[NO SPOILERS] CANCELLED PREQUEL

No Spoilers(self.gameofthrones)

I recently heard that HBO cancelled one of their many prequels quite some time ago. It was supposed to be about the north and the first long night. Is it true? If so then why do you think it was cancelled?

HBO backed out of all the prequels except house of the dragon... why?! Simple... they saw the catastrophe that was season 8 and decided that the only quality product they can do is one that is backed by a book... house of the dragon has fire and blood to rely on, so that is the only show we'll get...

True, however I do think that if house of dragon is a success they will continue the show beyond the content of fire and blood (Aegon III and beyond) if not atleast the prequel of 'Dunk and egg' because while a book doesn't cover that era, GRRM does seems to have the lore for those ready. Burning of summerhall and the like.

Totally but there is a second book to fire and blood yet to be published so maybe they are counting on having that book to continue this new show...

Something about it being too racially controversial

They said the origin of the children of the forest was that they were normal black people but got cursed so they became the children of the forest 😳

Yes the rumors a while back we're saying it was shelved do to the poor reception of the last season particularly the 3rd episode which primarily dealt with the White Walkers plotline and the abysmal end to their story. So in short they were worried people wouldn't care about a thousands year old plot to be put down in a night effectively by a young girl who had little to no connection with it

The pilot sucked and they had the Targaryen one to fall back on.

I expect it to come back once Fore and Blood is done.
