HBO Reportedly Close to Ordering Game of Thrones House Targaryen Prequel Pilot

New Game of Thrones prequel series based on House Targaryen reportedly in the works at HBO

New Game of Thrones prequel series based on House Targaryen reportedly in the works at HBO

But that doesn't mean that people don't have a burning (pun intended) desire for more Game of Thrones - a desire HBO is all too keen to service.

For my money, a series about Aegon's Conquest and the political inner-workings behind Targaryen rule in the Seven Kingdoms is far more exciting than the more ancient history - the origin of the White Walkers and "the Starks of legend" - it seems Bloodmoon will center around. Fitting, then, that the news has begun to leak out today confirming rumors that had been circulating for a while now - namely, that HBO is nowhere close to leaving the Game of Thrones franchise behind and is reportedly poised to actually greenlight a second Thrones prequel series to complement the Naomi Watts-led prequel which just finished shooting its pilot episode. Martin had hinted at the project for a while on his blog, imploring fans looking for answers on the unannounced prequels to read Fire & Blood for clues.

Yep, there's soon set to be a lot more George R.R. Martin hitting the airwaves, with another prequel series just announced.

"We have had five different GAME OF THRONES successor shows in development (I mislike the term "spinoffs") at HBO, and three of them are still moving forward nicely", he wrote at the time.

Retail inflation rose to 3.21% in August - the highest in 10 months
The core PCE price index rose 1.6 per cent on a year-on-year basis in July and has fallen short of its target this year. Factory output , as measured by the Index of Industrial Production (IIP), had expanded 6.5 percent in July 2018.

"Two other shows remain in the script stage, but are edging closer". It should not come as a surprise that this new prequel focusing on the Targaryen dynasty would be based on the newest Martin book, given that "fire and blood" are the key words associated with that family.

FBN's Cheryl Casone on the record-setting number of viewers for the "Game of Thrones" finale and HBO's potential loss of subscribers now that the show is over. Martin will write the script for the revamped prequel alongside Ryan Condal, who previously co-created the United States of America series Colony.

Nine other stars have also signed on, including Jonathan Whitehouse, Naomi Ackie, Jamie Campbell Bower, Denise Gough, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Georgie Henley, Alex Sharp and Toby Regbo.

The final season of Game of Thrones was - well, let's just call it controversial.
