Following news that HBO has decided to pass on Jane Goldman’s Game of Thrones prequel series starring Naomi Watts, the network has confirmed the news via this statement.

“After careful consideration, we have decided not to move forward to series with the Untitled Game of Thrones prequel. We thank Jane Goldman, S.J. Clarkson, and the talented cast and crew for all of their hard work and dedication.”

George R.R. Martin also commented on the news on his blog.

“It goes without saying that I was saddened to hear the show would not be going to series. Jane Goldman is a terrific screenwriter, and I enjoyed brainstorming with her,” Martin said. “Heartbreaking as it is to work for years on a pilot, to pour your blood and sweat and tears into it, and have it come to nought, it’s not at all uncommon. I’ve been there myself, more than once. I know Jane and her team are feeling the disappointment just now, and they have all my sympathy… with my thanks for all their hard work, and my good wishes for whatever they do next.”

HBO will be moving forward with the House of the Dragon prequel series which will be set 300 years before the events of the original Game of Thrones series and focus on House Targaryen. The series will be based on Martin’s “Fire & Blood” book which looks at the history of the Targaryens.
