'Game of Thrones': House Targaryen Prequel in the Works at HBO


Deadline reports that HBO is "close to giving a pilot order" to yet another "Game of Thrones" prequel, this time about the origins of the House Targaryen.

This is a new take on the universe that was being developed by GoT fave Bryan Cogman who confirmed earlier this year that the prequel he was working on has been scrapped.

Yep, there's soon set to be a lot more George R.R. Martin hitting the airwaves, with another prequel series just announced. The book is not a part of the series A Song of Ice and Fire which became the base of the show Game of Thrones. If the series ends up being green-lit, you'll likely see the formation of King's Landing and the Iron Throne, the birth of the Baratheon house, and plenty of incest and dragons.

Game of Thrones might be over on HBO, but HBO isn't finished throwing more Game of Thrones content your way.

"Two other shows remain in the script stage, but are edging closer". The 70-year-old author had even cryptically hinted at what one of them was about, by referring to Fire & Blood in the same sentence: "What are they about?"

The next sentence read: "The readers among you might want to grab a copy of FIRE & BLOOD when it is released on November 20, though". (The second one is yet unpublished.) It starts with Aegon I Targaryen's conquest of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, then charts his reign, the lives of his sons Aenys I and Maegor I, the reign of Aenys's son Jaehaerys I, and the succession crisis following the death of his sons. There's so much Targaryen content that George R.R. Martin published a 700-page Targaryen history and it was only the first half of a projected two-volume book. Deadline is reporting that the war, which is known as the Dance of the Dragons and took place 170 years before the war involving the Baratheons, Starks, Greyjoys, and other families and players in Westeros. All three titles have had mixed reactions from critics and audiences.
