If you're having symptoms of withdrawal from Westeros and are worried about the impact of the Writer's Strike delaying your favourite dragon-laden stories, there is positive news on that front.

'Game of Thrones' writer George R.R. Martin gave fans an update via his newsletter over the weekend, revealing how Season 2 of 'House of the Dragon' would thankfully not be delayed by the strike.

"All of the scripts had been finished months before the WGA strike began," he confirmed. "No writing has been done since, to the best of my knowledge."

He added: "It is shot mostly in London (and a little bit in Wales, Spain, and various other locations), which is why filming has continued. The actors are members of the British union, Equity, not SAG-AFTRA, and though Equity strongly supports their American cousins (they have a big rally planned to show that support), British law forbids them from staging a sympathy strike. If they walk, they have no protection against being fired for breach of contract, or even sued."

Martin also revealed that work was well underway on the planned stage show 'The Iron Throne'. The play, which was announced in 2021 and was originally set to debut on Broadway, is set during the Great Tourney at Harrenhall and has a script penned by Martin, who says it is "coming along well."

"Maybe we will even be able to bring the show to the West End by… well, no, better not say," he said, "do not want to jinx the project."

As for the long-awaited sixth novel in the 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series, 'The Winds of Winter'? Martin said that he had been working on it "almost every day" and "making steady progress. Not as fast as I would like… certainly not as fast as YOU would like… but progress nonetheless. It keeps me out of trouble."
