As Game of Thrones starts coming to an end, HBO is plotting plenty of spinoffs. We’ve heard as much as four shows are coming to the network after the end of the hit series, with some being planned to be limited-series.
Though creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will not be involved in any further work with the franchise, feature writer Jane Goldman and co-executive producer George R.R. Martin will be heading the untitled prequel.
Peep the synopsis of the upcoming series:
“Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And 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.”
As of now, the show will not be launched soon after the end of Game of Thrones in 2019, but rather a year or more after the conclusion of the smash show.
In translation: it might be a while until this prequel materializes.
