George RR Martin Suggests A Possible Game Of Thrones Prequel Title

The Winds of Winter Release Date

HBO said it had given a pilot order to a prequel that will take place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the biggest global hit for the Time Warner channel.

Martin also revealed one of the other four HBO prequel ideas in development has been rejected, but the other three remain in active development and could also eventually get a pilot order (we hear Kong: Skull Island writer Max Borenstein's script is particularly good).

It will chronicle the world's descent from the golden age of heroes to its darkest hour, according to HBO.

If Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin has his way, the drama's recently ordered spinoff pilot will be called The Long Night. This one really puts the PRE in prequel, since it is set not ninety years before GAME OF THRONES (like Dunk & Egg), or a few hundred years, but rather ten thousand years (well, assuming the oral histories of the First Men are accurate, but there are maesters at the Citadel who insist it has only been half that long). And he has high praise for Jane Goldman, who will serve as showrunner for the new series.

Game of Thrones has become a global phenomenon with its whimsical world of dragons and White Walkers on one hand, and a touch of reality with the complexity of emotions, relationships and how they can not be trusted when it comes to ruling a kingdom. Meanwhile, the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is scheduled to premiere in 2019. Below, Martin offers new details on the series, and suggests a possible Game of Thrones prequel title.

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.

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