Game of Thrones was one such TV show that had fans hooked. Week after week, fans would tune in right when it aired (or watch the newest episode they'd recorded) to see what would happen next. Some people love this franchise, and some people hate it- each for various reasons. If you happen to fall under the former camp, then you're going to want to hear this!
The second Game of Thrones prequel has been confirmed to be in the works. While there's no word as to when it will come out on HBO and details have been far and few between, fans of the fantasy series are already getting excited. After all, it's another excuse to watch more Game of Thrones goodness for those who miss tuning in to the aforementioned TV series!
This new prequel was confirmed to be set about 300 years prior to what happened in the original Game of Thrones series. The man behind this successful franchise, George R.R. Martin, will collaborate with writer Ryan J. Condal on the script of this new TV series. Speaking of, this TV series is going to be based on Fire & Blood, Martin's two-part book series. It's a spin-off to the A Song of Fire and Ice books that go into more detail on House Targaryen.
As previously mentioned above, this is the second Game of Thrones prequel series that's being developed for HBO. Back in June of 2018, the premium cable network announced that another prequel series is in the works. This first series will take place several thousand years before the events of the main series. HBO explained that it's going to explore, "the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour." This series is set to premiere sometime in 2021.
What's interesting is that, while the first Fire & Blood book came out back in November of 2018, the sequel has yet to be released. There's been no word from Martin as to when it will come out- not even a rumour of a release date. So, it could be that the TV series based on this two-part book series won't be out for a few years to come.
Until then, we can't wait to see the next offering from the Game of Thrones franchise!
