HBO Announces ‘Game Of Thrones’ Prequel Series ‘A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    There's going to be another "Game of Thrones" spinoff coming to television.

    Warner Bros. Discovery made an announcement confirming the prequel during a media event on Wednesday. This prequel, currently called "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight," is based on George R.R. Martin's "Dunk and Egg" books.

    The newly merged company also announced that the combined HBO Max and Discovery+ streaming service would be known as Max going forward, per Variety.

    This newest spinoff will follow the story of Ser Duncan the Tall (Dunk) and a young Aegon V Targaryen (Egg), which takes place 90 years before the events of "A Song of Ice and Fire," which is the series that provided the storyline for "Game of Thrones."

    The official project logline says: "A century before the events of 'Game of Thrones,' two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros ... a young, naïve but courageous knight, Ser Duncan the Tall, and his diminutive squire, Egg. Set in an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living memory, great destinies, powerful foes, and dangerous exploits all await these improbable and incomparable friends."

    The publication noted that Martin would serve as writer and executive producer. Ira Parker, who was a co-executive producer on Season 1 of "House of the Dragon," is also part of the project.

    "Game of Thrones" and "House of the Dragon" alums Ryan Condal and Vince Gerardis will be executive producers on the new prequel series.

    This is one of many "Game of Thrones" spinoffs currently in the works, but the only one besides "House of the Dragon" that's been confirmed. "HOTD" launched in August 2022 and was renewed for a second season, which is currently in production.

    In 2021, HBO and HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys said future "Game of Thrones" spinoff shows would be decided based on which stories had the strongest content.

    "Obviously, we know George has this incredible world with all of this really rich and complicated history and all of these characters," Bloys told TVLine at the time. "So we've been trying to be thoughtful about what are the stories that are worth telling. What would be exciting? What would fans love?" he said. "Dunk and Egg is one of those, but not the only one."

    "We'll let the creative dictate where we end up," the network exec said.
