    There's still talk of their being 5 Prequels, but still no info on what they'll cover unfortunately.

    They really went too fast. The books had material for ten seasons maybe more and that's not even counting winds of winter.

    Please do the Dance of Dragons. They can do like 3 or 4 battles per season for 4-6 seasons I believe. No need to slow burn it.

    Why didnt they just extend the series out longer. Last two or three seasons were rushed. They got too distracted with getting huge moments, no slow build

    I think the showrunners were just literally getting tired if it. It's a mind-boggling amount of work to produce a season.

    But yeah, last season especially was like watching it on fast forward.

    They should do the Dunk and Egg stories. The Hedge Knight was awesome.

    They also said the cast was aging too fast. Can't have Arya running around as a 30 year old and having Hodor carrying Bran like an ant carrying a peanut

    I just want to know one thing...will the guy who sat down and typed "Theon gets kicked in groin...he becomes more powerful than anyone possibly imagined." have anything to do with the prequels?

    I get the feeling the GoT spinoffs aren't going to be anywhere near as innovative or entertaining as the main series, and the GoT popularity will end up being a fad.

    The creators make the product, and not the other way around.

    They want Westworld to fill the gap for now.

    I think prequels aren't the way to go. Book fans surely care more about the history than show fans do. I'd think a spin-off with Arya as a discount/righteous Faceless Man (or some other fairly popular characters like Davos) travelling around Essos would do much better. Westeros is played out IMO.
