“Game of Thrones” fans are one step closer to getting more fantasy-world action from HBO, with the network reportedly ordering a pilot for a new prequel to the show.
Writer Jane Goldman, who was tapped to be the prequel’s showrunner, developed her prequel concept alongside George R.R. Martin, who wrote the novel series that inspired the hugely popular show, the outlet said. The pair will reportedly also serve as executive producers, in addition to Daniel Zelman and Vince Gerardis.
Specifics about the show at this point are scant but the network has revealed that it’ll depict “the worlds’ descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” is set to debut in 2019.
