Plans for a prequel to Game of Thrones


Well, it’s been a long ride and obsessive GoT fans across the world are struggling to come to terms with the conclusion of the beloved series that ended earlier this week.

Nine years and eight seasons of emotional roller coasters, unpredictability and straight up carnage not only lit up our screens but our hearts too.

But what now? Will any other show ever be able to compete with the highly esteemed series that is Game of Thrones?

Loyal admirers of the show will be pleased to know that a prequel to the show has been announced by HBO and is expected to star Naomi Watts.

Unfortunately the setting of the new spinoff will not feature the characters we have developed a fondness for as the context of the show will be based thousands of years prior to the time of Game of Thrones.

HBO states: “the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. 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, only one thing is for sure: It’s not the story we think we know.”

The new series has adopted the title of Bloodmoon and there are already predictions online surmising that the Children of the Forest, the First Men and the Night King will be integral to the storyline.

The show itself will be produced and created by GoT author George R.R. Martin who will also be accompanied by writer and producer Jane Goldman.

When will the series be aired?

Nobody knows for sure but there are rumours that filming has already begun in Belfast.

We’ve seen it with Lord of the Rings, we’ve seen it with Harry Potter and now we are about to see it with Game of Thrones; every highly rated film or series seems to create a spinoff that is destined to be harshly criticised in comparison to the original. Let’s just hope that Bloodmoon can gain the kind of traction that its wildly popular predecessor has.
