After not so great final season of Game of Thrones, HBO has announced that several spin-off shows are in the works.
The first one, which should’ve been a prequel with Naomi Watts in the main role, was canceled, but the second, House of Dragon, got a green light.
Finally, HBO has revealed when House of Dragon will come on their streaming service, and we will have to wait till 2022 to see the new Game of Thrones series.
We still don’t exactly know the release date, but at least we got something.
Game of Thrones: House of Dragon will draw inspiration from George R.R. Martin’s novella Fire & Blood and will follow the Targaryan family’s rise, about 300 years before the events in the main series.
There were some rumors that we will see some of the characters from the original Game of Thrones show, but if there will be some, don’t expect the main characters to return.
Game of Thrones: House of the Dragon will star Paddy Considine as Viserys Targaryen, Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, and Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower.
HBO ordered House of the Dragon straight to series for 10 episodes in October 2019. George R.R. Martin, Ryan Condal, Vince Gerardis, and Miguel Sapochnik are executive producers, with Condal and Sapochnik also serving as showrunners.
Are you still excited to return the the world of Westeros?
