The highly anticipated spin-off of the “Game of Thrones” TV series may film in Scotland. A scouting team of the show is reportedly exploring specific locations where they can film the prequel.

According to a report by DailyRecord the scouting team of the show is looking at the isle of Skye as the first location for the show. The prequel will be set 10,000 years before the events of the current main TV series, and it i set at the time of the Age of Heroes in Westeros. This is the long period of peace after the war between the First Men and the Children of the Forest. The report also confirms that title of the show to be “The Long Night.”

“A Song of Ice and Fire” author George RR Martin, on whose books the HBO series is based, had previously suggested that the title of the show maybe “The Long Night,” and he had added that the studio may add the words “Game of Thrones” to this title.

The isle of Skye is one of Scotland’s many beautiful locations. The island is already a top tourist spot that offers visitors everything from dinosaur fossils to the rich Scotland history. The location also has a connection to Bonnie Prince Charles and the Jacobite uprising.

“The Long Night” is the first of the four spin-off shows that are currently being developed by different teams at HBO. Readers should note that only the pilot has been ordered for this show, and they are yet to cast the various characters. Jane Goldman has been selected to helm the project, and she has also written the script.

More details about the start of production and the filming schedule should be announced soon. The main “Game of Thrones” TV series will air its eight and the last season next year.
