Here's How Celebrities Reacted to the 'Game of Thrones' Finale

On the heels of the first spinoff, set thousands of years before the original series, this latest project moves the action much closer to the era of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.

HBO has already started working on one "Game of Thrones" spinoff pilot, but a new potential series the network is considering might just bring the action much closer to home.

The first spinoff, starring Naomi Watts, takes place five thousands years before the adventures of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, so it could bear very little resemblance or familiarity to fans of the blockbuster fantasy series.

This new project, which Entertainment Weekly reports HBO is very close to ordering a pilot on, promises to bring familiar names, locales and stories from the "Thrones" we know and love to life.

While still unnamed, the new series would take place a scant 300 years before the events of "Game of Thrones" and focus on the Targaryen family, which means a look at a dynasty in descent and the fall of the dragons. Yes, that means that we should get to see a lot more dragons.

Who knows, maybe we'd even get the story of those three dragon eggs that make their way to Daenerys as part of her wedding gifts.

The project was largely inspired by "Thrones" creator George R.R. Martin's recent "Fire and Blood" series which chronicled 150 years of the Targaryen family.

Perhaps most importantly, the book covers the era that the series would cover, meaning fans wouldn't have to worry about what happens when the show's creators surpass the source material and start making really bad decisions before flubbing the ending of their story.

It's quite possible the series would choose to focus on the massive Targaryen civil war (approximately 200 years prior to the events of the parent series) between half-siblings Aegon and Rhaenyra over control of the Seven Kingdoms.

This setting would allow for lots of familiar locations on the famous "Thrones" map, including Winterfell, the Wall and possibly even the fall of Harrenhall.

The first "Thrones" spinoff pilot is looking to explore the backstory of the White Walkers, while this series could help establish the political dynamics of the world as seen on "Game of Thrones."

The fall of the Targaryens, the rise of Lannisters, the bending of the first Stark knee. Oh, and did we mention dragons?

Scores and scores of dragons! And maybe Bran could swing by on one of his traveling adventures through time.
