Everything We Know About HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel ‘ House of the Dragon ‘
Well before Game of Thrones wrapped up its eight-year run with that controversial final season in spring of 2019,
there was talk dating back to 2017 that HBO was planning on releasing not one, but several spinoff and prequel series set in
A Song of Fire and Ice author George R. R. Martin’s fantastical universe. While one show that was supposed to take place
thousands of years before the events of GoT and star Naomi Watts got the go-ahead to film a pilot before the network ultimately decided to pull the plug on it, other optioned shows are still in the works.
One of them could be here fairly soon, actually.
House of the Dragon, which was already given a full-season order back in fall 2019,
is the first of the spin-offs coming down the pipeline. If you’re familiar with the the books or seen the original,
you should be able to recognize based on the title alone that the upcoming show is about the Targaryen family,
the clan from which Daenerys and Jon Snow are descendants. While HBO and George R. R. Martin start to light the embers on their latest collaboration,
here’s everything we know about House of the Dragon so far.
When will House of the Dragon be released?
HBO’s parent company WarnerMedia gave an update on the release dates of a number of its highly anticipated titles in late December 2020,
and House of the Dragon was among them.
The company shared a clip online, which confirmed the GoT prequel will arrive sometime in 2022.
Fans anxious to head back to Westeros should be happy to know that it seems possible that the show will arrive in the first half of 2022
(should the pandemic’s affect on television production continue to improve). Deadline reported at a February 2021 TCA panel that HBO’s chief content officer Casey Bloys revealed that the series is currently scheduled
to go into production in April. So, if all goes well and Season 1 completes filming in the summer, and then goes into post-production shortly after—which could take a little while because, you know,
CGI dragons—it’s possible new episodes could soar into HBO around late winter/spring of next year.
What will House of the Dragon be about?
Set 300 years before the events of GoT,
House of the Dragon chronicles the origins and end of the reign of House Targaryen,
according to THR. As shared by Entertainment Weekly, that includes the infamous Dance of the Dragons,
or the Targaryen civil war that tore Westeros apart. It’s based on Martin’s 2018 book Fire & Blood and
—considering the announcement that the character Viserys is leading the cast (more on that below)—seems to specifically start its timeline on the chapter “Heirs of the Dragon”
about the transfer of power from Jaehaerys Targaryen to Viserys.
With that in mind, it sounds like at least in part the series will follow Viserys’ journey in becoming
(or failing to become) the ruler of Westeros.
Aside from that vague description,
there aren’t many other details of the plot—but in the meantime you could get to ดูหนังออนไลน์
