“What is dead may never die,” as they say in the Iron Islands and the halls of HBO. The network has picked up the pilot for an untitled prequel to “Game of Thrones,” created and written by Jane Goldman and George R.R. Martin.

This won’t be “Better Call Stannis,” though. The official description, as announced by HBO, is as follows:

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. 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.

The official credits for the pilot are: Story by Jane Goldman & George R.R. Martin, Teleplay by Jane Goldman. Goldman, Martin, Vince Gerardis, and Daniel Zelman will executive produce.

Count me in. I'm sold on it. Just hope it doesn't become too agenda driven.

Glad to hear it'll deal with stuff we have very little information on. And what info we do have was almost always assuredly and now confirmed to be unreliable.

true origin of the white walkers
George totally gave those guys the fake story

And if George is heavily involved with this we're never getting a completion to ASOIAF rip.

I want more representation from black walkers, this whole white superiority thing is not cool in 2018.

So the plot is white walkers are coming and some shit in the east with dothraki.

Didn't we just watch 7 seasons of this?

Pretty much what I was thinking.

I mean don't get me wrong I'm still gonna watch, but I would have preferred something about the Blackfyres or even something completely out of left field that didn't involved White Walkers and the Starks.

This is like what people say about wanting Star Wars movies that aren't based around the Skywalkers and Jedi and we end up with garbage like Solo with low box office numbers

Hopefully every time somebody says the word 'Snow' they mumble the word 'Jon' just before it

"Oh no, we'll never be able to get to (insert place) in all of this fucking Jon snow"

I'm kinda excited about this and worried at the same time because I like that so much of the ASOIAF world is currently a mystery. This will probably put an end to the mysteries

Maybe, but the Knight of the Seven Kingdom books pretty much show though that there is potential for Game of Thrones spinoffs without White Walkers and Starks.
