A new Game of Thrones spin-off is in the works, and it will tell the story of the fall of the House Targaryen, around 300 years before the original show’s timeline.

Back in July, HBO announced they are beginning to work on the first prequel to Game of Thrones, which will be titled either The Long Night or Bloodmoon. It will unravel the story of White Talkers and the world of Westeros hundreds of years before the Golden Age of Heroes, when the Children of the Forest lived in it.

Many fans were disappointed that no Targaryens or Lannisters will appear in this prequel, but there’s good news – there will be another spin-off show that will focus on the House Targaryen of Dragonstone.

The details are still unknown as the authors of the show don’t want to reveal anything too soon.

George R. R. Martin, the author of the books on which Game of Thrones was based, wrote a blog post stating that there were “five different Game of Thrones successor shows in development at HBO, and three of them are still moving forward nicely,” as Deadline reports.

“Two other shows remain in the script stage, but are edging closer. What are they about? I cannot say,” he wrote.
