The same week that HBO cancelled ''Bloodmoon'', they immediately greenlit one of the other four pitch ideas: ''House of the Dragon'', which will be focused on the history that Martin wrote for ''Literature/FireAndBlood'' (apparently focusing on the second half, about the Dance of the Dragons). HBO ordered it for a full ten episode first season, without a pilot. ''House of the Dragon'' is being developed by Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik (director of some episodes of ''Game of Thrones''), and is tentatively aiming at a 2022 release.

In May 2017, two months before Season 7 aired, HBO announced that they were considering ''five'' different pitches for ''Game of Thrones'' prequels - but they didn't say what each idea was. In June 2018 HBO announced that it had ordered a series about the Long Night by Jane Goldman, which had the working title ''Bloodmoon''. This struck many as odd, given that Martin never wrote a prequel novella for such an early era thousands of years ago: semi-official fansite Westeros.org went so far as to say it was the worst possible idea for a prequel, based on working with Martin for the 2014 sourcebook they felt he would never have voluntarily picked it, and that it might have just been chosen by HBO to latch on to White Walker hype from the later ''Game of Thrones'' seasons. Nonetheless, the ''Bloodmoon'' pilot was shot in summer 2019...and as soon as HBO saw the rough-cut pilot in October 2019, the entire prequel was promptly cancelled. We don't know exactly what happened because HBO kept it under wraps, but rumors were swirling that it basically had all the problems that were anticipated when it was ordered: Martin never intended to set a story then so it had no narrative to draw on, world-building was incredibly difficult because it's 8,000 years removed from the original series, etc. leading to numerous "creative differences".

Whatever the case, the same week that HBO cancelled ''Bloodmoon'' (late October 2019), they immediately greenlit one of the other four pitch ideas: ''House of the Dragon'', which will be focused on the history that Martin wrote for ''Literature/FireAndBlood'' (apparently focusing on the second half, about the Dance of the Dragons). HBO ordered it for a full ten episode first season, without a pilot. In total contrast to ''Bloodmoon'', ''House of the Dragon'' has the ''most'' print material by wordcount to base a prequel on. ''House of the Dragon'' is being developed by Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik, and is tentatively aiming at a 2022 release.

As for the other pitch ideas, staff linguist David J. Peterson gave a podcast [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llwYVV92g7k interview]] two weeks after ''Bloodmoon'' was cancelled that shed some light on the subject. Peterson confirmed that the third prequel pitch was actually for a Doom of Valyria series set outside of Westeros, which he'd even been hired for, but it got put on hold when HBO picked ''Bloodmoon'' (there had been leaks about a year before that the third idea was a Valyria prequel). Moreover, Peterson said that he'd never even ''heard'' what the fourth and fifth pitches were, nor did anybody he worked with, which meant they probably never got past the initial pitch phase. This matches with what George R.R. Martin himself said by late summer 2019, that HBO had dropped two of the pitches but was still actively considering three (''Bloodmoon'' and two others, one of which was soon revealed to be ''House of the Dragon''). Of these three, ''Bloodmoon'' is now canceled, ''House of the Dragon'' is greenlit, and the Valyria prequel is in DevelopmentHell. That being said, ''Bloodmoon'' was picked by the old head of HBO, before they got bought by AT&T, who replaced a lot of HBO's top executive positions, so for all we know they might change their minds. Martin keeps hinting in his blog posts that AT&T might actually want to produce ''two'' prequels at the same time, to compete with all the other big streaming platform shows on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney+.
