In a case of “What is dead may never die”, HBO has apparently already started filming its first Game of Thrones prequel series.
After David Benioff and D.B. Weiss finally put down their swords and shields in Westeros and hand over the reins to someone else, Kingsman‘s Jane Goldman is looking at a completely different period of history.
According to The Sun, work is currently underway on Bloodmoon. Set 5,500 years before the events of Game of Thrones, Bloodmoon will chart the events of the Children of the Forest and presumably see the emergence of the White Walkers.
The site reports: “Those working on the set in Belfast are referring to the series as Bloodmoon. Producers have put together a stellar cast and it will be must-watch telly for anyone who loves Game of Thrones.”
With Game of Thrones known for doing the bulk of its filming in Belfast, it’s no surprise the network is returning there for Bloodmoon.
