We’re solely a bit greater than every week away from the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards, when HBO and the group behind Sport of Thrones will most assuredly scoop up a formidable haul of golden statuettes. Becoming, then, that the news has begun to leak out in the present day confirming rumors that had been circulating for some time now — particularly, that HBO is nowhere close to leaving the Sport of Thrones franchise behind and is reportedly poised to truly greenlight a second Thrones prequel series to enrich the Naomi Watts-led prequel which simply completed taking pictures its pilot episode.
Deadline reported Thursday afternoon that HBO is close to giving a pilot order to a Thrones prequel helmed by creator George R.R. Martin, naturally, in addition to Ryan Condal — the co-creator and government producer of Colony. It will be set just a few hundred years earlier than the events laid out within the now-completed eight-season Sport of Thrones and observe the collapse of the dynasty that Daenerys Targaryen belonged to.
HBO, in fact, hasn’t commented formally but about this news. One other fascinating tidbit associated to that is that this new prequel series — which has apparently been within the works since late final year — could be based mostly on Martin’s not too long ago printed e-book, Hearth & Blood.
Martin apparently alluded to that truth on his blog earlier this year. In Might, he teased followers who needed to know particulars concerning the prequels: “What are they about? . can not say. However perhaps a few of you must choose up a copy of Hearth & Blood and give you your individual theories.” It mustn’t come as a shock that this new prequel specializing in the Targaryen dynasty could be based mostly on the most recent Martin e-book, provided that “hearth and blood” are the important thing phrases related to that household.
For extra particulars on what this prequel may include, verify out a few of our earlier reporting on Martin’s new e-book. It presents a historical past of the Targaryen kings and is written in a grandiose, sweeping fashion that’s been in comparison with The Historical past of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.
