With the end of HBO’s popular Game of Thrones coming next year, as most fans know by now, HBO is keeping its Game of Thrones saga going after the show wraps its final season. That will be taking the form of an upcoming prequel series, which will be set in the ancient days of Westeros, during the era known as “The Long Night.” With this in mind, the schedule for beginning work on the prequel has been tentatively scheduled.
Omega Underground has reported that production on the yet un-named Game of Thrones prequel could begin in February 2019. Locations will include Belfast, Northern Ireland, at the Paint Hall/Titanic Studios. These are pretty much the same locations used for many of the original Game of Thrones episodes. In other news, Jane Goldman has been named as showrunner of the series. Goldman has extensive experience with these types of properties including X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass and The Kingsman. This broad based expertise has made her a fan-favorite for that position on this next installment of the Game of Thrones franchise.
Does the upcoming prequel help ease the pain of the soon to be ending Game of Thrones? What do you expect to see from this new(old) saga? Tell us your aspirations here at GVNation.
