HBO gives George RR Martin an eight-figure deal to keep A Song of Ice and Fire on ice


George RR Martin, the author of the A song of ice and fire book series that turned into HBO’s big hit Game of Thrones, has signed a massive new deal with HBO to create content for the network and HBO Max, according to The Hollywood ReporterIt’s a five-year deal worth “mid-eight digits,” sources said THR.

although Game of Thrones ended in 2019, HBO owner WarnerMedia has already announced a prequel series, House of the Dragon based on Martin’s 2019 book Fire and blood. And there are five projects under development based on the Game of Thrones universe, THR reports. Martin also develops series for HBO based on the novels Who fears death and Road markings.

My biggest fear, however, is that this huge new deal will make Martin fail to make the sixth book in the A song of ice and fire book series, The wind of winter The author said in February of which he wrote “hundreds and hundreds of pages” The wind of winter in 2020, the “best year” he has had in the book. With fingers crossed, he keeps that momentum going. The previous title in the seven-book series, A dance with dragons, was released in July 2011.
