George R. R. Martin and Ryan Condal have produced a new fantasy drama television series for HBO called House of the Dragon. It’s a prequel to Game of Thrones, based on George R. R. Martin’s novel Fire & Blood. The series follows the rise and fall of House Targaryen 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
There was speculation dating back to 2017 that HBO was preparing to release not one, but several spinoffs and prequel series set in A Song of Fire and Ice author George R. R. Martin’s fantastical world before Game of Thrones ended its eight-year run with that divisive final season in spring of 2019.
House Of The Dragon Finally Goes On Floors!
And now being officially announced by HBO Max Series that the House of The Dragon will go on floors in 2022. House of the Dragon, which was already ordered for a full season in fall 2019, is the first of the spin-offs in the works. If you’ve read the books or seen the movie, you should be able to tell from the title that the forthcoming show is about the Targaryen dynasty, the clan from which Daenerys and Jon Snow are descended.
Also, the first season will have ten episodes, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Clare Kilner (EastEnders), Geeta Patel (The Witcher), and Greg Yaitanes are among the directors for the first season of House of the Dragon (House). They will work alongside Miguel Sapochnik, who was previously confirmed as the pilot’s director.
Regardless, that’s a lot of GoT-inspired TV to look forward to—and at least in the meantime, we have “House of the Dragon”.
