HBO Has Ordered A Prequel To 'Game Of Thrones'

HBO confirms Game of Thrones prequel

"More likely HBO will want to work the phrase Game of Thrones in there somewhere", he wrote.

As he regularly does via this blog, George R.R Martin provided an update on the new show but he also revealed that HBO are still pushing ahead with plans to develop more shows.

Since "Game of Thrones" ends with its eighth season next year, we wouldn't see the prequel, if ordered to series, until at least 2020. George R.R. Martin, the man responsible for the existence of Game of Thrones, took some time off from not writing the latest Song of Ice and Fire book to weigh-in on the spin-off.

The network's official description says that the prequel will be set "thousands of years" before the events of "Game of Thrones".

England were humbled in South Africa , France were bloodied in New Zealand and Ireland went down in Australia last weekend. That's what happened, that's what I asked him.

"I've consulted with all of the writers on all of the successor shows, and several of them have visited me in Santa Fe for long days of discussion, and we've gone back and forth in email, text, and telephone, so I have definitely been involved", Martin wrote.

"Three more Game of Thrones prequels, set in different periods and featuring different characters and storylines, remain in active development", Martin said.

Fear not because our Maesters have already provided an in-depth look at what the show should involve and it's set to be another cracker for anyone that loves Game of Thrones. You may think you know everything there is to know about Game of Thrones, but this series promises to include new details, from the horrifying secrets of Westeros' history to the true origin of the white walkers.

In a post on his website (via Entertainment Weekly), Martin explained that while he's helped with the new pilot as a consultant, the project is going to be fully spearheaded by Kingsman and Kickass writer Jane Goldman. We do have an entire world and tens of thousands of years of history to play with, after all.
