George RR Martin will be working at HBO for the next five years. The writer of the Game of Thrones-books will develop various projects for the channel, reports Variety.
As previously known, there are already five productions in the making that just like Game of Thrones are based on Martin’s book series A Song of Ice and Fire. In addition, the American writer will also make TV series Who Fears Death, after the book of the same name by Nnedi Okorafor, en Roadmarks, based on Roger Zelazny’s book of the same title.
Martin and HBO also worked together before Game of Thrones (2011-2019). The writer was deeply involved in the series based on his books.
Martin hasn’t released any books in the A Song of Ice and Fireseries. He recently announced that he has made great progress with the sixth part in 2020. However, he did not want to reveal a release date. He expressed the hope that he would be able to write a lot again in 2021. It is not clear whether his work at HBO will further slow down the writing process.
