By Zach Seemayer
Get ready for more fantastic tales of magic and murder. HBO is currently developing three new Game of Thrones spinoffs to expand upon the popular fictional universe, according to multiplereports.
The network is working on a trio of prequels, set before the events of Game of Thrones, that will tell the stories of characters who played a role in the history of the world, first imagined and detailed in the novels of George R. R. Martin.
Two of the sequel projects, with the working titles Flea Bottom and 10,000 Ships, are currently in early stages of development and there are no writers or showrunners yet attached, Variety reports.
Meanwhile, the third series -- titled 9 Voyages -- is being developed by Rome co-creator Bruno Heller. The series would focus on Lord Corlys Velaryon, known as The Sea Snake, a legendary nautical adventurer in the olden days of Westeros.
