“Game of Thrones” fans, rejoice…maybe?
There have been rumours about a Thrones prequel for a long time now, but now there is some concrete evidence that HBO is still pursuing that dream.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the network’s programming president Casey Bloys says HBO is stills in talks with author George R.R. Martin about another series
Bloys said, “I would say it’s still kind of preliminary ongoing talks.”
Bloys didn’t specify which parts of Martin’s works could be adapted, so let’s speculate, shall we?
Besides his A Song of Ice and Fire novels (the inspiration for Game of Thrones) Martin has his Dunk and Egg novellas, which are prequels to the series. Plus, there is a lot of backstory with Robert’s Rebellion that fans want to see. Robert’s Rebellion is the war that put Robert Baratheon on the throne and eventually led to the craziness Westeros is going through now.
As far as the possibility of expanding “Game of Thrones” Season 8 from the measly 6 episodes we’re reportedly getting? Bloys said, “I’ll take as much as we can get.”
In other words, your watch hasn’t ended just yet.
You know nothing, Jon Snow.
