“Game of Thrones” has been a runaway hit for HBO. If you’re a fan, you know winter is coming and the show will be over soon. So… the folks at HBO are trying to figure out how to keep it going, without keeping it going. So, they’re working on a prequel series! We’re not hating that at all! Apparently this is moving full speed ahead because they’ve already approached George R.R. Martin about a prequel. One exec said, “I would say it’s still kind of preliminary ongoing talks. There are areas we are exploring.”
Meantime, Season 7 of “Game of Thrones” isn’t back until next summer and will only be seven episodes.
