“Game of Thrones” may officially be over now and we won’t see the characters we grew to love and/or hate on-screen again. However, fans may get a chance once again visit the world of Westeros, as at least one companion series for the show is already in production—but the restraint fans had to use sometimes while waiting for new seasons of “Thrones” may be something they need to exercise once again.

At least five different shows were being shopped by HBO at one point to serve as potential companion/spin-off shows for the popular epic, and one, which is reportedly tentatively titled as “Bloodmoon,” is already allegedly filming. However, the earliest the series could begin airing if it gets an official pickup may not be until sometime in 2020 at the earliest.

Back in 2017, HBO Programming President confirmed that while the scripts for five potential shows were being developed, any shows, if they were picked up, would not happen until after the final seasons of “Game of Thrones” aired. He strongly hinted at the time that the show’s final season wouldn’t air in 2018, but 2019 instead (which was proven to be a correct assessment), meaning that the newer shows wouldn’t likely be given proper attention until after then.

Of course, since then, production has continued to develop on the series that is currently in production. That show, tentatively titled “Bloodmoon,” has already begun filming in Belfast in recent weeks. While not too much is known about the series, actress Naomi Watts is attached to the project, and it is expected to deal with the story of the Children of the Forest and is set five thousand years before the events of the current series’ timeline—confirming that the characters we know are officially not going to be present in any way.

“Thrones fans will be delighted to hear things have started with the prequel,” a source told The Sun. “Those working on the set in Belfast are referring to the series as Bloodmoon. Producers have put together a stellar cast and it will be must-watch telly for anyone who loves ‘Game of Thrones.’”

In addition, while no other shows are currently filming, there are still some other series in the works according to George R.R. Martin, who briefly discussed the shows in a recent post on his blog.

“Oh, and speaking of television, don’t believe everything you read. Internet reports are notoriously unreliable,” he wrote. “We have had five different ‘GAME OF THRONES’ successor shows in development (I mislike the term ‘spinoffs’) at HBO, and three of them are still moving forward nicely. The one I am not supposed to call ‘THE LONG NIGHT’ will be shooting later this year, and two other shows remain in the script stage, but are edging closer. What are they about? I cannot say. But maybe some of you should pick up a copy of “FIRE & BLOOD” and come up with your own theories.”
