Game Of Thrones Prequel Series About House Targaryen May Be Getting Green LitHBO

With the death of one Game of Thrones story, two more rise in its place.

As the first images of the prequel series Bloodmoon are shared online, another Game of Thrones spin-off series seems to be getting ever nearer too.

What with Daenarys quick descent into madness in the final season, and her unconventional relationship with her nephew Jon Snow, its no wonder people want to see more of the family tree that is Targaryen. And it seems the family might be getting their own series.

It ended (spoiler alert!) with the death of both rivals, and the crowning of Rhaenyras son, Aegon III.

Writer of the epic books, George R.R. Martin, is on board as executive producer, who was reportedly very happy with this particular spin-off.

Earlier this year, the author released Fire and Blood, a 150-year-spanning history of House Targaryen. So it seems theres plenty of source material for the TV series.
