Background & info on House of the Dragon
Back in May 2017, HBO commissioned the five writers Jane Goldman, Brian Helgeland, Carly Wray, Max Borenstein as well as Bryan Cogman to conceive new spin-offs and follow-up projects for the hit series Game of Thrones in collaboration with George R.R. Martin. Game of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff were not involved in this process.
A prequel idea from writer Jane Goldman received a pilot order in June 2018. However, after filming the pilot episode starring Naomi Watts, the project was officially canceled in October 2019. The series would have been set approximately 10,000 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
Only shortly after, the idea for House of the Dragon received an official series order with 10 episodes. Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik serve as showrunners. The series is based on George R.R. Martin’s novel Fire and Blood – Rise and Fall of the House Targaryen of Westeros. In February 2021, it was announced that filming on House of the Dragon will begin in England in April 2021. Season 1 is scheduled to premiere on HBO in 2022. (MW/PR)
