Game of Thrones Season 9- Will there be a Continuation to GOT?
First aired in 2011, the series finally reached its conclusion in 2019. Over the span of eight years, Game of Thrones aired 8 seasons on the HBO channel. Based on the novel by George R.R. Martin, the series received recognition and critical acclamation around the globe. However, as the series concluded before the release of the final novel, fans are hoping to release the ninth season of Game of Thrones. Since there is no announcement from HBO, people are left guessing whether the day will ever come. So, in this post, we will discuss whether there are chances for Game of Thrones Season 9 or not.
Plot Summary of Game of Thrones:
The show is about a medieval country where noble families are at constant war to gain control of a throne. Whoever gets the throne will be the ruler of the seven kingdoms in the continent Westeros. The story is basically divided into three major sections. The first is about the battles between the nobles of Westeros who fight for the Iron Throne. The second section covers the rise of the princess of the fallen royal family, Daenerys Targaryen. The Targaryens were the rightful rulers of the Iron Throne for centuries.
The third and the last section includes the story of the Night’s Watch, a group of bastards and convicts exiled from their homes. The Night’s Watch is an armed unit that is responsible for guarding the 300-mile-long and 70-foot-tall wall. The wall is supposed to protect Westeros’s people from an ancient mythical creature that no one believes is real.
With the end of the eighth season, fans are hanging on to a tiny hope that maybe the series will continue from where it left off. So, should we keep waiting for the ninth season of GOT? Well, the answer is no. The series has already ended, and there is little to no chance for the creators to pick up this series again.
The series’ ending was a disappointment for the fans as they were hoping for a better conclusion. However, fans can still wait for the novel series to end and read the author’s original story. George R.R. Martin already declared that the novel would have a completely different ending from the series. Even though the idea of waiting for the final novel and then reading it doesn’t sound appealing, but at least we get something, right?
Game of Thrones Prequel- House of the Dragon:
Now that we know that season nine of GOT won’t be happening ever let’s discuss the spin-off prequel of the series. HBO announced the series “House of the Dragon” in October 2019 as soon as the last season of Game of Thrones ended. After over a year of delays and confusion, HBO finally confirmed that the series’s principal photography would begin in a few months. The series will likely release in 2022, though it’s just an estimation.
Story of House of the Dragon:
Game of Thrones fans might remember Viserys Targaryen, Daenerys’ brother mentioning a brief history of the ancient Targaryen House in the first season. He said that a few centuries ago when dragons freely roamed around the earth, people had to fight them to survive. In the middle of all that chaos, the Targaryen House were the bravest and strongest of all, not because they defeated the dragons, but because they rode them.
The story of the series is about 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones. The time when the continent was involved in even more violent and brutal battles. The series will show how the Targaryen House became the mightiest House in all of Westeros.
