The first planned spin-off series «Game of thrones» was canceled by HBO, with no disclosure of the reasons, and not coming out of the pilot stage. This was reported by the publication Deadline.
A prequel to «the Long night» with the participation of Naomi watts under the authorship of producer and screenwriter Jane Goldman had to tell about events that happened «thousands of years before the original story» and «escape from Golden age heroes to the dark times.»
Earlier media reported many problems during the filming of the pilot episode. Something similar was observed when creating the pilot issue of the original tape, when HBO had to re-shoot about 90% of the episode.
Initially prequels HBO had five possible ideas, development of which began even before the end of the last season of the series. Three of them the author of the eponymous novels by George RR Martin called valid.
Thus, there still remains the premiere opportunity for the two projects. Earlier Deadline also said that the order for the pilot part of the other spin-offs have already been sent for processing. The series will be based on the book Martin’s «fire and blood», which appeared in print in 2018.
