Post cancelling another prequel supposedly starring Naomi Watts, HBO has finally announced the release of The Game of Thrones prequel ‘House of the Dragon’. HBO programming President Casey Bloys while delivering a presentation for HBO Max disclosed the idea of ‘House of the Dragon’ with the intention of gaining attention in the online streaming marketplace.
The channel revealed that it’s going to be a 10-episode series and will be dated around 300 years before the original one which ended its eight-season run in May this year. House of the Dragon will mainly put the spotlight on the early days of Westeros and House Targaryen which became quite well-known amongst fans by Emilia Clarke’s character Daenerys and her mighty dragons. In July, a pilot had been shot for the prequel in Northern Ireland.
Bloys at a Television Critics Association program in Beverly Hills promised “It looks really good. The cast was amazing”. Game of Thrones tweeted saying that House of the Dragon would be co-produced by the original Game of Thrones author George RR Martin, Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Condal. While no official release date has been announced, fans of the superhit show are already eagerly waiting for the prequel.
