Game Of Thrones Prequel House Of The Dragon: What is Going On With The Fire And Blood TV Adaptation?

After the divisive conclusion of Game of Thrones, most fans were dissatisfied, but now, the dragon lovers can rejoice once more. The Home Box Office (HBO) announced that they would be renewing a new season from the Fantasy writer George R.R. Martin. The prequel series will be titled House of the Dragon, and it is an adaptation of Fire and Blood, which tells the narrative of Targaryen. The series will explore major battles such as the aftermath of the Doom of Valyria and the Dance of Dragons, also referred to as the Targaryen Civil War. Interestingly, this prequel is set 300 years before events in the Game of Thrones.


Game of Thrones Prequel Series Release Date:

According to Casey Bloys, the HBO programming president, the House of Dragon is expected to arrive in two years. The HBO has ordered a full series of 10 episodes, and a promotional poster has already been released with the tagline ‘Fire Will Reign.’ The creative team has already embarked on writing the script, and the filming should start sometime in 2021. Therefore, expect the release to be in mid or late 2022. 

What is Game of Thrones prequel series about?

The House of the Dragon has been set three decades before the events of the Game of Thrones. The series revolves around a turbulent period in the House Targaryen, which has a dragon against dragon and sibling against sibling. The main question is, who should rule on the Iron throne? According to Martin, one of the showrunners, fans can get a glimpse of what the show is about by reading a copy of the anthology by Dangerous Women and Rogues as well as Archmaester Glydayn’s history, Fire and Blood. Interestingly, the novel Fire and Blood is the first in a two-part history of the Targaryens in Westeros.
