”The Game of Thrones” spin-off is going to start filming in Belfast in October. The series will take place thousands of years before the events of ”Game of Thrones” and has a working title of “The Long Night”.
Writing in a blog post in June, George RR Martin added, “None of the characters or actors from Game of Thrones will appear in the new show. All of the successor shows we’ve been developing have been prequels, as I have mentioned before. This one really puts the pre in prequel, since it is set not ninety years before Game of Thrones (like Dunk & Egg), or a few hundred years, but rather ten thousand years (well, assuming the oral histories of the First Men are accurate, but there are maesters at the Citadel who insist it has only been half that long). We’re very early in the process, of course, with the pilot order just in.”
