‘Game of Thrones’: HBO Releases Statement On Canceled Prequel Series

HBO has released a statement on the recent decision to not move forward on the Game of Thrones prequel series starring Naomi Watts.

Earlier this week, HBO announced that the pilot for the untitled Game of Thrones prequel series would not be granted a series order. Showrunner and writer Jane Goldman reportedly emailed cast and crew on HBO’s decision to not bring one of the numerous Game of Thrones spinoffs to a series order.

You can read HBO’s statement down below:

“After careful consideration, we have decided not to move forward to series with the untitled Game of Thrones prequel. We thank Jane Goldman, S.J. Clarkson, and the talented cast and crew for all of their hard work and dedication.”

Details on the Game of Thrones prequel are still under wraps, though the series was said to be set roughly 5,000 years before the events of George R. R. Martin’s original story. Naomi Watts’ character was described to be a “charismatic socialite with a dark secret.”

Directed and executive produced by S. J. Clarkson,  the pilot featured an ensemble cast that included Naomi Watts, Josh Whitehouse, Toby Regbo, Ivanno Jeremiah, Georgie Henley, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Alex Sharp, Miranda Richardson, Marquis Rodriguez, John Simm, Richard McCabe, John Heffernan, and Dixie Egerickx.

Although this untitled Game of Thrones prequel will not be ordered to series, HBO has given a series order to House of the Dragon, which will explore the origins of the infamous House Targaryen.
