HBO has ordered a Game of Thrones spinoff, ‘House of the Dragon’, straight to series. The new prequel is written by Ryan Condal (Colony), with George R.R. Martin set to co-executive produce.
The project is based on Martin’s 2019 book ‘Fire and Blood’, and is a history of House Targaryen (the ancestors of Daenerys) as they fight through a civil war. The 10-episode project is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
The show is set 300 years before the events of “Game of Thrones” and tells the story of the House of Targaryen, according to HBO. “The Game of Thrones universe is so rich with stories,” Casey Bloys, president of HBO programming, said in a press release. “We look forward to exploring the origins of House Targaryen and the earlier days of Westeros along with Miguel, Ryan and George.”
The project will mark HBO’s first official follow-up to “Game of Thrones,” which won best drama series at the Emmys back in September.
