Despite HBO’s original skeptical assumption, Game of Thrones has become the most successful and most watched series. Although the eighth season ended up unsatisfactory for many viewers, HBO wants to follow up with another series.
Under the name House of the Dragon, HBO has prepared a new ten-part spin-off series Game of Thrones. He will describe how the Targaryen family fell into a cruel and brutal civil war, heralding the beginning of the end of the ruling Western family.
The plot of the series will be set in the period of 200 years before the events in the series Game of Thrones. The screenplay will be prepared by Ryan Condale together with George RR Martin. The pilot episode and some other episodes will be directed by Miguel Sapochnik, who has already completed several episodes of Game of Thrones. The story will be based on George RR Martin’s book Fire and Blood and is intended to cover the history of the Targaryen family. The series began in 2019, filmed mainly in England.
According to available information, George RR Martin has already seen a rough cut of the first part in December 2021 and wrote on his blog: “It’s dark, it’s strong, it’s inner … exactly what I like for my epic fantasies. Most viewers will know just a few actors, but I think you’ll fall in love with a lot of them. I think the Targaryen are in very good hands. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. “
This is probably not the latest prequel Game of Thrones. HBO has negotiated other series that will develop the original series. The House of the Dragon premiered on August 21, 2022.
