If you think that you have had enough of The Game of Thrones, well, you are absolutely wrong. The world of the seven kingdoms is not done with you yet. Targaryen Queen is, apparently, dead but her ancestors are coming to life in the upcoming HBO Game of Thrones Prequel.
George R.R. Martin is currently involved in four GOT spin-offs. The Untitled Game of Thrones Prequel is in the production phase while the Untitled Bryan Cogman/Game of Thrones Spin-Off, Untitled Carly Wray/Game of Thrones Spin-Off and Untitled Max Borenstein/Game of Thrones Spin-Off have already been announced.
David Benioff is the executive producer for all three spin-offs but he is not on the credit list of the prequel series that is being filmed. Being the executive producer of all 73 episodes, Benioff has been the spine for GOT. It is a surprise that he is not involved in the prequel. No casting details have been revealed yet. There are rumors that Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse are on board for the prequel.
All prequel series are placed way back in time from the events of GOT. Untitled Game of Thrones Prequel takes us three hundred years back to a kingdom ruled by Targaryen Kings while other spin-offs thousand years or more.
Targaryen dynasty had been at the center stage of GOT. It seems that the coming series will also showcase the wars, politics and intrigues of Targaryen kings and queens. This time we would get more of the Dragons than we previously did.
The way the story concluded in GOT had disappointed a majority of fans. It looked abrupt for a TV show that spanned over 8 seasons to have just 6 episodes in the last. The story was jumping to reach the end rather than allowing events the breathing space to take place. The fate of Dragon Queen (Daenerys Targaryen) and Jon Snow (Aegon Targaren) could have been dramatically acceptable had their characters were given two or three more episodes to show their psychological and emotional dilemmas in detail.
With IMDB rating dropping down from 9.5 to 9.4, the fans do not seem eager to wait for the Game of Thrones Prequel as their interest level has died down with season 8. But, if the creators of GOT could match the standards initially set, the coming series will hook the audiences again to their screens.
