the characters are so rich, the themes are so varied. Martin, however, is involved with three of them.

Game of Thrones' seventh season was overloaded with jaw-dropping moments, but the one that earned that reaction without anyone dying or Kit Harington's caboose was the incredible training session between Brienne of Tarth and Arya Stark.

Even as the series' main story prepares to draw to a close, it's a surprisingly exciting time to be a fan of Game of Thrones-unless you're a book reader who's yet to invest in a big TV and a nice cable package. The eighth and final season is expected to air in late 2018 or 2019.

Season 7 of Game of Thrones ended with the Wall getting a brand new gate (if, by "brand-new gate" you mean "gaping hole", which we do), presaging a much darker turn than the already-fairly-dark penultimate season.

We were joined by the very handsome Hudson Taylor, Scoops absolutely nailed their Magic Cover, Kymann Power and Dara Dynamite went for a dip Olympic-style, while Justine Stafford shows that the only thing to The Fear itself.
