Game of Thrones fans might be getting another glimpse of Westeros, as a second prequel is reportedly in early development at HBO.
The network is thought to be developing a prequel based on author George RR Martin’s series Tales of Dunk and Egg.
The novellas are set in the same world as A Song Of Ice and Fire, the series Game Of Thrones was based on, with the events taking place about 90 years beforehand.
They follow Dunk, Ser Duncan the Tall, the future Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, and Egg, the future king Aegon V Targaryen.
Three novels in the series have been published so far.

If it makes it to series, it’ll be the second GOT prequel to air, after House of the Dragon, which begins production this year.
The highly-anticipated new series, which is set to star Doctor Who’s Matt Smith, will focus on the Targaryen family centuries before the beloved HBO fantasy drama and it will feature Paddy Considine as King Viserys I.

According to Game Of Thrones mythology, the Targaryen clan are one of the former Royal houses who ruled an empire and united the Seven Kingdoms.
Often followed by three dragons, their family declaration is ‘fire and blood’ – and they often left both in their wake as they attempted to take over the kingdoms and eventually the walls outside Westeros.
House Of The Dragon will be adapted from the events in author George RR Martin’s book Fire and Blood, which ends with a massive battle nicknamed The Dance of the Dragons.
