‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel Gets a Pilot

2 Min Read


Though it has already been announced by HBO, George R. R. Martin confirmed today that one of the potential prequels of Game of Thrones has been picked up for a pilot.

The prequel, written by showrunner Jane Goldman, is set approximately 10,000 years before the events of Game of Thrones, and is meant to explore the history of the First Men and The Long Night when White Walkers first made an appearance. Martin explains that because this prequel is so far into the future, no characters or storylines from the original Game of Thrones series will be part of the new series. Jane Goldman, who scripted the pilot, is known for writing the Kingsman series, X-Men: First ClassKick-AssStardust, and the new live-action The Little Mermaid. So far there hasn’t been any news on the pilot other than the general plot and who wrote the script, but we look forward to learning more as HBO progresses into shooting.

Three other potential pilots are also in the works, according to Martin. All are prequels, but set in very different time periods. Nothing more is known about these prequels except that they too might be picked up for a pilot sometime down the road.

We cannot wait to hear more about what new adventures await in the world of Game of Thrones. We have high hopes that the new pilot will be just as entertaining as the show we already love and will ordered to series!
