The Game Of Thrones prequel series that was created by Jane Goldman and George RR Martin might be titled Bloodmoon, some fairly convincing new evidence suggests. Here’s everything you need to know…
The show, which recently began filming its pilot episode in Northern Ireland, was previously referred to as The Long Night. But given that The Long Night was an episode title in the final season of Game Of Thrones, it makes sense that a new moniker for the prequel series might’ve been invented to avoid any confusion. The new show is set thousands of years before the main series, so you don’t want people to think they are explicitly linked in terms of events.
As for Bloodmoon, the renowned Game Of Thrones fan site Watchers On The Wall has exclusively uncovered a piece of concept art which shows this new title being used by production staff. There is moon imagery on two of the ‘O’s in the word, and a spear breaking up the text down the middle.
This title card was apparently not meant for public view, so we can’t be a hundred per cent sure if this is the official title or just a working title. We’ll just have to wait and see to find out if Bloodmoon is the final title that the show will have at broadcast.
That broadcast, after all, is still a long way off. As far as we know, HBO hasn’t ordered a full season yet, with the network waiting to see the pilot episode first.
As we hear more, we’ll be sure to let you know.
