GAME of Thrones’ Targaryen-oriented prequel series won’t scrimp on the dragons, George RR Martin has assured fans.

The celebrated author has remained tight-lipped about the spin-off series since the final season of his fantasy epic aired earlier this year.

However, amid mass speculation, Martin decided to take to his blog to keep fans in the loop about production developments.

Answering the burning question on fans’ mind, he confirmed: “I can say that there will be dragons.

“Everyone else has said that, so why not me?”

However, he did stress that the project was in the extremely early stages of planning, so don’t expect to see Westeros back on screen anytime soon.

“I do want to point out that ‘moving closer to a pilot order’ is NOT the same thing as ‘getting a pilot order.’ Would that it were,” he went on.

“This is encouraging, this is exciting, but don’t buy the couch just yet.

“When HBO actually gives us a pilot order, you will hear me shouting it from the rooftops.

“A series order, and I’ll be shouting even louder. But we’ll see. Right now all the signs are good, but nothing is confirmed.”

The series, based on the Fire & Blood novel, is set three centuries before the events of Game of Thrones and tracks the rise and fall of House Targaryen.

Elsewhere, Jane Goldman’s prequel series Bloodmoon has already wrapped filming on its pilot episode.

Fans already think they’ve figured out who Naomi Watts will be playing, and if they’re right she could be looking at a sticky end.
