HBO Gives Green Light to Game of Thrones Prequel ‘Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight

On May 19, 2021, HBO officially announced that it had given the green light to a new prequel series to the popular TV show “Game of Thrones.” The series, titled “Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight,” is based on a series of novellas by George R.R. Martin, the author of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series on which “Game of Thrones” was based.

The new series will take place several decades before the events of “Game of Thrones” and will follow the adventures of a young knight named Dunk and his squire, Egg, as they travel across the Seven Kingdoms and become embroiled in the political intrigues of the time. The series is being produced by HBO in association with Martin’s production company, with Martin himself serving as an executive producer on the project.

The adaptation of “The Hedge Knight” has been in development for several years, but it was not until May 2021 that HBO officially gave the green light for the series to move forward. No cast or release date for the series have been announced yet, but fans of “Game of Thrones” are sure to be excited by the prospect of a new series set in the same world as the original show.

“Game of Thrones” premiered on HBO in 2011 and quickly became a cultural phenomenon, running for eight seasons and 73 episodes before concluding in 2019. The show was widely praised for its intricate plotlines, complex characters, and stunning visuals, and it won numerous awards over the course of its run.

While the new prequel series will not feature any of the original “Game of Thrones” characters, fans are likely to be drawn to the world-building and political intrigue that made the original series so successful. With the involvement of Martin himself and the backing of HBO, “Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight” has the potential to be another hit for the network.
