"Game of Thrones" fans who are dreading the end of the popular TV series can relax a bit. It seems that season 8 that will air in 2019 is not the end of "The Song of Ice and Fire," for television viewers. Entertainment Tonight revealed that HBO has ordered a new prequel.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jane Goldman and George R.R. Martin will partner on the prequel that is expected to explore the time thousands of years before our current storyline in the "Game of Thrones" series. Jane Goldman will be the showrunner, ET notes, and according to the logline of the show, "chronicles the world’s descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour."

Prequel to 'Game of Thrones' logline

While we may think that season 8 will bring us the end of our information about fan favorites like the Lannisters and the Starks, there will probably be those family lines included.

Hollywood Reporter says, "The logline almost certainly refers to a fabled moment that every man, woman and child in Westeros knows about all too well: the Long Night and the War for the Dawn."

They are hopeful that the prequel could last long enough for 'Got' fans to see the Wall that keeps the Whitewalkers out of Westeros, rise. They reason that Bran the Builder was a "notable" character from the Age of Heroes.

ScoopWhoop points out that the current series has been giving us narrative from the past through visions and "unreliable narrators," so it's likely that the prequel will now come alive for us, thereby making all the main characters of the current series more understandable.

'Game of Thrones' legends from the Age of Heroes

But The Hollywood reporter went deeper into the analysis of what the logline could mean. They talk about how the prequel could address Valyria, which is where the House of Targaryen had its roots. They agree that there probably won't be too much about the current Targaryens as they only really rose to power around three hundred years before our current Game of Thrones timeline.

But it will be interesting to possibly see some of the "great empire's rise."

They also theorize the potential of seeing something of the Stark's history as Lann the Clever was also in the Age of Heroes. He stole the Casterly Rock from the House of Casterly. As we simply don't know what was involved or how he did that, there is the possibility of this feat being explored.
