With HBO in tentative development on plentiful shows set within the world of Game of Thrones, now comes word that one such show is going to be exploring the House of Targaryen.
Via The Hollywood Reporter, said series will take place 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones and will dig deep on the history of the Targaryen clan. The show will use George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood as inspiration – that 2018 book serving up looking back on several famed Targaryen tales.
It’s believed that HBO is close to signing a pilot deal for this Targaryen-driven series, with the idea to go in this direction reportedly coming from Bryan Cogman originally. Cogman has since departed the project in favour of working on Amazon’s upcoming Lords of the Rings series.
For this to-be-titled Targaryen offering, Martin himself will be on writing duties alongside Colony and Rampage’s Ryan Condal.
As alluded to, this is just one of several Game of Thrones spin-off shows in various stages of development. The spin-off leading the charge right now is the Naomi Watts-led show that centres on Westeros’ famed Age of Heroes – that series having already wrapped production on its pilot episode.
Expect more on all things Game of Thrones as we get it.
