Game of Thrones was a major hit for HBO, and it is still regarded as one of the best series of all time, especially within the fantasy genre. The broadcasting company was quick to produce a spin-off, House of the Dragon, whose second season is going to premiere soon, but we also know that a prequel series titled A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms is in the works as well, which is also going to be part of the larger Game of Thrones TV universe. As the series is getting ready for filming, we are going to prepare you for the final product with this report.

In this report, as you might have guessed, we are going to bring you all that we know about the upcoming A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms series in one place. You are going to find out all that we know about the series’ release date, episode count, plot, trailer, and cast, ahead of the upcoming premiere. This will be your go-to guide for all the info in one place, as the article is going to be updated regularly as more information is released.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms release date

An adaptation of Martin’s prequel novellas was announced in 2021, and it was confirmed that a series would be produced in April 2023. The series is, at the time, in the very early stages of production, so a release window has not been given as of the time of writing, and we doubt it will be before 2025.

How many episodes will A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms have?

The episode count is always an important piece of information for fans, which is why everyone is eager to know how many episodes an upcoming season is going to have. As far as A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms is concerned, we can confirm that the first season will consist of 6 episodes in total.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms trailer

As we have said above, the A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms prequel series is in the earliest production stages, which means that filming of the series hasn’t even begun. Until filming begins, we won’t have access to any material from the upcoming season, so there is no trailer or teaser for A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms at this moment. But, all the videos will be available on Max’s official YouTube channel, so we are going to bring them here as soon as they arrive.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms plot

The exact premise of A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms prequel series is not known, but Max has released an official short teaser synopsis for the upcoming season, and here is what they have revealed: “A century before the events of ‘Game of Thrones,’ two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros… a young, naïve but courageous knight, Ser Duncan the Tall (Claffey), and his diminutive squire, Egg (Ansell). Set in an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne, and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living memory, great destinies, powerful foes, and dangerous exploits all await these improbable and incomparable friends.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms cast

As we have said, it is way too early to have any official casting updates, as the season hasn’t even entered production properly. Still, we do have some information related to the cast, although it is a very limited set of data and more cast members will certainly be revealed in the future. This is what we have in terms of the cast as of the time of writing:

  • Season 2 confirmed cast: Peter Claffey as Dunk, Dexter Sol Ansell as Egg
  • Season 2 rumored cast: TBC (there are no casting rumors as of the time of writing)

Where to watch A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms?

As was the case for all the Game of Thrones series, the upcoming A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms prequel will be available on HBO and its streaming platform Max, which has exclusive distribution rights for the series. This is also the only place where you can watch all the other series from the franchise as well.
