Fifth 'Game of Thrones' Prequel Show Being Developed By Writer Bryan Cogman

Fifth 'Game of Thrones' Prequel Show Being Developed By Writer Bryan Cogman

George R R Martin's book the Song of Ice and Fire which was later turned into Game of Thrones TV series has a rich background history and is as extensive as JRR Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. - EW is bringing you 50 scoops in 50 days, a daily dish on some of your favorite shows.

I think this can be narrowed down to the way "Game of Thrones" uses combat, and how that can convey the story at large. Martin previously mentioned the prequel on his LiveJournal months ago.

Alexa takes on a bigger role in Amazon's budget Fire HD 10
Alexa may have started as the assistant inside Echo smart speakers, but it's now all over Amazon's devices lineup. Amazon just announced the new Amazon Fire HD 10 (2017), which is now available for preorder online for $149.99.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Cogman is developing some sort of prequel concept for Game of Thrones, in addition to the four other ideas already being worked on. Some of his hours include season 7's intricately plotted "Stormborn", season 4's "The Laws of Gods and Men" (which featured Tyrion Lannister on trial) and season 3's "Kissed by Fire" (which included Jaime Lannister's bathtub confession to Brienne). The actors' performance may seem even more impressive now you know the work that went into it!

Outside of the circle of people working on the projects, there is nearly absolutely no information as to what the new series may entail, with details on when or where they will take place and what characters the shows will focus on being held by HBO as closely-guarded secrets. But with his experience, Cogman's prequel stands a good chance of being the lucky victor. These will not be about Robert's Rebellion, and they will not be from his Dunk & Egg stories, and they will not be about any current Game of Thrones characters, Martin confirmed.

Trump revives idea that Pentagon once nixed: Parading military gear in DC
The annual parade commemorates the 1789 storming of the Bastille prison, a major turning point in the French Revolution. He said he was impressed by the military parade in central Paris in July, when he was visiting the French capital.

None of the main cast of the series will be involved in these projects. Many people took to reading fan theories and old episodes to unravel the plot as they wait for the next season to air. The new season is set to begin filming in October and could likely run as late as August 2018.

The President of Programming (HBO), Casey Bloys confirmed in July previous year that "Game of Thrones" #Season 8 will be the final season.
