HBO’s Game of Thrones prequel series is set to begin filming in June, and we now know it will be shooting under the working title Bloodmoon.

The show doesn’t have an official title yet, though it’s often unofficially referred to as The Long Night since it’s set during that period of Game of Thrones history – about 8,000 years before the War of the Five Kings.

White Walkers and the darkest hour

The one confirmed prequel is set thousands of years before the original series.

The series will show the world plunge into its darkest hour after the Age of Heroes ended long ago.

The Age of Heroes refers to the period of time when the Children of the Forest made a pact with the First Men, which brought about peace. And the “darkest hour” is a reference to The Long Night, which is when the White Walkers first descended on the world, disturbing that peace and bringing the savage winter that lasted for years.

The show will explore the origins of the White Walkers, the mysteries of Essos and the legends of the early Stark family.

The prequel takes place when Bran the Builder, the Stark ancestor who built both Winterfell and the Wall, was alive.

And with Lann the Clever who founded House Lannister also around during this time there’s a chance we’ll get some background to the famous rivalry.

Who’s in it?

As the events take place thousands of years before the original series we won’t see any familiar faces.

As far as we know, Naomi Watts was cast in a lead role for the prequel series and plays a charismatic socialite with a dark secret.

Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Georgie Henley, Alex Sharp and Toby Regbo round out the cast for the pilot.

Will there be any dragons?

Sorry – no.

“You’re looking at a whole different era of Westeros,” George RR Martin told the Hollywood Reporter last month. “No dragons, no Iron Throne, no King’s Landing.”

Creators

Jane Goldman will serve as showrunner and co-created the series with Martin, and S.J. Clarkson will direct the pilot and executive produce.

Release date

It looks like we won’t see the show until at least next year, although filming has already started in Belfast.

HBO’s Casey Bloys told The Hollywood Reporter “there’s no timetable”, adding: “If we do a pilot and series, nothing is going to air on HBO until at least a year after the final season.”

So that means May 2020 at the earliest.
