LOS ANGELES, United States (AFP) — Fans of "Game of Thrones" could be treated to a prequel series set thousands of years before the hit fantasy saga, network HBO announced.

According to a statement released to US media Friday, HBO has ordered a pilot episode of the spinoff — one of five such projects in the works — created by the author of the original book series George RR Martin along with British screenwriter Jane Goldman.

The statement added that the prequel, if picked up, will give viewers the chance to see "the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour."

No "Game of Thrones" spinoffs, however, will be broadcast until after the much-anticipated eighth and final season of the phenomenally popular show, expected in 2019.

Martin has said that fans should not expect to see any of the current cast involved in those projects, according to entertainment website Variety.

HBO's most-watched original programme, "Game of Thrones" has already scooped up a record 38 Emmy Awards.
