Yes, you read that right. A new and fifth prequel to Game Of Thrones is currently in the process of being ordered by HBO. After House of the Dragon, the fans are just waiting for it. But we shouldn't abuse it either… After all, by hearing from right and left that new spin-offs are in preparation, we tend to get lost there. So, before giving you a complete recap of ALL the upcoming spin-off series, let's start with this famous prequel, a long-standing project.
Game of Thrones: a prequel centered on Aegon I Targaryen
Originally, the famous upcoming spin-off was to be called “Aegon’s Conquest” (Aegon's Conquest in French, editor's note). This is a long-running project that looks back on the conquest of the Seven Kingdoms, including Westeros, by King Aegon 1st Targaryen. Okay, for those who haven't seen Game Of Thrones, move on, we are well aware that we do not speak the same language. Anyway, this prequel, likeHouse of the Dragonshould be inspired by the anthological novel Fire & Blood written by the famous George RR Martin. For the moment, its release is still uncertain since it has not been officially ordered by HBO. On the other hand, it would indeed be in the pipeline. In fact, according to our colleagues at Hollywood Reporter, he is the screenwriter of The Batman who was reportedly hired to oversee the series. Patience, patience…
What are the upcoming spin-offs?
Four prequels in preparation!
So patience is good, but not too much either. Because after so many rumors and speculations, it's difficult to see clearly what HBO's game is. The question everyone is asking: where are ALL of the spin-offs of Game Of Thrones. Among the confirmed series, season 2 ofHouse of the Dragon which should see the light of day in the summer of 2024. Good news for fans since the first season was a great success!
Another prequel to have been validated by production: The Knight Errant. This is an adaptation of the first book of the novels “Tales of Dunk & Egg”, set approximately 100 years before the events of GoT. Short stories that follow the journey of Ser Duncan the Great, aka Dunk, and his young squire Aegon Targaryen, who would later become King Aegon V. Yes we know, there are a lot of Aegons in the universe Game Of Thrones. Other project: 10,000 ships, a series retracing the incredible journey of Princess Nymeria. Finally, one of the most anticipated, the spin-off series centered on Jon Snow character. Although the show is highly anticipated, it is still in the development stage at HBO. After all, that’s a lot of series to develop all that…
Highly anticipated animated series
But hold on, that’s not all! Several animated series are also in the pipeline. To know The Golden Empire of Yi Ti, a story centered on the territory of the Far East, east of Essos. The opportunity to discover more about the world of Game Of Thrones and on this mystical region, very little discussed in the parent series. Fans will also be able to possibly see the arrival of a series around the Corlys Velaryon character, aka the Sea Serpent. A character introduced in House of the Dragon, performed by Steve Toussaint. So, can't wait to discover all this?
Game of Thrones: several projects finally canceled
Unfortunately (or fortunately), several projects have been canceled. Notably Flea Bottom, a series focusing on this little-known eponymous district in King's Landing, the capital of Westeros. If the show could have allowed us to discover more about this city and its inhabitants, the series did not go beyond the concept stage. Before finally being canceled for good by HBO in 2021. Damage !
And one of the most anticipated spin-offs which will ultimately never see the light of day: “Bloodmoon” Or “The Long Night.” In fact, no name had been officially given to him. It was a series project commissioned by the channel, taking place thousands of years before the events of Game Of Thrones. It was to tell the true origins of the White Walkers and thus reveal one of the greatest secrets of Westeros. A prequel whose first pilot episode had even been filmed! Unfortunately, HBO ultimately canceled the project in 2019, without any reason. Sadness.
