HBO Preparing second Game of Thrones prequel

This one's based on the Dance of Dragons (Targaryen Civil War, not the novel...).

And this one has dragons — lots of dragons.

The network is said to be close to deal for a project that’s based on the history of the Targaryens. EW hears the series would lead up to and eventually chronicle the house’s civil war — a.k.a the legendary Dance of the Dragons.

The project has been a strong contender for an eventual order since HBO commissioned five screenwriters to try their hand at different Game of Thrones prequel ideas back in 2017 in an unusual bake-off effort to replace its departing mega-hit series.

This pilot concept was particularly attractive to saga author George R.R. Martin, who is on board as executive producer. Earlier this year Martin published Fire and Blood, a history of House Targaryen that spans roughly 150 years. The book detailed events that would be covered in this prospective series and is serving as the basis for the show. Yet perfecting the pilot script — now written by Ryan Condal (Colony) — has taken a while, with multiple writers taking swings at it. There’s no title yet for the new series, but Game of Thrones: Fire and Blood would certainly fit.

The Dance of the Dragons was a massive civil war in the Seven Kingdoms held between two rival branches of House Targaryen. The war occurred roughly 200 years before the events in Game of Thrones.

Well a prequel about the Long Night was pretty much ruined by the main series, so the Dance makes the most sense. I wonder what the budget is looking like, though..

They've already finished the pilot for Bloodmoon, their long night prequel. HBO is evidently reviewing it now.

I'd watch the hell out of it personally, but I do think the anticlimactic end to the new Long Night left a bad taste in a lot of viewer's mouths.

I think their best bet was to go with the Dance of Dragons, Long Night, Blackfyre rebellion, Robert's Rebellion, Aegon's conquest or the Doom of Valyria.

I know the show hardly focuses on the fighting, but Robert's Rebellion would give them the best bang for their buck as far as legendary warriors go.

I guess I'll be curious to see how things things do. I know a ton of people are pretty much done with the whole thing after the way the main show ended.

I wonder if it will be awesome for the first six seasons and then badly cram four seasons worth of material into the last two seasons because everybody involved gets sick of working on it?

Sadly, there is precedent for that.

HBO ****ed up on this. They should have had the new show(s) filmed and ready to go as soon as the GoT series ended. A lot of people will have lost interest in the entire universe by then, and I think people are going to realize quickly that the lore is shallow and the stories will be shit like the last few seasons of GoT.

I wouldn't say the lore is shallow. Martin just released a 700-book about the stuff this series will be based on a year or two ago. That's evidently about as entertaining a read as the Silmarillion, but still...it exists.

As far as releasing it earlier as opposed to later, would people really have welcomed a new series after the way DnD ended GoT? And you've got to factor in the potential of fatigue, too, too much of something for too long a time. Nostalgia can develop pretty quickly, and GoT goes from being "that show that just ended that was great and then really ****ing sucked, do we really need this?" to "that show from a couple years ago that ended kinda bad, but everybody watched it, so maybe I shouldn't miss this".

Count me as one of those people. Two rushed final seasons killed my excitement for any prequels or other series set in the GoT world.
