Reboots and revivals aren’t the only things keeping shows alive these days as spinoffs just keep on coming from some of TV’s most popular shows. Over the years, networks have seen some spinoffs become just as successful as the series they came from, while others have shockingly failed despite a solid fanbase around the character being followed. Just recently there has been a resurgence of spinoffs and there are many more on the way, even some you might now know about. Here are some of the most anticipated spinoffs coming to TV ranked:
12. Game of Thrones
Passionate Game of Thrones fans are still coming to terms with the fact that the eighth season will be the last, but there is hope on the horizon! Before the final season has even aired, at least one Game of Thrones spinoff, with potential for others, has already been announced. It has been confirmed that at least five ideas for a spinoff were presented, but HBO has ordered a pilot for a prequel set about 10,000 years before the events of A Song of Fire and Ice began. The plot will “chronicle the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour,” according to an initial pitch of the spinoff with the network adding, “From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.” HBO has not confirmed when production will start, but the network has confirmed another Game of Thrones series will not air until at least a year after the finale which means at earliest the spinoff will air in 2020. While anticipation is high for this spinoff, it is still quite some time away and nothing is set in stone just yet.
