It’s official! A Game of Thrones prequel is happening

The show is set to end in 2019


A Game of Thrones prequel is officially happening, and fans should be VERY excited about it.

E! News has confirmed that HBO has officially given a a pilot order to a currently-untitled prequel, created by George R.R. Martin and Jane Goldman.

The series will be set in Westeros, thousands of years before the events of GOT.

A log line for the pilot reads, “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.”


While a prequel is definitely on the cards, fans hoping for a GOT spinoff or revival will be left disappoint.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, HBO president Casey Bloys insisted that there will be no door left open for future revivals once the show comes to an end in 2019.

“This story, A Song of Fire and Ice, is done. There’s no revival, reboot, spinoff talk,” he said.
