HBO’s Song of Ice and Fire has come and gone – but this story is far from over.
On the one hand, series creator and all-around Thrones expert George R.R. Martin is still in the process of penning his final two installments, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. While at HBO towers, plans are in place for a Game of Thrones prequel series featuring such A-list stars as Naomi Watts (a Lannister, perhaps?), Josh Whitehouse, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Georgie Henley, Alex Sharp, and Toby Regbo.
Said to be codenamed ‘Blood Moon,’ the good folks over at the Watchers on the Wall have unearthed what seems to be the early (or indeed final?) logo for HBO’s Game of Thrones prequel, a story which begins 10,000 years in the past – so forget about your favorite cast members swinging by for an appearance.

As WOTW correctly points out, this sigil closely resembles that of House Martell, though the fact that HBO has hinted at an ancient, almost prehistoric setting would effectively rule out the Martells – at least those that we knew. There’s every chance that this prequel will harken back to the old powers of Westeros, back when the biggest dynasties (think Lannister, Stark, Targaryen) vied for absolute supremacy.
Either way, it’ll no doubt contain fantasy-fuelled drama with a hint of political meddling, which leaves us with just one question: where do we sign up?
HBO’s starry prequel series, which is now operating under the working title of ‘Blood Moon,’ is currently making headway in Belfast, Northern Ireland – the unofficial home to Game of Thrones – and we’ll be keeping a close eye on this project as it falls into place.
