HBO has announced that Game of Thrones could be getting a prequel series, one of five potential spinoffs of the series.

Author George RR Martin created the new series alongside screenwriter Jane Goldman.

The channel has ordered a pilot episode for the show, set thousands of years before the battles over the Iron Throne.

HBO executives say any spinoff will not be broadcast until after Game of Thrones‘ final season in 2019.

The channel said in statement if picked up, the prequel will chronicle “the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour”.

“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.”

British author Jane Goldman, who wrote Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and the Kingsman films, will serve as a showrunner for the as-yet-unnamed show.

Game of Thrones is HBO’s most popular series to date. It has won multiple Emmy awards and drawn tens of millions of viewers worldwide.


Ed Sheeran will make a cameo appearance in the seventh series of Game of Thrones, the show producers have confirmed.

Speaking at the SXSW film festival in Texas, David Benioff and Dan Weiss said they had been trying to book Ed Sheeran for a while.

Ed Sheeran also confirmed the news as reports started to appear online by tweeting “guess the cat’s out the bag”.

It is not clear what role the singer will have in the show.

The panel at SXSW also featured stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams.

It was suggested that the Ed Sheeran booking was made as a surprise for Maisie because she is a big fan of the singer.

Ed Sheeran is not the first musician to appear in Game of Thrones.

Previous musical cameos have included members of Coldplay, Mastodon, Of Monsters and Men, and Sigur Ros.

There is no confirmation if  Ed Sheeran will be performing, like Sigur Ros and Of Monsters and Men, or if he will even be recognizable on screen.

When Mastadon appeared in the show they were transformed into zombified members of the Wildlings group.

David Benioff and Dan Weiss also confirmed the eighth and final season of the show will only contain six episodes, making it the shortest yet.
