Wild Card TV SHOW: will it be as successful as Game of Thrones?

If you are a huge fan of Games of Thrones and R.R. Martin, you are in luck! The author just announced that his book series Wild Cards will hit the screen. Will this TV show be as successful as Games of Thrones? The author says it is a safe bet for success. We don’t have a definitive timeline for the release. Maybe in the upcoming two years but things  change quickly in the television landscape. I have a hunch that the premiere will be tied to the last episode of  Games of Thrones. HBO confirmed that there are 2 seasons left for this popular show.

This book series is pretty popular. The 23rd volume of Wild Cards will be hitting the shelves this summer (Save the date). The first was one released in 1986! The story takes place in a different timeline in 1946. The virus, called:  Wild Card hit the planet. It is a lethal one as it killed 90% of the population and transformed the others into Jokers or Aces with extraordinary abilities. There are many characters in the series but according to Martin, some key figures will hit the screen. “You will 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 did not say exactly which stories will make it to the screen.“Hard to say,” he said.

He shared his excitement about this TV adaptation. However, he won’t be working on it. Melinda Snodgrass and Gregory Noveck will be the producers of the show.

  1. new to me but I am always welcome to checking out what is hot out there simply by flipping the scene

  2. Oh I will have to check this book series out. I am still trying to get through Games of Thrones – book 3 – I stall and pick up other books and then go back.

  3. I unfortunately haven’t heard or read this one, but I don’t think it will be as big as game of thrones. I’m pretty sure everyone knows what GOT is. lol My husband and I will probably watch it though since it sounds interesting.

  4. We have been looking for a series to watch. This sounds like a great one. Though, I wonder how I never heard of this book series before! Did kids distract me that much?

  5. I’ve never read the books but it does sound interesting. I like how George RR Martin writes his novels and it’s great that they’re giving him a chance to showcase that through a TV series!

  6. Ooh, he’s a great writer and I didn’t know about the Wild Card anthologies. I can’t wait to hear more about the show.

  7. Though I don’t watch Game of Thrones, I might have to check out this new series. It kind of reminds of The Walking Dead, expect instead of zombies there Jokers and Aces. It does sound intriguing.

  8. I have not seen Game of Thrones and have only heard a tiny bit about Wild Card….I will have to look into both of these!

  9. I am not sure about this because I haven’t seen Games of Throne but sounds like an interesting show.

  10. I think it would be a success too but not sure if it is comparable with Game of Thrones.

  11. Though I have heard a lot about Games of Thrones, honestly I have not watched it before. The new show sounds interesting and may be I would give it a try to see how it goes!

  12. That’s great that he had the summer release. Sound like Wild Cards is going to be good.

  13. I am a big GoT fan and I guess, it’s pretty hard to match up the plot and intensity of GoT.

  14. I’m always looking for a new tv show to watch so I can’t wait for Wild Cards to come out so I can check it out. I’ll have to order the books now so I can learn more about the series.

  15. They are reducing 3 episodes of upcoming GOT season as they don’t have money and this RR wants another series to be filmed. They need to concentrate on GOT first, which is going to become awful as RR martin is skeptical about the ending. His book “Winds of winter” is not released yet, and “A dream of Spring” is merely a concept.
