HBO is working with four different writers on potential “Game of Thrones” spinoffs, TheWrap has learned.

Max Borenstein and Brian Helgelan are both working solo on their own potential follow-ups to the hit fantasy series, while Jane Goldman and Carly Wray will each team up with author George R. R. Martin on two other projects.

Though the projects are still in the development stage and details are sparse, each is expected to “explore different time periods of George R. R. Martin’s vast and rich universe.”

“There is no set timetable for these projects. We’ll take as much or as little time as the writers need and, as with all our development, we will evaluate what we have when the scripts are in,” a spokesperson for HBO said.

“Game of Thrones” showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff will serve as executive producers on any of the series if they were to move forward, as would Martin.

The news comes as HBO’s most successful series ever heads into its endgame with a¬†shortened seven-episode season on Sunday, July 16, 2017 at 9 p.m.

As the network announced last year, the Season 7 premiere of “Game of Thrones” was pushed back in order to accommodate the show’s new winter setting, which forced the HBO fantasy epic to shoot later in the year.
