Deadline reports the prequel series would be set 300 years before Game of Thrones and would track "the beginning of the end for House Targaryen". (Sidenote: Bloodmoon's pilot wrapped this summer, and we still don't know if that's been ordered to series.) George R.R. Martin is attached as an executive producer and Ryan Condol wrote the script, so if you felt burned by Benioff and Weiss' Game of Thrones conclusion, you don't immediately need to write this new show off. HBO is yet to confirm their involvement with the series. According to Entertainment Weekly, HBO is on the cusp of ordering yet another prequel to the epic eight-season series.

Another Game of Thrones prequel focusing on the Targaryen heritage might be in the works.

This is a new take on the universe that was being developed by GoT fave Bryan Cogman who confirmed earlier this year that the prequel he was working on has been scrapped.

The Conservative leader responded to this story, saying Trudeau should have waved the rule in order for the police to investigate. Green Party leader Elizabeth May and Jagmeet Singh, the leader of the left-wing New Democrat Party, started the day with rallies.

HBO has already produced another related pilot that takes place thousands of years before "Game of Thrones", starring Naomi Watts. "The one I am not supposed to call THE LONG NIGHT will be shooting later this year, and two other shows remain in the script stage, but are edging closer". "But maybe some of you should pick up a copy of "Fire & Blood" and come up with your own theories". (The second one is yet unpublished.) It starts with Aegon I Targaryen's conquest of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, then charts his reign, the lives of his sons Aenys I and Maegor I, the reign of Aenys's son Jaehaerys I, and the succession crisis following the death of his sons.

If that rings any bells for George RR Martin fans, that's because it's the setting of his latest book, a first of two volumes fictional history of House Targaryen.

We don't know exactly what this Targaryen prequel will be about, but Deadline's scoop alludes to the Dance of the Dragons, aka the Targaryen civil war that drove the dragons to extinction.
