Most importantly, according to the family legend, Casterlys lost their castle to a man named Lann the Clever, who is said to have fooled the family out of their ancestral homes once during the heroes' bright and taken the castle of his own family, Lannisters.
It is unclear whether we will see this story in this prequel series, but Martin to mention the Casterly name means there is hope that fans will finally see exactly how Lannisters really have acquired Casterly Rock.

The entertainment weekend interview also mentions that Martin is hard at work at The Winds of Winter, the sixth book in the song for the ice and fire series, but of course he gives no information about when we can also expect it.
