James Hibberd has another scoop, reporting that HBO Max has ended development of the previously reported series focused on Flea Bottom. But it also is developing two new animated projects to join a previusly announced animated show, and one of them is based on Yi Ti, an ancient and high civilization far to the east of the Seven Kingdoms that is inspired by Chinese history and culture. The World of Ice and Fire is the source of much of what we know of Yi Ti, including its people and their descent from the Great Empire of the Dawn who may have had a role in the Long Night.
Artist’s conception of the imperial capital, Yin.
According to Hibberd, HBO Max has not confirmed either series. Hibberd’s sources indicate that the dead Flea Bottom series was the most nascent of the previously revealed projects and only ever in very early development.
