  • Game of Thrones prequel

Author George R.R. Martin had previously hinted via his blog that one of the prequel series would be based on the companion book.

Surprising no one, HBO is developing yet another series set in the Game of Thrones universe. According to Deadline, this is a new take on a world originally tackled by Bryan Cogman, who confirmed earlier this year that his prequel was not moving forward.

Looks like HBO isn't giving us a chance to miss its smash hit series Game of Thrones 'coz just months after the controversial final season wrapped, a prequel is already in the works, The Hollywood Reporter reveals.

Another unnamed prequel, which is set tens of thousands of years before the events of GoT and chronicles the beginning of the White Walkers, has just finished shooting a pilot in Italy.

Written by Jade Goldman, it stars Australian actor Naomi Watts in the lead role as a "socialite with a dark secret".

Game of Thrones just wrapped in May, but we're nowhere near done seeing adaptations of George R.R. Martin's expansive sourcework on the small screen. It's expected to debut next year if greenlit.

Fire & Blood, released in 2018, is a book by Martin that specifically explores the Targaryen lineage, including Aegon the Conqueror's creation of the Iron Throne, as well as the Dance of Dragons, a massive civil war, which is speculated to be a part of the new prequel.

Game of Thrones, which is available to stream on Neon, touched on the fascinating history of House Targaryen, but by the end of the show, which aired its eighth and final season in May, it had nearly died out.

For my money, a series about Aegon's Conquest and the political inner-workings behind Targaryen rule in the Seven Kingdoms is far more exciting than the more ancient history - the origin of the White Walkers and "the Starks of legend" - it seems Bloodmoon will center around.

You can also anticipate some weird incest shenanigans, with Aegon having married both of his sisters, Visenya and Rhaenys. "I can not say. But maybe some of you should pick up a copy of FIRE & BLOOD and come up with your own theories", Martin said.
