HBO announces premiere date for Game of Thrones prequel

HBO has announced the premiere date for Game of Thrones spinoff show House of the Dragon: August 21.

It will be a ten episode drama set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, telling the story of House Targaryen (Daenerys and Jon’s ancestors) based on George RR Martin’s book “Fire & Blood”.

As this is Targaryens, you can expect plenty of dragons, silver wigs and yes, incest – in this case it’s between an uncle and a nice rather than the aunt and nephew action that Daenerys and Jon had.

Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik, best known for directing the series’ infamous action set pieces like The Battle of the Bastards, is back as director and Producer/co-showrunner so you can expect plenty of big action too.

The plot revolves around the Dance of the Dragons – the civil war that raged over the throne between the Targaryen siblings Aegon II and Rhaenyra after the death of their father.

the main characters will be Prince Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith, “The Crown”), who is the King’s brother; his niece Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy), who is the king’s daughter; King Viserys Targaryen (Paddy Considine); Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke); and Lord Corlys Velaryon (Steve Toussaint), known as the Sea Serpent.

Although “Game of Thrones” was over dismay of the mass audience — and controversially gave the Targaryen family an unspectacular ending when Jon killed Daenerys and then departed into the wild — HBO is full steam ahead on the prequel, and writer George RR Martin has given it his seal of approval.

“…All ten episodes. I’ve seen rough cuts of some of them and I love them…the writing, the direction, the acting all look great,” he said wrote in a blog post

So, mark your calendars: On August 21, 2022, the dragons will dance.
