HBO Has Ordered A Prequel To 'Game Of Thrones'

Whether it's the Game of Thrones adaptation on HBO, being an executive producer on the upcoming Nightflyers series on SyFy, and, of course, writing the next book in the A Song of Ice and Fire saga, The Winds of Winter.

Last year, with the final season of Game of Thrones shown on television, HBO revealed that it had tasked several writers with developing potential Game of Thrones spinoff series that could fill the void left by the pay cable network's biggest show ever.

The first of four or five (!) GoT spin-off shows centered around George R.R. Martin's fantasy world of dragons and White Walkers has been ordered to pilot, according to BBC, and we finally have more details about what this prequel will include.

Per the ordered pilot's official logline, "the series chronicles the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour".

Vettel was understandably less than impressed with the gaffe as he went on team radio to say: "Tell them not to wave the chequered flag when it's not done yet".

George R.R. Martin weighed in on HBO greenlighting a Game of Thrones prequel pilot, giving some thoughts on the project, what its title should be and how the pilot order will impact - or in this case won't impact - his work on the long-awaited The Winds of Winter.

In the Thrones universe, "the Long Night" refers to an epoch in which night lasted a generation, Westeros was decimated and the White Walkers rose to power.

There's no director, cast, location or title yet, Martin says - but he does have a title idea.

Anyway, Game of Thrones fans will be absolutely delighted to here that the other spinoff shows are still being pursued and that they're very much alive. But that does not mean the others are dead. "Everything I am told indicates that we could film at least one more pilot, and maybe more than one, in the years to come".
