HBO confirm their ‘Game Of Thrones’ prequel series

trending

We're all waiting for the latest (and final) season of Game of Thrones, while winter is well and truly coming here in NZ.

But to make it all worth it, HBO has just confirmed something very exciting!

We've been hearing chat about a "prequel series" and it's just been greenlit which means it's 100% 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.”

YES! We can't wait! But we unfortunately WILL have to wait because this series won’t air until 2020 at the earliest.
