Ravens have brought a good news for Game of Thrones fanatics! Though you would be missing the popular fantasy drama series after the grand finale, but the story isn’t over yet. The prequel of GOT has been confirmed and there is more mystery hovering over Westeros that is yet to be unraveled.
The fictional world of Westeros won’t disappear after the mythical saga Game of Thrones wraps in 2019. According to Daily Mail, HBO has ordered a pilot for the untitled prequel, created by author George RR Martin and screenwriter Jane Goldman.
Although, sadly, creators of GOT, David Benioff, and Dan Weiss will not be involved in this project. According to Hollywood Reporter, “The showrunners are uninvolved in the successor show effort, focusing instead on the forthcoming final season of Thrones after more than a decade spent wandering the world of the Seven Kingdoms.”
The story would be set up in the years that go way back than what we have witnessed yet in Westeros. It will chronicle the world’s descent from the golden age of heroes to its darkest hour. Earlier in June HBO revealed that they were considering five possible ideas.
The logline continued: “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.”
Meanwhile, the Game of Thrones cast is currently shooting for the season finale of the show. The premiere date of the show hasn’t been announced yet.
