Game of Thrones Pilot Prequel Gets Greenlight

Game of Thrones Pilot Prequel Gets Greenlight

According to a report by Entertainment Weekly HBO has given the greenlight for a pilot to a Game of Thrones prequel. The series would be headed up by Jane Goldman, known for writing the screen adaptations of Kick-Ass and the Kingsman series and for her work in the X-Men film series. She would work in tandem with Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin.

There are little details on the specifics of the show. What is known is that it will take place thousands of years prior to Game of Thrones and post the Age of Heroes. The series aims to explore things such as “the horrifying secrets of Westeros’s history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend.”

Game of Thrones is set to end in 2019 and HBO has said that a prequel shouldn’t be expected until at least a year after the series finale. This means at the earliest we can expect a new series in the franchise in 2020–and that’s if the pilot gets a good reaction. That said, HBO is definitely invested in the Game of Thrones franchise as it is entertaining other prequel concepts at the moment.
