A premiere date has yet to be announced, but the series will return in 2019.
CNN reported in June that HBO had ordered a pilot for a potential “Game of Thrones” spinoff. The prequel, according to HBO, will take place thousands of years before the events of “Game of Thrones” and “chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.”
With every end, there is a new beginning.
