HBO Confirms 'Game Of Thrones' Prequel

Game of Thrones Prequel Pilot Title The Long Night

It's reportedly going to tackle the dark ancient history of Westeros, chronicling the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. With the news that Martin is a co-creator of the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel, with Jane Goldman serving as showrunner, Martin took to his personal site to suggest a name for the Game of Thrones prequel.

"Game of Thrones" has become worldwide famous.

Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones. She and Martin will executive produce along with Daniel Zelman and Game of Thrones executive producer Vince Gerardis. In the midst of this cold climate, the White Walkers soon descended upon Westoros from the north and engaged in a long war in an attempt to cover the world in an interminable winter. All of the successor shows we've been developing have been prequels, as I have mentioned before.

On the heels of last week's news that HBO had officially greenlit a Game of Thrones prequel series pilot, author George R.R. Martin - whose A Song of Ice and Fire books are the basis for the hit HBO series - has weighed in about his involvement in the forthcoming series...specifically, that he isn't really all that involved at all.

There's no director, cast, location or title yet, Martin says - but he does have a title idea. It occurred during the Age of Heroes approximately eight thousand years before Aegon's Conquest, in the midst of a great winter that lasted for years. Sounds pleasant! Just kidding - it sounds bleak and emotionally crushing, just like Game of Thrones.

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. One of those has been shelved, I am given to understand, and of course Jane's pilot is now moving to film.

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

Nothing is certain indeed.

George R.R. Martin is certainly a busy man.
