(Newser) – Fans of the mega-hit fantasy series "Game of Thrones" have been both eagerly awaiting the upcoming season and dreading it at the same time. The show's highly anticipated next season will be it's last. But, according to CNN, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. HBO has reportedly ordered a pilot in the form of a prequel that will take place thousands of years prior to the Westeros fans know and love today, back in the era when author George R.R. Martin describes an age of heroes that descended into a time of darkness. Given that it will take place some 10,000 years before they were born, EW notes that none of today's favorite characters are likely to be back for the as yet unnamed prequel. Those folks will still be around (some likely longer than others) for the last season, which is set to air sometime in 2019. HBO said the prequel will likely air no sooner than a year after that.
