Game Of Thrones Prequel Focused On The Targaryens In The Works

HBO Nears Ordering Pilot for'Game of Thrones House Targaryen Prequel Series

We already know about one prequel, starring Naomi Watts and informally codenamed Bloodmoon, and now we're learning about a new prequel series based on Martin's supplementary Fire & Blood novel, set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.

Focusing on Westeros during another period of civil war makes it a little too derivative of Game of Thrones for my taste, and if the hook of this new show is the dragons, I don't see why we should jump into a story where all the dragons die very rapidly and brutally. Now, Deadline reports that another prequel series could be greenlit by HBO and this one will focus on the Targaryen heritage. But it sure seems logical.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network is nearing a pilot commitment for a prequel series based on Geroge R.R. Martin's "Fire & Blood", a companion book to the author's "Song of Fire and Ice" saga.

North Korea has also conducted at least eight test launches since then, usually with multiple missiles each time. People watch a TV showing a file image of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the Seoul Railway Station Tuesday.

A Game of Thrones prequel on House Targaryen is now in the works, the script of which will be co-written by George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal. Despite the fan backlash to the finale, Game of Thrones remains as HBO's most-watched scripted original ever.

Martin himself wrote about all the possible GoT follow-ups in a blog post in May, where he hinted at a Targaryen prequel. "The one I am not supposed to call THE LONG NIGHT will be shooting later this year, and two other shows remain in the script stage, but are edging closer". It was just a few months before when they made the announcement and the fans are hoping that this show will be better than the last series of the show. He's listed as co-showrunner, alongside Ryan Condal, who is the man behind acclaimed speculative fiction miniseries Colony. "But maybe some of you should pick up a copy of "Fire & Blood" and come up with your own theories". The first untitled show is set thousands of years before the events of the hit TV show. I am binging it right now and studying.
