Game of Thrones fans have always found the final seasons wanting in terms of writing and story fluidity. For one thing, original source material ran out after Season 5. George R.R. Martin’s series A Song of Ice and Fire has 7 books in its plan. It’s just released only 5 books with the fifth book entitled A Dance With Dragons. In the literary series, the very last time we read about Jon Snow is his death as he was stabbed by fellow soldiers of the Night’s Watch.

However, years after the finale episode, people still talk of Game of Thrones. Undoubtedly, the series is pivotal in elevating the palate of viewers for the small screen. Despite the criticisms, Game of Thrones still set the bar for future epic series endeavors. HBO has secured the rights to producing series within the lore that is from George R. R. Martin’s writing. Indeed, an upcoming series focusing on the House Targaryen and its efforts to maintain its hold onto power is coming up. And, what is more exciting is that George R. R. Martin is very much involved in its development. House of the Dragon is set to premiere on HBO this August.

Given that the Targaryen series is already completed and awaiting release, will George R. R. Martin be as involved with the upcoming Jon Snow sequel series? While fans are still waiting for the final books, there is also the need for the author’s talent in upcoming projects. Still, there are these projects that keep us looking forward to Martin’s continued story.
