Viewers are now left with only two seasons of Game of Thrones. And, just in case you?re now thinking that you don?t know what to do with your life anymore after the series ends, be comforted with the fact that HBO seems to be planning a Game of Thrones prequel series.
HBO teased fans saying they are in ?preliminary talks? with Game Of Thrones creator George R.R Martin. This is in relation to making a prequel of the beloved series.
The network?s programming president Casey Bloys recently revealed that they are exploring some areas in Westeros’ sprawling history. Bloys said a Game of Thrones spin-off is very much a possibility.
Bloys also hinted that there may be more than the reported six episodes in the final series, according to Yahoo. He said, ?I?ll take as much as we can get.?
Meanwhile, Game of Thrones cast members Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage, among others, were spotted in the Basque Country a few weeks ago. The filming for the last season of GoT is expected to wrap up in February 2017.
