With Game of Thrones heading into its last season in 2018, fans can rejoice that another universe created by George R.R. Martin may be heading to TV screens as soon as next year.

Martin announced on his Livejournal blog that Wild Cards, a long-running science-fiction anthology co-edited by the author, will be made for TV under a deal with Universal Cable Productions.

“Development will begin immediately on what we hope will be the first of several interlocking series,” he wrote. “I cross my fingers that the Wild Cards will be coming to your home screens in the next year or two.”

First published 30 years ago, Wild Cards begins in an alternate history of a post-apocalyptic WWII when an alien virus spreads across earth and causes a series of crippling defects and superpower mutations. The series spans more than 20 volumes and is written by a collection of 30 authors.

Martin describes Wild Cards on his website as a realm “as large and exciting as the comic book universes of Marvel and DC, though somewhat grittier, and considerably more realistic and more consistent. There are thousands of stories to be told in the world of the Wild Cards.”

Part of NBCUniversal, one of America’s largest television networks, UCP has been behind several critically acclaimed television series, including Mr. Robot, Suits, Battlestar Galactica and Monk.

While Martin won’t be working on the series himself, given he is busy finishing off writing the long-delayed novel The Winds of Winter and his exclusive ties with HBO, co-creator Melinda Snodgrass will join as executive producer.

The series’ storyline is still in the works, but there’s one character Martin has guaranteed will feature: “You’ll be seeing Croyd Crenson, no matter shape the eventual show or shows ends up taking. It wouldn’t be Wild Cards without the Sleeper,” he said.
