The Game Of Thrones Spinoff Even More Exciting Than House Of The Dragon
House of the Dragon is the most anticipated Game of Thrones spinoff. But there’s another spinoff: 10,000 Ships. Game of Thrones ended in May 2019 after eight seasons. It received high ratings and 12 Primetime Emmy Awards. The show’s Game of Thrones story holes and inconsistent storytelling have hampered its final two seasons. However, HBO hopes to fix that problem with their spinoff shows. The Olivia Cooke-led House of the Dragon is the first spinoff to production and release. It will be a show about the Targaryen civil conflict.
10,000 Ships is another intriguing Game of Thrones side project in development. The series will be about Princess Nymeria, who ruled over Dorne for two decades. The story of Princess Nymeria is set around a thousand years before the events of “A Song of Ice and Fire,” which makes 10,000 Ships the oldest project on the Westeros timeline. Nymeria’s legend is that she crossed into the Summer Sea channel and was forced to destroy her entire fleet to escape the dragonlords at Essos.
It looks like the 10,000 Shipsspinoff will be one of HBO’s most interesting prospects. The Targaryen family dynamic has been well explored by Game of Thrones. However, Nymeria is a completely new character for viewers to enjoy. Her story is compelling and sets up the show for many wars, chases, and intrigue. The setting of Dorne is now more accessible since it was not explored to its full potential in the original series. 10,000 Ships may attract more attention than House of the Dragon.
Game of Thrones only mentioned Nymeria once, when Arya Stark named her direwolf in honor of the warrior-queen. Nymeria’s legacy was so significant that she is still regarded as a stronghold of strength in Westeros, even after her conquests. The show will begin with Nymeria leading all Rhoynar refugees from Essos to Dorne as the Valyrian expansion occurs. She burns all 10,000 of their ships once they arrive to stop them from turning back. Together with her husband Davos, she would become the first ruler to unify the region. This storyline will face major challenges. House of the Dragon has done well with budget management.
Ten thousand ships will feature Dorne, Nymeria’s claim to the desert region. The storyline that introduced Dorne to the audience was the worst in Season 4 of Game of Thrones. The main reason was the lack of development in Dorne’s characters, except for Prince Oberyn Martell. The show and books created a fascinating world that needs to be explored further, but 10,000 Ships finally has the chance to tell Dorne’s story.
10,000 Ships made a significant step forward in May 2021 when Amanda Segel was named the writer. It’s easy for people to get lost in the sea of spinoffs offered for Game of Thrones. Nymeria in 10,000 Ships may be the best Game of Thrones spinoff if done right. It even beat House of the Dragon.
