George R.R. Martin Reveals Game Of Thrones Prequel’s Potential Title

HBO's upcoming Game of Thrones prequel has yet to be given an official title, but that's not stopping George R.R. Martin from trying to dub it himself. The author has referred in the past to the series as The Long Night, which the network has denied as being the name. In a recent chat with Entertainment Weekly, the writer revealed what he hopes to be the moniker for the show when all is said and done.

HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones prequel has yet to be given an official title, but that’s not stopping George R.R. Martin from trying to dub it himself. The author has referred in the past to the series as The Long Night, which the network has denied as being the name. In a recent chat with Entertainment Weekly, however, the writer revealed what he hopes to be the moniker for the show when all is said and done.

“I heard a suggestion that it could be called The Longest Night, which is a variant I wouldn’t mind,” he says. “That would be pretty good.”

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, but such a title would be a fitting representation of how many fans feel on Sunday nights now that the original series is over. The prequel has been filming under the production label of Blood Moon, though this could change before the episodes get to air. There’s been a logo circling the Internet with this exact name, too, but it’s unknown if it’ll end up being used.

The much-anticipated television event will star two-time Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts alongside 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. While none of their roles have been announced, it’s already been established that both Starks and White Walkers will appear onscreen. The show is also rumored to take place over ten thousand years prior to the events in the original series, though this has neither been confirmed nor denied by executives at the network.

Filming of the unnamed spinoff may be underway, but it’ll probably be a while before fans get to see the Game of Thrones prequel on their TVs. In the meantime, stay tuned for more news about the show and its ever-changing title.
