When these competing projects were first announced well over a year ago, even with creatives as impressive as Bryan Cogman and Brian Helgeland, we personally always had the best feeling about Jane Goldman offering her considerable writing talents to Westeros and in a series that she was personally developing with Martin.
In Martin's novels, the Age of Heroes is a period of history after the Dawn Age, in which the First Men crossed the land bridge into Westeros and came into contact with the illusive Children of the Forest, according to the fan-powered Game of Thrones Wiki.
Goldman will serve as the showrunner.
Meanwhile, HBO's president of programming, Casey Bloys, stated that the network's present focus is on the final season of GOT and they are in no rush to develop the prequel.
Martin's newest book, Fire & Blood, is due out this November.
As for the other successor shows... if you have been following along, you know that we started with four, and eventually went to five.
As he says, "Work on Winds of Winter continues, and remains my top priority". "More likely HBO will want to work the phrase "game of thrones" in there somewhere". Though they don't have a director, cast, or location yet, Martin does say that he has a title that he likes, that he doubts will end up being used - The Long Night.
HBO has ordered a pilot for an untitled prequel series, created by George R.R. Martin and Jane Goldman.
He also clarifies that none of the Game of Thrones characters will appear in it. We do have an entire world and tens of thousands of years of history to play with, after all.
George R.R. Martin has addressed the new Game of Thrones prequel that HBO just greenlit, revealing his hope for the show's title. "But this is television, so nothing is certain". It is ridiculous to think otherwise. "It's not as if I've never written for TV..."
