The HBO release timetable for George RR Martin’s Winds of Winter has been pushed back, causing concern among fans.
WINDS OF WINTER was supposed to be released in the summer of 2020, however due to industry news regarding author George RR Martin, the release date for the sixth book could be pushed back again.
Winds of Winter, the sixth book in the Song of Ice and Fire series, has become one of the most eagerly awaited book releases of all time. When the coronavirus epidemic struck last year, author Martin provided an update to his fans, stating that he was hard at work on the book once more – but the book’s publishing date appears to be in jeopardy at the moment. Another Game of Thrones TV series is coming to screens in the near future, but with a twist, it was announced earlier this month.
HBO Max is now in the “very early creative stages” of an animated Game of Thrones series, according to Variety.
There are several tales in the ASOIAF universe that could be investigated, but there is yet no indication of what they will entail.
This news comes on the heels of HBO’s announcement that a new series based on Martin’s novella series, Tales of Dunk and Egg, will be produced.
The novella series is set about 100 years before the events of the Game of Thrones TV program, and recounts the exploits of Sir Duncan the Tall (Dunk) and a very young Aegon V Targaryen (Egg).
Martin has handled a significant number of adaptations of his work in the past, so there’s a good chance he’ll be involved in the two next series as well.
He has repeatedly informed his fans on his Not A Blog website that he is working on House of the Dragon, the next Westeros series, which is set to premiere in 2022.
However, this raises the question of whether he will be as involved in the two recently announced TV ventures.
Last year, Martin published a new blog post in which he mentioned the release date for Winds of Winter.
Martin wrote on his blog that he hoped the covid-19 pandemic will be over by 2021, as well as the drafting of Winds of Winter.
However, if the author is also working on three TV shows at the same time, his timetable would be disrupted. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
