George R. R. Martin this prequel announced back in May. The rumours were doing the rounds from past September that Bryan Cogman, veteran producer of HBO's Game of Thrones, is already working on the fifth prequel series. Since all the five projects were kept super-confidential as GOT crew is famously known for, here are the few details all the fans should know and will keep you updated when anything new comes along.

All the things you should know about the prequel of Game of Thrones:
1. George R. R. Martin got a development deal with HBO
George R. R. Martin is neck deep on wrapping up his novel series “A Song of Ice and Fire”. In the midst of all this, when he was offered to create the storyline and novel for the prequel too, he got a development deal at HBO.
2. Theme/setup of the prequel
The story of this show will take you thousands of years before the “Song of Ice and Fire” timeframe. According to the makers of the show it will “chronicle the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.”
3. A pilot episode already ordered for the prequel
HBO has already ordered a pilot for a GoT prequel and they promises the audience that it will be completely different from the “Game of Thrones” universe which no one is familiar with. It will show “the horrifying secrets of Westeros's history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend... it's not the story we think we know.”
4. The show will not launch before 2020
Pilot episode doesn’t mean, it is going to get aired on HBO, it is more like a trial show for development purposes. Bloys stated the THR “If we do a pilot and series, nothing is going to air on HBO until at least a year after the final season. We're not doing a final season and then, ‘Following it at 11 p.m. … ,’”.
5. HBO is budgeting over $50 million per season for this spinoff
Francesca Orsi, HBO’s senior VP of drama, revealed "$50 million (per season) would never fly for what we are trying to do. We are going big," to The Hollywood Reporter.
So, what! We all already know that HBO has officially confirmed 2019 will air ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8. So, you can wait for the spinoff show to come at 2020, right? Haven’t you yet learned the art of waiting with all these years GOT crew kept us waiting? Shame on you!
