The ultimate season of Game of Thrones will arrive on our TV screens in 2019, however that does not imply HBO is saying goodbye to Westeros perpetually. On Friday, the community introduced that a prequel series is formally within the works, and it should introduce us to an entire new crop of fascinating characters.
The pilot for the prequel is ready hundreds of years earlier than the occasions featured in writer George R. R. Martin’s Track of Ice and Fireplace collection, that means that the present seemingly will not embody appearances from Jon Snow, Daenerys, Sansa, Arya, and the remainder of the gang (no matter whether or not or not they make it out of their very own collection alive).
In accordance with HBO’s description of the as-yet-untitled undertaking, “The collection chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour, and just one factor is for positive: from the horrifying secrets and techniques of Westeros’s historical past to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend . . . it isn’t the story we predict we all know.”
Ominous, no? Following within the footsteps of showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are Martin and Jane Goldman, a British screenwriter and producing duo who will tackle showrunning duties for the prequel if it will get picked up for a full season.
The one draw back of all this thrilling information? The present seemingly won’t be available until 2020. Then once more, that must be simply sufficient time for us to heal our emotional wounds after Recreation of Thrones airs its collection finale.
