Fans of Game of Thrones may soon be throwing it all the way back to the rise and fall of House Targaryen. 

Deadline is reporting that a second prequel series is inching closer to a pilot order at HBO, meaning there could be two GOT related series at the pilot stage at the premium cabler. 

The Next Battle - Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4

Set, 300 years before the original series, it would chronicle the "beginning of the end for House Targaryen."

Oh yes, this new series will go down will fans of Daenerys Targaryen and her families wild history.

Original creator and GOT book author George R.R. Martin will write the script for the pilot alongside Ryan J. Condal of Colony fame. 

Furthermore, the series would be based on the book Fire & Blood, which tells the history of the Targaryen family.

It makes sense to travel this route given that Daenerys was one of the most popular characters during the eight-season run of the original series.

It means fans will get to witness first-hand just how gnarly things got with her family back in the good old days. 

HBO has yet to order the pilot, so we must stress that this is likely very early into development, so there's no guarantee this will ever make the air.

HBO has already ordered a pilot for a series that focuses on the Golden Age of Heroes. 

Saying Goodbye - Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4

Here's the official logline:

"The series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.” 

That series comes from a pilot penned by Jane Goldman (X-Men: First Class) and has Naomi Watts in a lead role.

Game of Thrones Quotes

How am I supposed to sit here planning a war, when you're over there looking like that?

Robb Stark

Thoros: You still mad at us, boy?
Gendry: You sold me to a witch.
Thoros: A priestess. I'll admit, it is a subtle distinction.
Beric: We're fighting a great war. Wars cost money.
Gendry: I wanted to be one of you. I wanted to join the brotherhood, but you sold me off... like a slave. Do you know what she did to me? She strapped me down in the bed. She stripped me naked.
The Hound: Sounds alright so far.
Gendry: And put leeches on me.
The Hound: Was she naked, too?
Thoros: She needed your blood.
Gendry: Yes, thank you. I know that.
The Hound: Could have been worse.
Gendry: She wanted to kill me. They would have killed me if it wasn't for Davos.
The Hound: But they didn't, did they? So what are you whinging about?
Gendry: I'm not whinging.
The Hound: Your lips are moving and you're complaining about something. That's whinging. This one's been killed six times. You don't hear him whinging about it.
