Game Of Thrones may only have two seasons left until winter's end, but that doesn't mean the adventures in Westeros have to end with it!
HBO exec Casey Bloys has revealed the premium cable network is currently in talks to launch a prequel series to its Emmy-winning hit!

Speaking to The Wrap, the network's programming president said they were exploring ideas to make more of the bloody fantasy world come to life, explaining:
"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. It's still pretty early on."
Though we still have two more years until the show's conclusion, this isn't the first talk of a spinoff to the fantasy phenomenon.
Series author George R.R. Martin insisted there was "a whole world full of stories waiting to be told" in that f*cked up head of his — and even teased which of his works would be the best follow-up adaptation!

Of course, the real decision comes from HBO, but according to Bloys, they'd "be crazy not to" explore ALL the possibilities! He added:
"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. So, we are thinking about it, talking about it, but nothing really of note to report just yet… I would say it's still kind of preliminary ongoing talks. There are areas we are exploring, but I wouldn't point to any one and say, 'This is what we're going to do.'"
Seeing as what a critical and financial success GoT has become, it's hard to imagine the network won't be revisiting Westeros at some point in the future!
