A new “Game of Thrones” prequel is in development at HBO, according to a report today, bringing the number of “GoT” prequels in the works to five.
“EW can exclusively report that ‘Thrones’ co-executive producer Bryan Cogman is penning a drama series follow-up to the Emmy-winning blockbuster,” EW.com reports. “Cogman developed the project by working closely with author George R.R. Martin, who cryptically referenced the existence of an additional unconfirmed prequel on his blog months ago.”
The report notes that “Thrones” showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have declined to be involved with the prequels, while Martin is already working on the other four.
The report also notes that no details about any of the new “Thrones” projects have been released.
