We’re all anxiously waiting for the eighth and final season of Game Of Thrones, while we suffer through the slings of an outrageous winter here in Australia.
But to make it all worth it, HBO has just confirmed something very exciting!
That whole ‘prequel series’ we’ve been hearing about was just greenlit, which means it IS happening!
The unnamed prequel will be created and written by George R. R. Martin and Jane Goldman, and will be set thousands of years before all the events portrayed in Game Of Thrones.
HBO has released an official description of the series, which reads:
"Taking place 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’s 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.”
We cannot wait to see this!!!
Unfortunately, we will have to wait, because this particular series won’t air until 2020 at the earliest.
We also have four other possible prequel projects to look forward to, so keep an eye out!
