HBO’s epic series “Game of Thrones” ended in May 2019, but fans of the fantasy show don’t need to be disappointed as the production company has announced a prequel that contains as much drama, intrigue, and action. Click through for everything we know about the upcoming series so far.
On October 30, 2019, the official Twitter handle of “Game of Thrones” released the title of the upcoming series – “House of the Dragon”.
The rise of Targaryens
Based on George R. R. Martin’s book “Fire & Blood”, the story takes place 300 years before the events of the original series and traces the rise and reign of House Targaryen.
Martin is on board
Martin is reported to be the show’s co-executive producer.
Together with Martin, Ryan J. Condal will produce the show as a co-author and executive producer. He is known for screenplays for films such as “Hercules” (2014) and “Rampage” (2018) as well as for the television series “Colony” (2016-18).
Emmy-awarded director Miguel Sapochnik, best remembered for his work on the episode “Battle of the Bastards”, is expected to lead the pilot and other episodes of the upcoming series. He will also work with Condal as a co-showrunner.
Ordered as standard
HBO has ordered 10 episodes for the series so far. Casey Bloys, president of the program, said: “The Game of Thrones universe is so rich in stories. We look forward to exploring the origins of House Targaryen and the earlier days of Westeros with Miguel, Ryan and George. “
Previous prequel killed
HBO had previously announced another prequel series to record the very first battle between the White Walkers and humans. Several stars, including Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse, should play the main role. However, the show was reportedly killed by HBO on October 29, 2019, shortly before the new prequel was announced.
The prequel “Game of Thrones” will be broadcast “sometime in 2022”.
“House of the Dragon” is currently being worked on, playing around 300 years before the events in the HBO series that ended after eight seasons last year and tells the story of House Targaryen, but fans still have some waiting time until it appears on the screen.
Casey Bloys, general manager of HBO, told Deadline: “I guess sometime in 2022. You start writing.
“Obviously it’s a big, complicated show.”
Casey has confirmed that there is no current casting news for the show.
And the managing director also admitted that no further potential ‘GoT’ spin-offs are currently in the works as the focus is on ‘House of the Dragon’.
