What is the new Game of Thrones series about?
The new Game of Thrones series takes place around 300 years before the original and is devoted to the rise and fall of House Targaryen. So we won’t see Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), but we will see her no less charismatic ancestors.
Specifically, it seems to be about the so-called Dance of the Dragons in which two half-siblings go to war against each other to determine rulership of the Seven Kingdoms among themselves.
You can read all about the new characters, including the ruling Targaryen, in the House of the Dragon cast article.
