Game Of Thrones’ The Long Night prequel has been cancelled by HBO!

The Night King made his biggest move ever in 'The Dragon and the Wolf', and the fans are in shock!

We have some shocking news for Game Of Thrones fans as The Hollywood Reporter has shared some sad news about the Game Of Thrones prequel which was referred to as The Long Night by George R. R. Martin and fans. The latest report says that the much-awaited Game Of Thrones prequel has been cancelled by HBO.

HBO reveals schedule of airing Game of Thrones season 8 and filming of prequels

The prequel was set thousands of years before the events in the Game Of Thrones series happened and was going to show the rise of the White Walkers. The prequel by showrunner Jane Goldman, which had some big names like Naomi Watts and Miranda Richardson had already filmed the pilot episode and was awaiting the green signal from HBO. This shocking news comes just weeks after it was reported that a second Game Of Thrones prequel about the Targaryens was close to getting a pilot. The second prequel being developed by Ryan Condol with George R. R. Martin and is based on GRRM’s book, Fire & Blood.

So far HBO hasn’t given any explanation regarding why they cancelled the prequel by Jane Goldman but we will surely get some updates about it in the coming days. THR mentions that Goldman has already shared the news with the cast. The fact that HBO was working on a second prequel must mean that they weren’t happy with the way the first prequel was moving ahead but at this time we can just speculate. Just to get an idea about what we are going to miss, here’s the synopsis of the first pilot:

“Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.”And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.”

Fresh leaks from the set of House of The Dragon show Targaryen camps being constructed on Holywell Beach

Fresh leaks from the set of House of The Dragon show Targaryen camps being constructed on Holywell Beach

The production for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving rather swiftly, and we might see George R. R. Martin’s prediction about the series’ release come to fruition. Various cast and crew members have been spotted by locals and reporters quite recently, despite HBO’s best efforts to keep the filming under the veil. The cast and the crew have returned to Holywell beach, but this time, the scale of production seems to be much more massive. After recent leaks showed the crew tidying up the location for filming a rumoured battle sequence, more pictures emerged showing a Targaryen camp under construction.

The photos of the set came along with the leaks involving Daemon Targaryen, hence pointing at a connection between the two. This might be a battle camp or a camp for a tourney erected for the Targaryen prince. We also see a knight in armour in action, swinging his sword in fury. Things are getting really interesting folks!

Looking at recent leaks, we can theorize that the crew of House of The Dragon is preparing for the Tourney held at Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon’s wedding ceremony. Why? Recent leaks have shown glimpses of a young Rhaenyra Targaryen with Laenor Velaryon, a battle-ready Daemon Targaryen and now a Targaryen camp.

What are your thoughts about the theory? Talk to us in the comments below!

Behold the first look at Daemon Targaryen’s fabled family heirloom, the Valyrian Steel sword Dark Sister in her full glory!

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is one of the high priority projects at HBO currently. The production is moving swiftly despite hitting some minor obstacles along the way, as indicated by the regular leaks occurring all over the internet. Recently, some never-before-seen photos from the set were leaked by locals, and for the first time, we have an idea of what Matt Smith’s Daemon Targaryen will look like in Targaryen battle gear.

We can see in some of the pictures the crew is helping Matt get into what looks like a black leather armour. A few knights and soldiers in full body armour can be seen walking near him in another photo.

In one of the photos, Matt Smith, who’s playing Daemon Targaryen on the show, can be seen walking on the beach, his platinum blonde wig blowing in the wind as he rests one of his hands on his sword.

It looks like Daemon Targaryen is gearing up for a battle or a tourney. We couldn’t spot any dragon props or 3-D motion capture devices in the photos, so it strongly suggests they are preparing for a tourney. Depending on the timeline, we are looking at a few contenders, tourney held at King Viserys I’s ascension to the throne, tourney held on the fifth anniversary of King Viserys I and Queen Alicent’s marriage and the most plausible one being the tourney at King’s Landing for the wedding of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Ser Laenor Velaryon.

The last one seems the most obvious explanation as recent leaks of a young Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon were circulating recently in media. What do you think? Tell us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones is one of the most decorated series in television history. The highly acclaimed series still holds the record for the most number of Emmy Awards won to date. The show’s cast is still winning heaps of praise and awards, showcasing their amazing talent. Actress Hannah Waddingham, who played the famous ‘shame’ nun Septa Unella, recently won her first Emmy Award for her role in Ted Lasso.

Hannah Waddingham was named outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series during the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday night for her role as Rebecca Welton on the beloved Apple+ series Ted Lasso.

The actress was tearing up as she got to the stage to accept her award and excitedly shouted out multiple times, underscoring how important the moment was to her. She got especially emotional as she thanked the show’s creator and star, Jason Sudeikis.

Jason, you’ve changed my life with this and more importantly my baby girl’s. Honestly, I’m so privileged to work with you,” Waddingham, 47, said while accepting the award.

The actress also gave a sweet tribute to her parents and all the people in her life who help her.

This single mum wouldn’t be standing here without you,” she said, before pointing the spotlight at her fellow British stage performers: “West End musical performers need to be on screen more. Please give them a chance cause we won’t let you down.”
