House Of The Dragon – The New Game of Thrones Prequel!

Yesterday it was confirmed that we are getting a brand new prequel to Game Of Thrones called House Of The Dragon. George R.R Martin will be co-creator along with Ryan Condal and the showrunners will be Condal & Miguel Sapochnik, who is famous for directing some of the bigger Game Of Thrones episodes such as, The Long Night, Hardhome and The Battle Of The Bastards. This is really exciting for Game Of Thrones fans because he was a massive part of the success that Thrones had along with George R.R Martin who will no doubt be overseeing everything that goes on with this show so it doesn’t turn out like Game Of Thrones did.

What Will The Show Be About?

House Of The Dragon will be inspired by George R.R Martin’s book “Fire & Blood” which is a complete history of House Targaryen. The book has famous stories such as Aegon’s Conquest, Heirs of the Dragon – A Question of Succession and Aftermath – The Hour of the Wolf. It could take place in any of these different time periods and choose to tell the stories of many fascinating characters from the world of ice and fire.

The show will take place on HBO just like Game Of Thrones and they seem very exciting about visiting George R.R Martin’s world again. HBO President Casey Bloys said “We look forward to exploring the origins of House Targaryen and the earlier days of Westeros along with Miguel, Ryan and George.”

This news came right after we heard that HBO will no longer be moving forward with the other Game of Thrones prequel known as the Long Night, also known as “BloodMoon”. I was slightly disappointed with this news because i was looking forward to getting a bit more history about the Others, after i was left very disappointment by how they ended in the show.

Although it would of been nice to have two Game Of Thrones prequels running at the same time, at least we have the positive news that HBO is going ahead with House Of The Dragon and we are very much looking forward to it!
