George r r Martin

George R.R. Martin has announced that the next Game Of Thrones spin-off TV adaptation is set to hit screens in early 2025.

Filming for the prequel, which is currently titled A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms, began in Belfast last week, however a release date was not confirmed.

The series will be adapted from Martin’s novella The Hedge Knight, which takes place roughly 100 years before the events of Game Of Thrones, and a century after the events of House Of The Dragon.

Martin posted an update on the series’ progress on his Not A Blog on June 2, where he gave a clearer sense of when fans can expect the new series, and shared details about the length of the series.

“Filming started last week in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where much of the original GAME OF THRONES was shot,” Martin shared.

“Based on my novella The Hedge Knight, the new show will debut early next year, in 2025.”

“Only six episodes for this one. A novella is considerably shorter than a novel (particularly one of my novels), so there’s less source material,” he added.

The author also revealed that production is going “very well”, and that he and his wife are going to check out the series’ progress next month.

“I hear that everything is going very well just now,” he shared. “Next month I will get to see for myself.

“Parris and I will be taking a few of our minions over to Belfast in mid July, to visit the set, meet the cast, and take in some jousting,” added Martin.

The news of the next spin-off comes just after the release of season two of House Of The Dragon, an even earlier prequel to the original Game Of Thrones series. The series has also been picked up for season three, it was announced earlier this month.

In a four-star review of the first season of the spin-off, NME wrote: “What is reassuring is that House Of The Dragon feels as though it is walking on solid ground: the bubbling rivalries, the jostling for power, the eruptions of violence; six episodes in, it is all coming together to create a rich stew.”

In other news, HotD star Olivia Cooke revealed that an “animalistic” sex scene she shot was eventually cut from the show.

The post ‘Game Of Thrones’ spin-off to air “early 2025”, promises George R.R. Martin appeared first on NME.
