Fans of "Game of Thrones" season 7 will welcome the news that even if the show reaches its final episode, they will still enjoy watching it through a prequel. Apparently, talks are now ongoing about the production of this prequel with the author of the book where the show was based on. Currently, the show has already reached its seventh season and is still reaping success with more viewers catching on.
Discussions For Prequel Ideas Are Now Ongoing
Casey Bloys, the president of programming at HBO is having talks with R.R. Martin about the ideas for the prequel of "Game of Thrones." "We've talked very, very kind of high-level, like, 'Oh, that would be interesting, a prequel would be interesting, are there areas that make more sense?'" said Bloys in a Nov. 14 interview with TheWrap. "But we haven't - no one has put pen to paper - yet. It's still pretty early on," he added.
According to Bloys, the setting of "Game of Thrones" is a very incredible world that has such a great property that it would be crazy not to explore the idea of a prequel. But he admitted that HBO has not yet pinpointed the time setting of the prequel considering that the Westeros has a vast history where a potential spin-off of the show can be spun.
