'Game of Thrones': House Targaryen Prequel in the Works at HBO

HBO His Dark Materials

A second Game of Thrones prequel series is reportedly in the works at HBO, according to Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter.

"Game of Thrones" was one of the most successful series in HBO's history, shattering viewership records and racking up Emmy nominations. But it sure seems logical. Based on what I've read from Fire & Blood, this series could more closely resemble the Game of Thrones as we know it, with all the cleverly-written extended dialogue sections and soul-destroying tragedy, than what's been revealed about Bloodmoon.

Deadline reports that the series that is in the works at HBO is based on George RR Martin's book Fire and Blood which tells the history of old Targaryen kings.

As it stands, Jon Snow, whose birth name is Aegon Targaryen, is presumably the last living Targaryen after he killed Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) in the series finale. ET has reached out to HBO, who have declined to comment.

Martin wrote in a May post on his personal blog that "five different Game of Thrones successor shows" were in development.

"Two other shows remain in the script stage, but are edging closer". That brings us to the famed civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons - mentioned on the show and in A Song of Ice and Fire book with a similar title - before ending with the first few years of the reign of Aegon III. "I can not say", he wrote on his blog. The only other one to be moving forward to date is set thousands of years before the original series and will star Naomi Watts in a leading role. The show will explore the origins of the White Walkers, the mysteries of Essos and the legends of the early Stark family.

The as-yet untitled project, now in post-production, will also feature Josh Whitehouse, Miranda Richardson, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, and Jamie Campbell Bower.
