Look, Game of Thrones is a highly entertaining and successful TV show, so you’ll forgive us when we say we’re not surprised by this news. But, that doesn’t mean we’re any less excited about it because we could always use more GoT in our lives.
But what’s gotten us even more excited are these recently released details about the spinoff…
#1 The spinoff is a prequel set thousands of years before the events of the ongoing GoT series and will chronicle the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.
#2 A logline teased the plot: “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.”
#3 The pilot is written by Jane Goldman (X-Men: First Class) who’ll also serve as the showrunner. Author George RR Martin will serve as executive producer.
#4 None of the current GoT actors and actresses will appear in this prequel spinoff (Awww, man).
#5 HBO hopes to start shooting the pilot next year (2019), but tells us that it won’t debut until at least a year after the final season of GoT, which will only start in the first half of 2019.
Are you excited about the prospect of more GoT? It doesn’t matter, the only answer is yes anyway.
