HBO Max has dictated Game of Thrones‘ House Targaryen prequel TV indicate straight-from-the-shoulder to lines, disclosing that it will be called House of the Dragon. Miguel Sapochnik, who directed Game of Thrones episodes including “Hardhome” and “Battle of the Rogues, ” will send the pilot and additional escapades, while also serving as showrunner alongside Ryan Condal( Colony ).

House of the Dragon was co-created by Condal and A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin, and is based on Martin’s book Fire& Blood, which recounts the history of House Targaryen. Casey Bloys, chairwoman of HBO Programming, announced a 10 -episode series order for House of the Dragon during a special presentation for brand-new subscription streaming service HBO Max. The proclamation comes on the ends of news that another Game of Thrones prequel sequence, which was created by Jane Goldman( Kick-Ass) and set to star Naomi Watts in a leading role, has been cancelled.

The announcement of House of the Dragon’s series order also confirmed that the prequel line will be established 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones – around the time that Aegon I Targaryen and his sister-wives, Visenya and Rhaenys, propelled their annexation of Westeros. The show’s tagline is “Fire Will Reign, ” alluding to the fact that the Targaryens exploited the might of their dragons to take control of the Seven Kingdoms and begin a monarchy than previous for three centuries – until lastly Aerys the Mad King was slain by Jaime Lannister and Robert Baratheton ascended to the Iron Throne. That throne, incidentally, was forged from the swords that were surrendered to Aegon the Conqueror by the lords of Westeros, so we may actually get to see its creation in House of the Dragon.

Regarding the new series, Bloys said, “The’ Game of Thrones’ universe is so rich with legends. We looked forward to receiving exploring the parentages of House Targaryen and the earlier eras of Westeros along with Miguel, Ryan and George.” A secrete space for House of the Dragon has yet to be discovered, but given that it’s still early days for the demonstrate we’re unlikely to see it premiere before 2021.
