The post (and pre) Game Of Thrones universe is taking shape. HBO has officially ordered a pilot for the first Game Of Thrones prequel series from Jane Goldman and George R.R. Martin, Deadline reports:
Created by Goldman & Martin and written by Goldman based on a story by her and Martin, the untitled project takes the prequel concept to a new level as it is set 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’ 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.
Goldman will serve as showrunner and will executive produce alongside Martin as well as fellow GOT co-executive producer Vince Gerardis and Damages and Bloodline co-creator/exec producer Daniel Zelman. As previously announced, GOT creators/exec producers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss have no involvement in the potential offshoots.
Will you watch the Game Of Thrones spinoff/prequel series, should it be ordered to series as expected?
Will the first GOT prequel have a lengthy multi-season run like the original series? Stay tuned as the cancellation reaper begins the hunt…
