The series was adapted for television by screenwriters David Benioff and Daniel Brett Weiss, who jokingly described it as "''Series/TheSopranos'' [[JustForFun/XMeetsY meets]] [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Middle-earth]]". Each season's arc was meant to line up with its corresponding book. However, this ultimately only worked for the first two seasons, as ''Literature/AStormOfSwords'' ([[DoorStopper which in pagecount equals]] ''[[DoorStopper the entirety]]'' [[DoorStopper of the]] ''Lord of the Rings'' trilogy) was eventually split into two seasons, with ''Literature/AFeastForCrows'' bleeding into both Seasons 4 and 5. Martin himself wrote an episode in each of the show's first four seasons. Starting with the sixth season, the show has [[OvertookTheSeries overtaken the books]], as Martin has yet to publish the sixth novel, ''The Winds Of Winter''. Benioff & Weiss were informed by Martin of the basic plotline of how the saga ends when writing the remaining seasons.

Several prequel TV show projects are being considered by HBO: five were initially pitched, though one was later shelved. In June 2018 it was announced that they had made a pilot episode order for one, ''The Long Night'', produced by Jane Goldman. Then in July 2018, a major leak revealed another of the five prequel pitches, this time about the Doom of Valyria, produced by Max Borenstein and titled ''Empire of Ash''. Based on Martin's own comments about ''Fire & Blood'', the other two prequel ideas are probably the Targaryen Conquest and the Dance of the Dragons. Nonetheless, ''Long Night'' is the only prequel HBO seems to be focusing on now - to the point that Martin keeps publicly contradicting their marketing department, that ''The Long Night'' isn't the only prequel being considered.
