(Newser) – Fans of Game of Thrones may be able to breathe a sigh of relief. HBO—which will air the final season of the hit series next year—says it has enlisted four writers to produce scripts for possible GOT spinoffs, reports Variety. The writers have been given as much time as they need to produce the scripts, which will "explore different time periods of George RR Martin's vast and rich universe," an HBO rep says.

They'll find plenty of inspiration on Twitter, per Mashable: Using the hashtag #GameOfThronesSpinOffs, users have been throwing around ideas for titles, including "How Your Mother's Brother Met Your Mother," and "The Walking Ned." Also: "Big Littlefinger Lies." (Read more Game of Thrones stories.)
