Game of Thrones is one of the best shows of all time that suffered horrible writing in its eighth season. While fans may not be ready to forget that yet, they can get excited because according to a Deadline report, HBO is considering a prequel to Game of Thrones by revisiting some core source material in the works of George R.R Martin.
While George himself is currently working on From Software’s highly anticipated video game Elden Ring – which was announced a few years back but hasn’t gotten a release date yet – the source material might just be sufficient enough to guide the story.
While it might shock some fans, but Deadline reported that Game of Thrones is getting a total of three side projects, and the one that’s progressed far into development is built around the great sea voyages. According to the lore, Velaryon “journeyed to places including Pentos, Dragonstone and around the bottom of Westeros as well as to Lys, Tyrosh and Myr. He reached the fabled lands of Yi Ti and Leng, whose wealth doubled that of the House Velaryon, and him and the Ice Wolf headed north searching for passage around the top of Westeros, only to find frozen seas and icebergs as big as mountains.”
Corlys Velaryon is going appear in yet another prequel, based on the House of the Dragon, so these two probably will have a strong connection. While Bruno Heller has been hired to look at the creative execution of the series, no writers have been reported to gotten on the project as of yet.
While the next project is based on the Flea Bottom, it might just be that HBO is just entertaining these prequels as a good plan to get viewers in the future. But if these are really going to be released, then fans have some serious binge watching to do.
