Game of Thrones might be over now, but the prequel is on its way as filming for the new series has just begun. The HBO's spin-off, which is currently untitled, has started filming its pilot on location (reported by Entertainment Weekly) and the location is very familiar to fans of the original series. The place is Northern Ireland, which was the main location for shooting all of Game of Thrones' eight seasons. There are no further details of whether the new series will shoot in other countries too. The prequel is set thousands of years before the events in Game of Thrones, described by HBO as a show that "chronicles the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour". The new series is written by Jane Goldman, and it also brings author George R.R. Martin and Jessica Jones' director S.J. Clarkson. Oscar nominee Naomi Watts was confirmed to be playing a lead role, alongside Josh Whitehouse.
