Stop everything you’re doing, because we have major news regarding the Naomi Watts Game of Thrones prequel: It’s not happening.
According to Deadline, while HBO has more GoT spinoffs in the pipeline, this particular prequel (written by Jane Goldman and starring Watts) is no longer part of the lineup.
And while the company hasn’t confirmed anything just yet, Deadline reports that Goldman has been emailing the cast and crew of the project to tell them that the pilot is no longer moving forward. Ouch.
If true, the news is pretty shocking. Over the summer at the TCA press tour, HBO programming head Casey Bloys confirmed that the pilot officially finished filming. (The prequel began filming earlier this year in Belfast, Ireland.)
