George R.R. Martin Reveals Exciting Details for 'Game of Thrones' Prequel Series!

HBO is working on a Game of Thrones prequel series with the book series’ author George R.R. Martin and he just revealed some exciting details.

The prequel, which doesn’t yet have a name, will take place around 5,000 years before the events in Game of Thrones. It’s set in an era known as “The Golden Age of Heroes.”

Game of Thrones followed the rulers of seven kingdoms vying for the Iron Throne, but there will be many more kingdoms in this era.

“If you go back further, then there are nine kingdoms, and 12 kingdoms, and eventually you get back to where there are a hundred kingdoms — petty kingdoms — and that’s the era we’re talking about here,” George told Entertainment Weekly.

The family members of some of your favorite characters will be included.

“The Starks will definitely be there,” he said. “The Lannisters aren’t there yet, but Casterly Rock is certainly there.”

The show will once again be an ensemble piece with stars like Naomi Watts, Miranda Richardson, and Denise Gough.

“For Game of Thrones, we never even nominated anybody for lead actress or lead actor until recently. It was always for supporting [categories] because the show is such an ensemble,” he said. “I think that will be true for this show too. We don’t have leads so much as a large ensemble cast.”

George wants the show to be titled The Long Night.

“I heard a suggestion that it could be called The Longest Night, which is a variant I wouldn’t mind,” he sad. “That would be pretty good.”

'Game of Thrones' Author George R.R. Martin Opens Up About His Planned Ending For Novels

Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin is fondly looking back on the series after its final episode.

On his blog, the writer tried to answer one of fans’ biggest questions – will the books have the same ending as the television series?

“How will it all end? I hear people asking. The same ending as the show? Different? Well…yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes,” George wrote.

While he didn’t quite answer the question, he wanted viewers to know that the “real” ending isn’t important.

“Book or show, which will be the ‘real’ ending? It’s a silly question. How many children did Scarlett O’Hara have?” George added, referencing novel-turned-film Gone With The Wind.

“How about this? I’ll write it. You read it. Then everyone can make up their own mind, and argue about it on the internet,” George concluded.

George has two more novels left in the GOT series, which he did not reveal when would be released.

Make sure to see what George had to say about rumors surrounding the upcoming books.

'Game of Thrones' Author George R.R. Martin Shuts Down Rumors About Final Books

Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin is speaking out about rumors surrounding his final two novels.

According to GOT actor Ian McElhinney, George had already finished The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring but was waiting for the HBO series to conclude before publishing them.

“It boggles me that anyone would believe this story, even for an instant. It makes not a whit of sense. Why would I sit for years on completed novels?” George wrote on his blog.

He continue, “I will, however, say for the record — no, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring are not finished. Dream is not even begun; I am not going to start writing volume seven until I finish volume six. No, the books are not done. HBO did not ask me to delay them. Nor did David [Benioff] & Dan [Weiss]. There is no ‘deal’ to hold back on the books.”

George‘s most recent book in the series, A Dance with Dragons, was published in 2011.

HBO used the first five GOT books to create the series and were given an outline about how George planned to end the final two novels.
