After months of speculation and rumors, HBO has finally officially confirmed that it is working on a prequel to Game of Thrones. The new series will feature George R. R. Martin as executive producer and Jane Goldman, as a screenwriter and executive producer.

This will be your synopsis:

“Set thousands of years before the events narrated in Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the descent of the world from the golden Age of Heroes to its darkest hour, and only one thing is certain: from the horrifying secrets of the history of Poniente until the truth origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of East to the Starks of the legend … it is not the history that we think that we know “.

In the world history of Game of Thrones, the Age of Heroes is the time when legendary figures like Bran the builder were alive. According to The Song of Ice and Fire wiki:

The Age of Heroes was a time in the history of Westeros that takes its name from the great men and women who lived in the years of peace that followed the forging of the Covenant between the First Men and the children of the forest. Many noble houses have their origin in that era, and many stories, songs and legends are told about it. It is an age that is shrouded in mystery, with more myths than facts known about it. There are many stories from the Age of the Herores, too many to be told. These stories were not recorded in books, but were passed on from generation to generation through stories and songs. While some of them may be discarded to be or look like fairy tales, each of the Seven Kingdoms is defined by them.

Of course, as with everything surrounding Game of Thrones, there has been much speculation about what part of Westeros history could be used to be told in a prequel. Martin himself has wanted to put an end to the rumors that it will be based on his previous works. As Martin said of his Dunk & Egg stories, which take place 90 years before the events narrated in Game of Thrones:

“I’ve only written and published three novels to date, and there are at least seven or eight or ten more that I want to write in. We all know how slow I am and how fast a television series is going, I do not want to repeat what happened with Game of thrones, where the series is ahead of the books “.

The writer also confirmed that he will not discuss Robert’s Rebellion, the war that took place immediately before the Game of Thrones events.

“When I finish writing Song of Ice and Fire, you’ll all know all the important things that happened in Robert’s Rebellion,” Martin said last year. “There will be no surprises or revelations in the new series, only the consequences of conflicts that everyone already knows.”

Details of the date on which the prequel will be released are still unknown, but Casey Bloys, president of HBO programming, said that it will be some time between the end of Game of Thrones and the start of the new spin-off.

“We are not considering any scenario in which at least one year passes after the end of the original series,” he told Deadline. “I want the last season of Game of Thrones to be the last season of Game of Thrones, I do not want to use it to launch something else, I want it to be the end of the best series of all time, and I do not want anything to interfere with that” .
