Naomi Watts releases disappointed statement
Fans were left disappointed when HBO seemingly cancelled out of nowhere the Game of Thrones prequel that was set to be released in 2021.
Watts and Josh Whitehouse filmed the pilot episode in Northern Ireland in 2019, but HBO cancelled it without a reason, leaving fans in the dark.
"I’m sorry," Watts addressed her fans in a letter to News.com.au. "I feel your pain. I equally got into it. I wasn’t a huge fan and hadn’t seen the shows until I was hired and then completely binged everything within the space of a couple of months and it’s just wonderful."
"It’s a deep shame, it would have been great fun," she continued. "But I am not allowed to give anything away, I’m afraid."
The series was supposed to chronicle the descent of the Targaryen throne, the truth of the White Walker origins, and the Stark family secrets.
Despite this prequel being cancelled, there is another HBO prequel in the works that will be based on George R.R. Martin's Fire & Blood novel, taking place 300 years before "Daenerys Targaryen" is born.
