This news comes after almost a year of rumors of when the HBO show will start filming.
Not a lot is known about the prequel's story, which is officially described as: "Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour".
Game of Thrones' eighth and final season arrives on HBO in just months, and new details about the show's prequel series are now being released to tide fans over until their next trip to Westeros. Let us what you think in the comments!
Mickelson one back at Pebble Beach
American Jordan Spieth has not won a tournament since 2017 but the three-time major champion is feeling good. A 54-hole cut is made and the final round is played at Pebble Beach.
Daenerys and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) are also the only two characters who get to be in photos together right now, confirming that the, ahem, bond they established at the end of Season 7 remains intact. The first spin-off from the premium cabler is not expected to debut until one year after the final season of Game of Thrones airs. "Westeros is a very different place" he said. Her brother Jaime has left her alone in King's Landing to take part in the big battle against the White Walkers as he is seen in a costume similar to the ones in the North.
Jane Goldman will serve as showrunner for the series after developing the idea along with GoT writer, George R.R. Martin, with Jessica Jones director S.J. Clarkson directing the pilot.
Most interestingly, there's no David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the showrunners of Game of Thrones, at the helm.
Game Of Thrones season eight begins on 21 April on HBO and Sky Atlantic.
