Dear Game of Thrones fans, you've probably already heard the VERY GOOD NEWS, but just in case you haven't, ahem...
Yes, our TV gods at HBO have given the green light to a pilot for a Game of Thrones prequel from the legend himself, George R. R. Martin and talented AF writer Jane Goldman.
Now, there aren't a heck of a lot of details available yet, but here's what we do know:
According to Deadline, the show will take place THOUSANDS (yes, thousands) of years before the events of Game of Thrones and has been described as “chronicling the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: 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…it’s not the story we think we know."
