Three new spin-offs for HBO's fantasy epic Game of Thrones are currently in the works.
The new episodes will form part of a trio of prequel series, Variety reports.
One of the spin-offs is said to be called 9 Voyages or Sea Snake, and it will be written by Bruno Heller.
The other two, which are said to be titled Flea Bottom and 10,000 Ships haven't been reported to have a writer working on them yet.
Fire will reign.

9 Voyages would be based on Lord Corlys Velaryon, husband to Rhaenys Targaryen on the Sea Snake vessel.
While Flea Bottom would centre around the poorest part of King's Landing and 10,000 Ships would look at the story of Princess Nymeria.
There's no current date for production or release on the trio, with it currently being in the very early stages.
But, if that's not enough to quench your GOT thirst, don't worry, 2021 is your year.
A tweet from the official Game of Thrones account said: "Dragons are coming. #HouseoftheDragon begins production in 2021."

Based on George R.R. Martin's 2018 book Fire and Blood, the eagerly-anticipated project will be set 300 years before the events in Game of Thrones took place.
Over the course of 10 episodes, it will tell the story of the House of Targaryen - the house that produced Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen, of course.
The show will primarily be filmed in England.
A first look for the show was shared in December by Warner Media CEO Jason Kilar - as part of a blog post explaining a decision taken by Warner Bros. to debut all of its 2021 films on HBO Max at the same time they open in cinemas.
Kilar said: "Principal photography starts on the next 'Game of Thrones' series, 'House of the Dragon,' in a few months.
"Look out for dragons overhead!"
According to The Wrap, an HBO spokesperson said the programme will be shot at Leavesden Studios in Watford, north of London.
HBO said in a statement: "Paddy Considine (HBO's The Third Day and The Outsider) will be playing King Viserys Targaryen. Viserys was chosen by the lords of Westeros to succeed the Old King, Jaehaerys Targaryen, at the Great Council at Harrenhal.
"A warm, kind, and decent man, Viserys only wishes to carry forward his grandfather's legacy, but as we've learned from Game of Thrones, good men do not necessarily make for great kings."
