‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel Series ‘House of the Dragon’ Is Officially In Production


The spring and summer television schedule had a long run of being dominated by HBO’s Game of Thrones. It’s been nearly two years since Game of Thrones concluded in May of 2019, and production is now officially underway for the prequel series, House of the Dragon.

 

 

The official Game of Thrones Twitter account got the hype started earlier today, cryptically tweeting a single fire emoji before working their way up to many fire emojis:

 

 

House of the Dragon now has social media accounts of their own, and they’ve been sharing some insight on the start of production:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

House of the Dragon is based on A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood, taking place 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones and following the Targaryen family.

 

Included in the known cast are Paddy Considine (King Viserys Targaryen), Olivia Cooke (Alicent Hightower), Emma D’Arcy (Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen), Matt Smith (Prince Daemon Targaryen), Steve Toussaint (“The Sea Snake”), Eve Best (Princess Rhaenys Velaryon), Rhys Ifans (Otto Hightower), Sonoyo Mizuno (Mysaria), and Fabien Frankel (Ser Criston Cole).

 

HBO and the House of the Dragon team—with Martin and Ryan Condal (Colony) as the series co-creators, and Thrones vet Miguel Sapochnick (“Battle of the Bastards”, “The Long Night”) as showrunners—can now only do their best and hope this is the start of another epic global phenomenon like Game of Thrones.

 

House of the Dragon will premiere on HBO and HBO Max in 2022.
