'Game Of Thrones' Prequel Set A Thousand Years Before Current Show Is Officially Happening

As fans gear up for the final ever season of Game of Thrones, HBO has officially confirmed that a prequel is in the works.


The network has confirmed a pilot order for a prequel to the massively popular show, E! News reports.

A mysterious logline for the new show reads: "Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.

"And only one thing is for sure: from 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...it's not the story we think we know."

Exciting.

The as-yet untitled prequel will be created by George R.R. Martin and Jane Goldman, but sadly for eager fans no release date has been revealed just yet.

In fact, those involved with the show have always said the GOT finale would always need some breathing space before aprequel, sequel or spin-off was launched.

HBO president Casey Bloys told Entertainment Weekly: "We're not using the final season to launch a new show or anything like that. There's going to be a separation between the two. These are among the best writers working and I'm hopeful."

"None of the cast had received the scripts prior," she explained. "And one by one they started to fall down to their deaths.

"By the end, the last few words on the final script, the tears just started falling down. Then there was applause that lasted 15 minutes."

Hankies at the ready then, eh?
