In a new interview with IGN, George R.R. Martin discusses the potential new shows he’s pitching as part of his development deal with HBO, and reveals that a Dunk & Egg series is still a possibility. Martin confirms he is only pitching these shows, and does not plan on writing them, because his priority is completing his A Song of Ice and Fire series.
When asked about the possibility of HBO adapting the Dunk & Egg tales, Martin expresses his enthusiasm for the characters and confirms that a show based on their adventures has been discussed. He also mentions he has ideas for nine or ten more D&E stories and adds, “Maybe that will be what we’ll do. We’ll see.”
Ours is the Fury: The Dunk & Egg novellas are perfect for an adaptation, fitting into the existing Game of Thrones universe while offering a less complicated plot and a somewhat lighter tone. That George already has so many ideas that could be used for the series is very promising.
