The day has brought a piece of bad news for the loyal fans of Game of Thrones. As per the latest reports by Hollywood Reporter, HBO has done the dreaded deed. In an unlucky twist of events, Game of Thrones spin-off Flea Bottom has been axed by HBO. The show was in early development for quite some time now, alongside other GOT off-shoots and prequels like 9 Voyages and 10,000 ships, but now it has been confirmed that the series won’t be moving to the screen.

Chronicling the life and events of the King's Landing slum, the show was supposed to be based in Flea Bottom, filled with tanneries, brothels and alehouses - the place of origin for Gendry Baratheon, Ser Davos Seaworth, and the brother of the Night's Watch, Karl Tanner.


However, not all is bad in the hood. Thankfully, fans will soon be treated with the prequel House of the Dragon, narrating the Targaryen Civil War set about 300 years before the events of GOT. Revolving around the Targaryen household, the series will showcase the power struggle and politics that caused the biggest civil war in the history of Westeros.

Co-created by George RR Martin and Ryan Condal, House of the Dragon has roped in artists Emma D’Arcy, Matt Smith, Paddy Considine, Fabien Frankel, Eve Best and Sonoya Mizuno, and is scheduled to arrive in 2022.
