Hit HBO show “Game of Thrones” prequel will reportedly start filming in Northern Ireland in October. The World famous TV series wrapped up the filming of their eighth and final season. Since the wrap, actors of the show have been bidding farewell to their beloved characters portrayed in the series, but fans are excited about the prequels that are coming.

According to a recent report by the Belfast Telegraph, filming for the new show will take place at Paint Hall studios in Belfast, where the original “Game of Thrones” series was shot. 

“This is fantastic news for everyone at the studio - from the cast and the crew, right down to the riggers and the catering staff,” a Paint Hall Studio source told the newspaper.

“Game of Thrones” author George RR Martin wrote about HBO and their pilot order in a June 11 blog post. 

“To clarify, what we have here is a pilot order, not as yet a series order,” he wrote. 

“Though of course we are all hoping that will follow.”

Moreover, “Game of Thrones” fans will still have to say goodbye to their favorite characters. Martin said no one from the original cast will reappear in the new show as the story predates their world by thousands of years.
