A Game of Thrones Prequel Is Officially Happening

‘Game Of Thrones’ Prequel From Jane Goldman & George R.R. Martin Gets HBO Pilot Order OFFICIAL: HBO Reveals Details Behind 'Game Of Thrones' Prequel Spinoff

"The series chronicles the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour", the show's logline reads. Author George R.R. Martin wrote the story for the pilot along with Goldman ("Kingsman", "X-Men: First Class)". According to Deadline, at least one other prequel has a chance of a pilot order right now, though HBO is feeling no rush at the moment. That to me says we should be looking at a late 2020 release for the prequel, but as soon as we get something concrete, we'll be sure to let you know.

Regardless of the next steps, we'll have to be patient.

The final season of "Game of Thrones" is due to air on HBO in 2019. HBO continues to develop other Game of Thrones spinoffs with writers Carly Wray (Mad Men, Westworld), Brian Helgeland (Mystic River), and Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island) but there's no guarantee we'll see all of them go to pilot. The Age of Heroes begins about 10,000 years before the current time frame in "Game of Thrones".

The premium cabler has enlisted Jane Goldman as the series showrunner. Numerous great Houses in Westeros can trace their origins back to the heroes of this age: Bran the Builder for House Stark and Lann the Clever for House Lannister.

The latest Game of Thrones trailer sets the Ice King among the pigeons. Nan told Bran on the first season of HBO's iconic series. "Game of Thrones" co-executive producer Vince Gerardis and Daniel Zelman ("Bloodline") will also serve as EPs. "What I don't want is that the attention to be drawn off the final season, which I think is going to be epic and fantastic and have the distraction of a new Game of Thrones airing right after it". Goldman also wrote the screenplay for Disney's live action version of "The Little Mermaid", which is now in development.

HBO has announced that Game of Thrones fans are about to learn about the "Horrifying secrets of Westeros's history".
