On May 4th, 2017, HBO announced that it had ordered pilot scripts for five separate prequel projects to succeed "Game of Thrones". HBO has said that, due to the massive logistics involved, it will probably only pick one of these pitches to go into full production. On June 8th, 2018 HBO announced it had green lit Jane Goldman's script to go into pre-production, actors Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse were cast and the pilot movie will likely be shown as soon as 2020 and if all goes well a likely pick-up for a full season TV series.

Tentatively titled, The Long Night it cryptically promises a tale set "... 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’ 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.”

"A Song of Ice and Fire" novelist, George R.R. Martin  speculatively predicts “... we could possibly see two or even three make it to the pilot stage, with one series emerging on air in 2019 or 2020.” Although, that’s his best guess, he stresses that no one knows for sure.

Which of the remaining four writers (and their secretive pitches) would be your first choice to be next in line for another "Game of Thrones" prequel TV series or even a spin-off "Game of Thrones" feature film?

SPOILER ALERT: Intended for viewers who want to know about the upcoming Game of Thrones (2011) prequel TV series as poll reveals rumored pilot details known as of the end of calendar 2018.

I opt for no other
Game of Thrones prequels, but The Long Night.
Game of Thrones (2011) is great, but the series complexity pushes the limits of what my mind and body can handle. I imagine The Long Night will be similarly consuming and challenging. I love "Games of Thrones", but don't think I can manage more than one spin-off at a time and need the year-long hiatus between seasons to recover.

I am somewhat amazed at how tight a lid HBO has been able to keep on these five prequels. What few details are out there seem to be almost entirely made of the ones they have chosen to make public. ‘Game of Thrones’  Prequel Adds 8 to Cast of The Long Night.(2020)

‘Game of Thrones’ Targaryen Prequel Series in the Works at HBO

Fans might not have seen the final dragon soaring over Westeros.

HBO is nearing a pilot commitment for a prequel series based on the “Game of Thrones” companion book “Fire & Blood,” sources have confirmed to Variety. The book tells stories of previous Targaryen kings, like Aegon the Conqueror, the first ruler of Westeros, and Aegon the Dragonbane, all of whom are ancestors of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) who appear in the recently finished mega-hit series.

The prospective pilot hails from Martin and “Colony” co-creator and executive producer Ryan Condal, and would be set 300 years before

The WrapHBO has ordered “Game of Thrones” prequel series “House of the Dragon” straight to series, HBO programming president Casey Bloys announced during WarnerMedia’s media event Tuesday.

Co-created by George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal, the 10-episode spinoff is set in the early days of Westeros and focused on House Targaryen. “House of the Dragon” is based on Martin’s “Fire & Blood” book, and takes place 300 years before the events of “Game of Thrones.”

Condal and Miguel Sapochnik, who directed several fan-favorite episodes of the original “Game of Thrones,” will serve as co-showrunners on the series and executive produce along with Martin and Vince Gerardis.

Sapochnik will also direct the pilot and additional episodes.

“The ‘Game of Thrones’ universe is so rich with stories,” Bloys said. “We look forward to exploring the origins of House Targaryen and the earlier days of Westeros along with Miguel, Ryan and George.”

reworked "Game of Thrones" Original Prequel Pitch Face-Off suggestion

On 30 October 2019, HBO announced a straight to series 10-episode order for House of the Dragon. The Ryan J. Condal and George R.R. Martin co-created prequel series is the story of House Targaryen set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones (2011). The series seemingly will be the follow-up "Games of Thrones" which concluded a near decade run on 19 May 2019.

The announcement was in the wake completion of an unaired pilot for another potential "Games of Thrones" series, Unaired Game of Thrones Prequel Pilot (2019) starring Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse. The Jane Goldman created prequel had been announced as the next successor to "Game of Thrones" on 08 June 2018, but was "officially" cancelled on 29 October 2019.

Originally, on 04 May 2017, HBO announced that it had ordered pilot scripts for five separate prequel projects to succeed "Games of Thrones". HBO has said that, due to the massive logistics involved, it will probably only pick one of these pitches to go into full production.

Which of the five writers (and their secretive pitches) would you have most like to see revived and become a reality as a "Game of Thrones" prequel TV series or even a spin-off "Game of Thrones" feature film?
