Game of Thrones has reportedly cancelled the untitled prequel featuring Naomi Watts, Miranda Richardson, Joshua Whitehouse, and Marquis Rodrigez. The prequel was set to focus on the “Age of Heroes”, thousands of years before the events of GoT and the first-ever battle between the First Men and the White Walkers. According to international media reports, the pilot of the untitled prequel was shot, however, Jane Goldman e-mailed the cast to share the news of the cancellation of the project.
HBO's logline added: "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." Now, it is a story that will not be told.
HBO has announced a Game Of Thrones prequel titled House Of The Dragon. The series will be based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire and Blood. This prequel is different from the one that was announced previously. The story of the series House Of The Dragon is set 300 years prior to the events of Game Of Thrones. As the name suggests, the series will tell the story of House Targaryen. House Of The Dragon will act as a spin-off to Game Of Thrones. There is no information regarding the release date of House Of The Dragon but there’s a catch. The series has been sanctioned with 10 episodes. It was reported that the series will premiere and first air on HBO Max, which is set to launch in May 2020 in the US. HBO posted this official picture of the series.

Fire and Blood is among the first two volumes of the history of House Targaryen. The second volume is yet to be released. The novel involves Targaryens and tells the appalling tale of Aegon I and his conquest of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. Targaryen succession is also one of the imperative parts of the story.
