HBO has annouced a Game of Thrones spinoff, House of the Dragon, through to series. The latest prequel is penned by Ryan Condal (Colony), with George R.R. Martin arranged to co-executive produce.
The series is based on Martin’s 2019 novel Fire and Blood and reflects a history of House Targaryen (the origins of Daenerys) as they struggle by civil conflict. The 10-episode plan is established 300 years before the episodes of Game of Thrones.
According to a source, Casey Bloys(HBO executive) declared at an appearance for HBO Max, AT&T’s streaming service arriving in May 2020. The news arrives just hours following news broke that HBO removed an earlier announced Game of Thrones spinoff sequel.
According to a source, it seems part of the reason HBO drove ahead with House of the Dragon is that the established history written by Martin to work as a spine for the story.
The other helmsman only had some obscure sources to build on. The object is to eventually have the scenes of the new series lead up to The Dance of the Dragons. It’s a significant moment in the Seven Kingdoms’ memoir, heading to an all-out civil conflict amid two opposing sides of House Targaryen.
Do We Have Any Character From Game of Thrones?
Maybe not – except the Night King or some Children of the Forest make a cameo.
The sequel is apparently set 300 years before the scenes of Game of Thrones, suggesting that none of the figures we’ve developed to know and love would seem.
Nonetheless, if the sequel does accommodate the period in Westerosi history that it’s rumoured to, we will get the origins of the Starks, Lannisters, Baratheons and other families that we’re more intimate with – along with Aegon “the Conqueror” Targaryen and his sister-wives Rhaenys and Visenya, all of whom were introduced usually in the sequel.
Moreover, there is one well-known figure that we might get one more time – that of famously great dragon Balerion the Black Dread, Aegon’s mount whose head remained in the dungeons of King’s Landing during most of Game of Thrones although he might have a little bit more surface on his bones.
It is not clear when the House of the Dragon is anticipated to broadcast.
