"Game of Thrones" finished its epic run in May, but the franchise – as opposed to many of the HBO hit's deceased characters – appears to have plenty of life left in it.

五月份史詩級巨作《權利的游戲》大結局了,但這部劇與HBO許多熱播劇中死去的角色不一樣,劇里好像還有很多生命。

HBO is nearing a pilot deal for a prequel series that would be set three centuries before "GoT" and would focus on the decline of House Targaryen.

HBO即將試播一部前傳,劇情設定在《權游》的300年前,主要講述坦格利安家族的衰落。

Deadline first reported the news, which was confirmed by a person familiar with the project who was not authorized to speak publicly.

最初是Deadline網站報道了這一消息,從一個內部人士那里得到了證實,但此人無權公開透露這一消息。

The project is from George R.R. Martin, best-selling author of the book series on which "GoT" is based, and Ryan Condal ("Colony").

劇本出自喬治·雷蒙德·理查德·馬丁和Ryan Condal(《殖民地》的編劇),馬丁是《權游》的原作叢書的暢銷作者。

Martin suggested in May on his blog that readers could get hints about the project by reading his novel "Fire & Blood." The book is described as a Targaryen history and is set 300 years before the events of "GoT," which featured one of the family's most famous descendants, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).

馬丁于五月份在博客上表示讀者可以從他的小說《火與血》中得到一些新劇的線索,這本書被稱為坦格利安家族史,故事發生在《權游》的300年前,《權游》的主角之一丹妮莉絲·坦格利安(艾米莉亞·克拉克飾演)就是這個家族最著名的后代之一。

He wouldn't reveal the plot of the new project, but wrote: "Maybe some of you should pick up a copy of 'Fire & Blood' and come up with your own theories."

他不能對新劇劇透,但他寫道:“你們有些人可能應該讀讀《火與血》,自己腦補一下劇情。”

Another potential prequel series already is in the works, having completed taping of the pilot in Ireland earlier this year.

另外一部即將播出的前傳已在制作中,今年早些時候已在愛爾蘭完成試播錄音。

That project, which is in post-production, stars Naomi Watts and is set thousands of years before the original. During remarks at the Television Critics Association in July, HBO program chief Casey Bloys said the filmed dailies look "really good."

這部劇正處于后期制作階段,由娜奧米·沃茨主演,故事發生在原著的數千年前。HBO項目負責人Casey Bloys 7月份在電視評論家協會提到該劇時說拍攝效果“真的很不錯”。
