RELATED: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau on Game of Thrones Criticism: ‘I Love It’
Based on the popular (and still unfinished) book series A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R.R. Martin, the Emmy-winning fantasy series chronicles an epic struggle for power in a vast and violent kingdom. The series stars Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams.
The final season of Game of Thrones won’t be our last trip to Westeros however, as HBO has greenlit a pilot set 1,000 years before the events of the wildly popular sword and sorcery epic. Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse have been cast in the as-yet-untitled prequel series. S.J. Clarkson (The Defenders, Jessica Jones) will direct the pilot.
The 71st Emmy Awards will telecast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, September 22, (8-11 p.m. ET/5-8 p.m. PT) on FOX. The 71st Emmy Awards will be co-produced by Don Mischer Productions and Done+Dusted.
