Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, Kingsman: The Secret Service) will serve as show-runner and co-creator of the new series with George R. R. Martin.

This new series is the first, so far, to move forward beyond the original show. In May of last year, HBO revealed that an army of writers were working on what Martin described as “successor shows.”

The new series will detail the descent of the world from its heroic golden age into the darkness the original show detailed. HBO did divulge a logline which was mum on specifics: "Only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros' history to the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend — it's not the story we think we know."
