    Default Game of Thrones Prequel

    HBO has ordered one of the four Game of Thrones prequel scripts in the works to pilot. The winner in this contest to develop the next series based on author George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy universe is British writer and producer Jane Goldman’s story set in the decline of the Age of Heroes.

    Fans of Martin’s series of novels and companion works will recognize this period as the beginning of the legendary Long Night, a generation of winter that starved and froze the populace of Westeros and saw a fierce battle of the Others (White Walkers) and their army of dead (wights) against the living.

    The storyline: “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’ 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,” EW reported.

    HBO has said that any new series would not premiere until at least a year after Game of Thrones ends. The current series will air its eighth and final season next summer, so the earliest the prequel would appear would be in 2020.

    I'm really curious how this will look like. Goldman will have to develop most of the characters and story, as the info about the Long Night in the books and even the companion books is limited and comes in the form of legends. No doubt they'll be consulting Martin, but he's clarified that his role in this is limited.
    You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

    I'm kind of excited for this even though you'd have to have someone who is a great storyteller to run this show... They don't have Martin's back for plots anymore.
