Fans of the popular series Game of Thrones have one better reason to rejoice as reportedly a second prequel of the show is in the works at HBO. Reports suggest it will be based on House Targaryen, aka mother of the dragon’s clan.
The Targaryen prequel is not one of the previously reported prequels that have been already in works at the cable network since 2017. Instead, it is going to be a new take on the world that was being developed by GOT writer Bryan Cogman.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the pilot, which is near a deal with the premium cable network, would focus on House Targaryen (a fictional exiled Great House of Westeros and the former royal house of the Seven Kingdoms).
Reports also suggest that the prequel will be set 300 years before the events of the original series and will track the beginnings and the end of House Targaryen.
As being reported the screenwriter Ryan Condal and Game of Thrones author George RR Martin will write the script for the upcoming drama, which is based on Martin’s book Fire and Blood.
The book tells the stories of previous Targaryen kings, like Aegon the Conqueror, the first ruler of Westeros, and Aegon the Dragonbane, all of whom are ancestors of Daenerys Targaryen (actor Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (actor Kit Harington) who last appeared in ‘GoT’.
