The creators of Game of Thrones did not want to continue with the project.

David Benioff and Dan Weiss, the creators of “Game of Thrones,” have revealed that they have closed the chapter on their acclaimed series and will not be part of its expansion. Despite being offered by HBO to be producers of all spin-offs, they decided to distance themselves and explore new opportunities. Like their next project with Netflix, the adaptation of the literary saga “The 3 Body Problem“. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, they confessed to not having seen ” The Dragon House “, the first prequel to the series.

Although The Dragon House has been successful, Benioff has not re-watched a single episode of Game of Thrones since the end of the series, while Weiss has reviewed it with his family. Despite receiving proposals for other series, including fantasy, they considered it crucial to leave George R. R. Martin’s universe behind. HBO’s offer to be producers of all spin-offs, regardless of their involvement, was turned down in favor of new projects.

Dragon House has surpassed Game of Thrones in certain respects, but HBO has ambitious plans with projects such as “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight” and the sequel “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight,” centered on Jon Snow. The original creators will no longer be involved in these new Westeros journeys.

The distancing of Benioff and Weiss could have been motivated by criticism, deviations from the original books and the controversy surrounding the ending of Game of Thrones. The unknown now is how the series will evolve without their creative leadership. As well as how the new producers will address fan expectations and the rich narrative of George R. R. Martin’s universe.
