HBO confirms Game of Thrones prequel

HBO Confirms Their ‘Game Of Thrones’ PREQUEL Series

According to Variety, the series will take place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones and would chronicle the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.

George R.R. Martin weighed in on HBO greenlighting a Game of Thrones prequel pilot, giving some thoughts on the project, what its title should be and how the pilot order will impact - or in this case won't impact - his work on the long-awaited The Winds of Winter.

Jane Goldman is set to serve as the prequel series' showrunner.

In the Thrones universe, "the Long Night" refers to an epoch in which night lasted a generation, Westeros was decimated and the White Walkers rose to power.

LOS ANGELES- The mythical saga "Game of Thrones" eighth season will be running on channels in the year 2019. It's unclear what the world of Westeros looks like that far into the past, so it's unclear at this juncture if we'll see the origins of the White Walkers, or if we get a glimpse into the lives of the early Starks, Targaryens or Greyjoys.

HBO said it had given a pilot order to a prequel that will take place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the biggest worldwide hit for the Time Warner channel.

Martin also revealed that there's a chance we could be getting even more Thrones spinoff series.

Martin also offered an update on other possible Game of Thrones spin-offs (HBO wants more than one, because of course they do).

But author George R.R. Martin, whose Song of Ice and Fire book series inspired the series, spilled a little more news on his website on Monday.

He said the spirit of the LGBT community is one that "says no to oppression". "We are all sacred and we all belong". She has also been seen on Broadway in Once, Indecent, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and The Miracle Worker .


On his personal site, Martin discussed HBO giving the green light to Jane Goldman's series, noting that no characters from Game of Thrones will appear, as it's set tens of thousands of hears before the main series. As for the other prequels: one has been "shelved", while the three others "remain in active development" (Martin expects at least one more pilot to be filmed).
