Game of Thrones Prequel Pilot Greenlit at HBO!

Game of Thrones Prequel Pilot Greenlit at HBO!
Game of Thrones prequel pilot greenlit at HBO

As cast and crew continue wrapping up production on the final season of Game of Thrones, HBO has announced that the Game of Thrones prequel pilot from author and co-executive producer George R.R. Martin and writer Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, Kingsman) has been greenlit by the network!

The big-budgeted spinoff is created by Goldman and Martin and written by Goldman based on a story by her and Martin, the untitled pilot takes the prequel concept to a new level as it is set thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones. The series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And 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.

Goldman is serving as showrunner and will executive produce alongside Martin as well as fellow Game of Thrones executive producer Vince Gerardis and co-creator/executive producer Daniel Zelman (Damages, Bloodline).

The untitled project from Martin and Goldman is one of five Game of Thrones prequels HBO had put in development, signing deals with five writers to join Marin in the development and writing of five spinoffs of the blockbuster fantasy series that don’t feature Game of Thrones characters. The other four writers are Max Borenstein, Brian Helgeland, Cary Wray, and Bryan Cogman. The other scripts have yet to be greenlit, but there doesn’t appear to be any rush or pressure to do so right away.

While no additional details have been released, HBO’s desire to keep the final season of Game of Thrones separate and its own before launching the spinoffs may mean a 2020 launch for the prequel pilot.

In addition to the final season of Game of Thrones, HBO’s drama series slate includes Westworld, currently airing season two and renewed for a third season, the recently premiered Succession, the upcoming Sharp Objects limited series starring Amy Adams, the J.J. Abrams’ recently ordered Demimonde, season three of True Detective and the second seasons of Big Little Lies and The Deuce.

Other HBO drama pilot also includes Damon Lindeloff’s Watchmen, Zandaya’s Euphoria, and J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele’s Lovecraft Country.

George R.R. Martin Talks Game of Thrones Spin-Offs, Reveals One is Dead

George R.R. Martin talks Game of Thrones spin-offs, reveals one is dead

Last week HBO announced that the Game of Thrones prequel pilot from author and co-executive producer George R.R. Martin and writer Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, Kingsman) had been greenlit. Now Martin has shared his perspective on his blog, taking the time to clarify information that has already been revealed, but also giving fans a better idea of what they can likely expect.

In discussing what this pilot would tackle in the Game of Thrones universe, Martin explained:

“Yes, this is a prequel, not a sequel. None of the characters or actors from GAME OF THRONES will appear in the new show. All of the successor shows we’ve been developing have been prequels, as I have mentioned before. This one really puts the PRE in prequel, since it is set not ninety years before GAME OF THRONES (like Dunk & Egg), or a few hundred years, but rather ten thousand years (well, assuming the oral histories of the First Men are accurate, but there are maesters at the Citadel who insist it has only been half that long). We’re very early in the process, of course, with the pilot order just in, so we don’t have a director yet, or a cast, or a location, or even a title. (My vote would be THE LONG NIGHT, which says it all, but I’d be surprised if that’s where we end up. More likely HBO will want to work the phrase “game of thrones” in there somewhere. We’ll know sooner or later).”

He also dove into what we could expect from the other shows that HBO has in development as part of their spinoff deal and revealed one of them is already not moving forward:

“As for the other successor shows…if you have been following along, you know that we started with four, and eventually went to five. One of those has been shelved, I am given to understand, and of course Jane’s pilot is now moving to film. But that does not mean the others are dead. Three more GAME OF THRONES prequels, set in different periods and featuring different characters and storylines, remain in active development. Everything I am told indicates that we could film at least one more pilot, and maybe more than one, in the years to come. We do have an entire world and tens of thousands of years of history to play with, after all.   But this is television, so nothing is certain.”

The other four writers working on spinoffs are Max Borenstein, Brian Helgeland, Cary Wray, and Bryan Cogman. The other scripts have yet to be greenlit, but there doesn’t appear to be any rush or pressure to do so right away.

While no additional details have been released, HBO’s desire to keep the final season of Game of Thrones separate and its own before launching the spinoffs may mean a 2020 launch for the prequel pilot.
