Let’s address the elephant in the room. Regardless of what you think of Game of Thrones and how it ended, we all have to admit that the music was one of the best parts of the show. That’s all thanks to the amazing original score by composer Ramin Djwadi. He brought a sense of prestige and epicness to each score, and each character, place and scene was represented in the perfect manner through the tone and melodies in the dozens of songs he composed for the series throughout its run.
Regardless of how bad an episode or season got (in the later seasons), we could always look forward to the perfect muscial cue, or moment of tension produced by the notes he played. So fans of the broader world created by GRRM will be pleased to know that this very composer will return to work on the prequel series currently in development at HBO. GRRM himself is heavily involved, but the details about the show are still being kept under wraps for now.
According to HBO, the show, based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood, will tell the story of House Targaryen (a.k.a. the House that gave us the Mother of Dragons herself, Daenerys Targaryen) and take place 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
here are more details about who is working behind the scenes to bring this show to life:
Martin and Ryan Condal (Colony, Hercules) will serve as co-creators on the series. Miguel Sapochnik and Condal will be showrunners, and the pair will also serve as executive producers along with Martin, Vince Gerardis, Sara Lee Hess and Ron Schmidt.
Sapochnik, whose directing credits include six Game of Thrones episodes, won Emmy and DGA honors for “Battle of the Bastards.” He was nominated for another Emmy in 2019 for directing “The Long Night” and won the Emmy for Best Drama Series as an executive producer for the final season.
Clare Kilner (The Alienist: Angel of Darkness, The Wedding Date) and Geeta V. Patel (Meet the Patels, The Witcher) will also direct the series. Greg Yaitanes (Banshee, House) is director and co-executive producer. Game of Thrones and Westworld composer Ramin Djawadi will score the series.
Here’s the epic title sequence he made for Game of Thrones which is super iconic and will be remembered for many years to come
