Last week was -- to put it mildly -- a bit of a rollercoaster as far as Game of Thrones news was concerned, especially when it came to the spinoff/prequel shows in development at HBO. It gave the fandom whiplash, but it also gave us plenty to talk about! On this week's episode of The Night's Cast, Vanessa, Petra and Samantha do just that: we talk about which prequel got the (somewhat unexpected) axe and which one seems to be fast-tracking toward production.
Bonus Episode: Fire & Spinoffs?
There's big (potential) news in the realm, and if it turns out to be anything of substance, we'll be seeing much more fire and blood on our small screens in the not-so-distant future -- and the Night's Cast is here to break down exactly what that means! On this bonus episode, Petra, Samantha and Vanessa discuss the news that HBO is reportedly close to giving the greenlight on a House Targaryen-centered spinoff. What might we see in this spinoff? How did it get to this point in development? We're here to talk you through it!
Episode 28: Summer School at the Citadel, Part 3
Okay, fine -- technically, summer is over (and winter is coming!). But The Night's Cast still has one more history class to teach, so settle in for the last time this semester! This week, Vanessa, Petra and Samantha wrap up their guest teaching slots at the Citadel by covering the basics of the Long Night (in case you need a refresher) and some of the mysterious civilizations of Essos -- one or more of which will figure into the still-tentatively-titled prequel in the works, Blood Moon.
Episode 27: Summer School at the Citadel, Part 2
We're continuing our series of Westeros History 101 with another installment in Summer School at the Citadel -- so if you're feeling a bit overwhelmed with the talk behind the Game of Thrones spinoff in the works, which deals with a Westeros thousands of years older than what we saw in the original show, pick up a quill and have a seat! Your co-maesters Petra, Samantha and Vanessa are back this week, talking about the Westerlands, the Reach, the Casterlys, and some other areas of Westeros we may -- or may not, it's still all speculation at this point -- see in the tentatively-titled Blood Moon.
Episode 26: Summer School at the Citadel, Part 1
Feeling a little lost with all the prequel talk of "the Age of Heroes" and other Westeros history? Have no idea who Lann the Clever is? Why does that Stark sigil we glimpsed from the set look different? Not to worry -- school is in session! The Night's Cast is your visiting maester for a couple of episodes we're calling Summer School at the Citadel, in which we dive into any and all Westeros (and some Essos) history that might be relevant to the upcoming spinoff. This week, join Vanessa, Petra and Samantha for lesson number one on the Dawn Age, early Starks and more.
