Yet another 'Game of Thrones' prequel is coming

A Game of Thrones prequel series tracking the beginning of the end for House Targaryen is reportedly nearing a pilot order from HBO.

Game of Thrones might be over on HBO, but HBO isn't finished throwing more Game of Thrones content your way. Because HBO is working on not one but four prequels to quench our appetite. But it sure seems logical.

Author behind the original series, George R.R. Martin, has already released a book detailing the history of the Targaryens called Fire and Blood, meaning HBO has plenty of source material to work with.

Set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones, the potential series would be based on George R.R. Martin's novel Fire & Blood and chronicle the gradual downfall of the white-haired dragon overlords.

Deadline first reported the development news.

Interestingly, Martin teased that this would be the setting of the third Game of Thrones series nearly a year ago.

Martin himself wrote about all the possible GoT follow-ups in a blog post in May, where he hinted at a Targaryen prequel. Jane Goldman will serve as showrunner and co-created the series with Martin, and S.J. Clarkson will direct the pilot and executive produce.

The Targaryen Thrones prequel was one of the "two other shows" that were in the scripting phase as of May, when Martin talked about it on his blog. "I can not say. But maybe some of you should pick up a copy of FIRE & BLOOD and come up with your own theories", Martin said. It was just a few months before when they made the announcement and the fans are hoping that this show will be better than the last series of the show.

The as-yet untitled project, now in post-production, will also feature Josh Whitehouse, Miranda Richardson, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, and Jamie Campbell Bower. I am binging it right now and studying.

With this in mind, presumably, this new Game of Thrones spin-off will focus on Aegon the Conqueror becoming the first Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, the Iron Throne's construction and his early rule with sister queens Visenya and Rhaenys.
