The second Game of Thrones prequel is reportedly close to nabbing a pilot order from HBO according to Deadline. This new prequel from George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal would focus on the House Targaryen 300 years in the past. The ruling Westeros family wields a special bond with dragons and have used that as a means to secure power.
I’ve learned that HBO is close to giving a pilot order to a GoT prequel from author and GoT co-executive producer George R.R. Martin and Colony co-creator/exec producer Ryan Condal, which is set 300 years before the events in Game of Thrones and tracks the beginning of the end for House Targaryen. The network declined comment.
This would support previous statements made by George R.R. Martin that multiple spinoffs were still in the works at HBO, despite a couple not making it to pilot.
Bloodmoon (formerly known as The Long Night) is the first pilot to get filmed as it was penned by Jane Goldman (X-Men: First Class, Kingsman) and directed by S.J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones, The Defenders). That finished production seemingly weeks ago and there hasn’t been an official word if they’ll be going directly into a series order, just yet.
This new series won’t go as far back into the past as Bloodmoon.
There is expected to be another three potential shows in the works according to Martin, who is seemingly directly involved with these first two that have been announced and like the others as well.
