Watts has been nervous about entering the fantasy universe and speaking to reporters she said I still have fears about [the show], […] I don’t really know what to prepare for… I didn’t start watching until I was approached about this job.

Bloodmoon was initially titled “The Long Night” at first and takes place 10, 0000 years before the present setting of the Game of Thrones that ended with Arya Stark smashing the Night King to smithereens. HBO has been kind enough to provide the synopsis of the plot

“Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.
