However, the first prequel series set in the lands of Westeros has quietly begun production. According to Entertainment Weekly, the pilot for the prequel began filming in Northern Ireland. The story is reportedly set thousands of years before the events of ‘Game of Thrones.’
The Stark kids are getting the opportunity to look back and cringe at their first season working the hit-mega series "Game of Thrones."
