As Game of Thrones comes to a close with its seventh season, HBO let slip their plans for a possible prequel.
With the smash hit series becoming one of HBO's most successful shows, it's hardly surprising that the network is keen to keep milking the cash cow. Yet while talks initially focused on a spin-off, while talking to The Wrap, HBO head Casey Bloys hinted at the possibility of a prequel.
"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?' But we haven't--no one has put pen to paper--yet," Bloys said. "It's still pretty early on."
"It's such a great world and it's such a great property, we'd be crazy not to at least explore the idea of some sort of prequel or whatever you want to call it," he went on to say. "So, we are thinking about it, talking about it, but nothing really of note to report just yet."
With plenty of stories in Westeros still to tell, we certainly wouldn't be complaining.
Game of Thrones returns to TV screens in summer 2017.
