Everything You Need To Know About The GOT Prequel


Share this article


Game of Thrones is finally over, but that won't be the last we see of the GOT universe.

There is a prequel on the way.

Here's everything you need to know about the GOT prequel.

When will it be on TV?

This is yet to be confirmed but we expect to see it on our screen by late 2020 or 2021.

What is the Game of Thrones prequel called? 

HBO hasn't confirmed an official title for the prequel just yet (the actual show has just finished, remember?) but George R.R. Martin did seem to let something slip late last year.

 Or rather, just straight up told everybody what it's probably going to be called.

 

Classic George R.R Martin!

Who's starring in it? 

Of course not keeping is cards close to his chest - Martin gave away that Namoi Watts has been cast in the 'Long Night'.

Since then, Naomi Ackie and Denise Gough have also been added to the bill, the former having starred in Lady MacBeth and the upcoming Star Wars movie, with Gough best known for her work on stage and TV.

Also due to make an appearance or two in the show are Jamie Campbell Bower, Josh Whitehouse, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, and loads of others who you'll definitely recognise to see.

We can't wait to see this!

When is it set? 

Well, it's a prequel so before Game of Thrones was set.

This series is kicking off a whole 5,000 years ago, so we won't be seeing any of our fav characters.

Or 10,000 years ago. Or maybe just one thousand. There's been a bit of discrepancy as to exactly when the series is going to be set, but judging by the show's description, it'll be a long way away from the Westeros we're used to

“Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour," it reads.

"From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’s history to the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend, only one thing is for sure: It’s not the story we think we know.”
