Although the Season 7 of Game of Thrones is still to be aired in summer 2017, a possible prequel is already being discussed. HBO President Casey Bloys shared some detail on November 14 in an interview with The Wrap.
“We’ve talked very, very kind of high-level, like, ‘Oh, that would be interesting, a prequel would be interesting, are there areas that make more sense?” he said. However, no one has put the ideas yet onto paper.
Bloys noted that it would be crazy if this idea would not be explored.
“So we are thinking about it, talking about it, but nothing really of note to report just yet,” he continued.
With the vast history of Westeros, the executives are surely having a hard time in deciding at what exact point of time they should focus if they push through with the prequel. No characters were revealed for the possible first-ever HBO prequel.
“I would say it’s still kind of preliminary ongoing talk. There are areas we are exploring, but I wouldn’t point to any one and say, ‘This is what we’re going to do.’”
As to the number of episodes we might be expecting, Bloys said they would take as much as they can get.
The Emmy-winning series has two remaining seasons before they close… Winter has been coming for 6 seasons. Maybe it will actually come in the final 2.
