The prequel series forGame of Thrones, by HBO, has been binned and the episodes that were filmed will not be shown.

The show was intended to focus on the “Age of Heroes” and the origin of the terrifying White Walkers, revealing more of *** Westeros’ history.

But fans will be devastated to hear that producers have cancelled the Naomi Watts-fronted series, even after completely revamping it.

Screenwriter Jane Goldman was forced to alter the show after unimpressed HBO producers slammed her original attempt.

But even the second go of it was not enough, and the pilot has not been renewed, and the channel won’t be airing it.

The show was going to explain the origin of the White Walkers

According, the pilot was “troubled” due to “budget overruns, numerous personal issues and myriad creative differences”.

The show had promised: “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. ”

George RR Martin wrote the books
