Animated ‘Game of Thrones’ series in the works at HBO Max?
The hit Game of Thrones fantasy franchise could be expanded into animation in a new series for streaming service HBO Max, The Hollywood Reporter said Wednesday.
Managers of HBO Max, which is owned by AT&T Inc.’s WarnerMedia, have begun holding meetings with writers about a possible animated drama series for an adult audience, the publication said.
A HBO spokesman did not comment on the report.
Game of Thrones, based on novels by George R. Martin, has become a worldwide phenomenon, winning 12 Emmy Awards, including the top prize of Best Drama Series.
The program ended his career on HBO in 2019. Managers have been working on developing new programs in the franchise while competing with Walt Disney Co., Netflix Inc. and others vying for viewers.
HBO is currently working on a spin-off series called House of the Dragon, which will take place 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones. The series is expected to start next year.
