HBO execs screened the pilot over the summer and were not thrilled with the results. They sent it back to be re-edited and still hated it. The series was doomed from the start due to budget overruns, personnel issues and creative differences.

The untitled series “chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And 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.”

But have no fear! HBO is still planning another prequel series co-created by everyones favorite literary troll George R.R Martin based on his book Fire & Blood which will be set 300 years before the original Thrones series, chronicling the beginning of the end for House Targaryen.
