April 13th, 2023 by Marc Comments

We’ve heard rumblings for a while now that another Game of Thrones spinoff was in the works and now we official word of what it is.

After the success of the first spinoff, House of the Dragon, HBO has moved forward and ordered a season of A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight.

HBO orders second season of Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon after just one episode

The series is based on creator George RR Martin’s Dunk and Egg novellas and takes place over one hundred years before the main Game of Thrones series and promises to be something very different than Game of Thrones or House of the Dragon as it will focus on Ser Duncan the Tall and his squire Egg, two unlikely heroes who travel around Westeros getting in adventures in a world full of magic, dragons and unexpected destinies. It really sounds like it could be a more fun look at the world of Westeros.

The series will be written by Martin himself, which is likely to have fans excited.

More as we get it; check out the teaser below:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
