Disgrace! Disgrace! Disgrace! Winter might have come and gone for a lot of Sport of Thrones followers, however hopes for one extremely anticipated prequel have frozen over for good. The untitled GOT spinoff, coined Bloodmoon by many and The Lengthy Night time by George R. R. Martin, has been cancelled regardless of a accomplished pilot and an all-star forged that included Naomi Watts (Mulholland Drive, King Kong), Miranda Richardson (The Hours, Sleepy Hole) and Josh Whitehouse (Poldark). The now extinct challenge, chronicling the creation of the White Walkers 1000’s of years earlier than the plot of Thrones, was to be run by Jane Goldman (X-Males: First Class, Kick-Ass) and govt produced by Martin himself. Whereas an official cause for the cancellation has not been launched, sources cite artistic variations between Goldman and HBO after quite a few pilot rewrites over the summer season. HBO appears to be stopping one other Season eight narrative fiasco in any respect prices.
The Previous Gods haven’t forgotten us, nonetheless. Whereas Bloodmoon has misplaced its place on the Iron Throne, a more moderen, bloodier, prequel has unfold its wings. Home of the Dragon, based mostly on Martin’s 2018 ebook “Hearth & Blood,” will concentrate on the rise and fall of the fiery Home Targaryen. The collection can have ten episodes; manufacturing and launch dates have but to be introduced.
