Game of Thrones: One Live-Action Prequel Cancelled, Two More Animated Spin-Offs Ordered | IGN

The tides of power shift once again as HBO Max reportedly orders two more animated Game of Thrones spinoffs, while cancelling a live-action spinoff.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO Max is now developing three animated Game of Thrones spinoffs for the streaming service. At least one of those projects will be set in The Golden Empire of Yi Ti.

While never explicitly shown in Game of Thrones, Yi Ti is said to be one of the oldest and most advanced societies in George R.R. Martin’s fantasy world and is inspired by Imperial China. Plot details on the other two animated series haven’t been revealed.

But while HBO Max goes in on animated spinoffs, the live-action series Flea Bottom, which was set in the fictional slum of King’s Landing, is no longer in development. The spinoff idea was in the very early stages of development when it was revealed to the public, but it seems the series didn’t have enough to keep the network interested.

HBO has been working on ways to maximize the Game of Thrones universe following the critically mixed series finale of the original series. The first major spinoff coming is House of the Dragon which will focus on the Targaryan house during their reign and the eventual civil war that breaks out amongst them.

Other spinoffs reportedly in the works include 10,000 Ships which focuses on the warrior queen Nymeria who ends up founding the Kingdom of Dorne and House Martell and 9 Voyages about Velaryon who will appear in House of the Dragon.

On the animated side of things, HBO Max is beefing up their department there as well. A new animated Batman and Superman series are both heading to the series on the heels of the next season of Harley Quinn.
