George R.R. Martin thinks changes in HBO Max changes impacted the projects

George R.R. Martin thinks that the changes in HBO Max have impacted the future of the projects.

The American novelist claimed that the streamer has “shelved” some of his planned “Game of Thrones”-themed shows in a blog post. HBO Max’s content slate has been getting smaller since HBO parent firm WarnerMedia merged with Discovery in April in an effort to save expenses, which has resulted in the termination of programs like “Love Life,” “Minx,” and “FBoy Island.”

Since the initial series, which HBO has renewed for Season 2, other projects in development haven’t been as firmly committed, according to Martin. He says, “Some of those are moving faster than others, as is always the case with development. None have been greenlit yet, though we are hoping… maybe soon. A couple have been shelved, but I would not agree that they are dead. You can take something off the shelf as easily as you can put it on the shelf. All the changes at HBO Max have impacted us, certainly.”

There are at least six projects that have been said to be in development. Martin did not identify which projects have been cancelled.

He praised “The Banshees of Inisherin,” calling Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson’s performances “brilliant.” Martin says, “A moving tale that I will never forget, but damn, how tragic. I’ve heard it described as a comedy. Really? That is black humour, though, OK?
