Fans have been disappointed that the highly-acclaimed HBO series, "Game of Thrones," would be ending after two more seasons. However, fans of the show need not worry as another George R.R. Martin creation will be turned into a series.

Just recently, George R.R. Martin himself announced on his live journal that his anthology series, entitled "Wild Cards," is already being developed into a television series. The series will be adapted by Universal Cable Productions (UCP). According to Business Insider, "Wild Cards" is a series of anthologies and mosaic novels.

"Wild Cards" is a superhero anthology series that was set in a common universe, shared by the humans and the heroes. This was initially created by a group of science fiction authors from New Mexico and edited mostly by George R.R. Martin himself.

However, due to Martin's exclusive commitment with HBO, he won't be personally working on the project. Martin's assistant editor Melinda Snodgrass and Gregory Noveck will be the executive producers of the show instead, as reported by International Business Times.

According to Martin, he has his entire faith on the people that will be the executive producers of the show, as they know and love the universe of "Wild Cards" just as much as he does; thus, he is confident they will do a good job at it.

George R.R. Martin still has two more seasons of "Game of Thrones" plus his "Winds of Winter" book currently in progress. He currently has a lot in his hands and producing a new show will just further delays his prior projects and endeavors.

Most of the books of "Wild Cards" are made up of short stories, but focus only on one general and common theme. Some books were also in a format of a mosaic novel, wherein the writers write their own different stories individually and turned into one novel-length story.
