VERY GOOD NEWS: Game of Thrones fans now have something to (finally) look forward to — the prequel series House of the Dragon will officially debut in 2022.
To celebrate this news and the official start of production, HBO also launched a brand-new Twitter account for House of the Dragon and released some exciting cast photos during a socially distanced table read:
Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen:
Steve Toussaint as The Sea Snake:
Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen:
Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen:
Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower:
And Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower:
House of the Dragon is based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood — which tells the history of House Targaryen — and will be set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
And GoT alum Miguel Sapochnik — who directed iconic GoT episodes like “Battle of the Bastards” — will serve as co-showrunner and direct the pilot (as well as other episodes).
Basically: It’s all starting again…so get hyped!
