We bring peace and calm to all who are already missing the “Game of Thrones”. Soon several series are going to be released that will help to at least dull the pain of parting with John and Daenerys, if not to forget them. Read about the seven expected brand new series in the fantasy genre.
1. “White Wolf”, 2019
Netflix promises to release the long-awaited “White Wolf” series in 2019. It is based on a series of books by writer Andrzej Sapkowski and tells the story of Geralt — a hunter of evil spirits. Henry Cavill will play the main role in the series. Gamers are waiting for the premiere with special excitement: games based on books about Geralt have been published since 2007 and sold in millions of copies.
2. “The Lord of the Rings”, 2020
Amazon company has taken up another adaptation of books by John R. R. Tolkien. The plot of the future the series (most likely, it will not be released until 2021) will not repeat the Peter Jackson films. The action will unfold a few thousand years before the events shown in the trilogy. So far, little is known about the project. Amazon promises a minimum of five seasons.
3. “The Dark Tower”, 2020
The series based on Stephen King’s book “The Sorcerer” from the “The Dark Tower” series will not be connected with the 2017 feature film. The story of Roland Deschain is in the center of the plot. It reveals the terrible secrets of his youth. Stephen King and Glen Mazzara worked on the script. Sam Strike and Jerome Flynn are among the most recognizable actors of the project. Shooting has already started, the first season is promised to be shown next year.
4. “The Chronicles of Narnia”
Three films based on the books of Clive Lewis about the magical land of Narnia were released from 2005 to 2010. Disney and Walden Media dealt with the film adaptation. They managed to do a fairly successful project. This time the story of a fairy-tale world hiding in a wardrobe is recreated by Netflix. The producers of the channel plan to release a series and a full-length film. How far the company will go in the film adaptations of Narnia is unknown, but the stock of books is large (the cycle includes seven stories).
5. “His Dark Materials”, 2019
Girl Lyra lives in a world where science and magic coexist, and every resident has a Damon — an animal that is the embodiment of the soul. The series is based on the eponymous series of books by writer Philip Pullman, and Director Tom Hooper is responsible for the film adaptation. In 2011, his film “the King says!” received four Oscars, so we can expect that the level of the series will not disappoint.
6. “Conan the Barbarian”
Conan is another literary character, who was successfully brought to the screen. Perhaps the most popular film about the invincible warrior was the 1982 movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger, although there was also a series and a relatively recent remake with Jason Momoa.
Amazon will deal with the new film adaptation of the works of Robert Howard. Director Miguel Sapochnik, the one who filmed the epic battle episodes “Battle of the bastards” and “Long night” in “Game of thrones” will work on it.
7. “The Long Night”
The HBO channel has planned several prequels and spin-offs of the “Game of Thrones”. The first seems to be the “Long Night”. The series will show the events that took place 5,000 years before the mess with the Iron Throne. Now they’re getting ready to shoot he pilot episode. It is known that one of the main roles will be played by Naomi Watts.
