Summer is going to be awesome for Game of Thrones fans. HBO has revealed that the prequel series House of the Dragon will premiere on August 21, 2022.
House of the Dragon’s official Twitter account has also shared some new images of the characters from the show, which you can see below.
The show this time will be based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood and will be set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones. The story will follow the House Targaryen which is the family of Daenerys Targaryen.
Martin has already seen a rough cut of the show’s first episode and shared that he loved it.
“I am anticipating HOUSE OF THE DRAGON pretty eagerly myself, for what it’s worth,” Martin wrote. “Okay, I am hardly objective. And I know a lot of what you will be seeing. (I, um, wrote the book). Also … mum’s the word now, don’t tell anyone… I’ve seen a rough cut of the first episode. And loved it. It’s dark, it’s powerful, it’s visceral… just the way I like my epic fantasy.”
House of the Dragon has quite a huge cast, starring Paddy Considine as King Viserys I Targaryen and Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen alongside Olivia Cooke, Matt Smith, Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Sonoyo Mizuno, Fabien Frankel, Graham McTavish, Ryan Corr, Jefferson Hall, and more.
So are you guys ready for the next story in the Game of Thrones universe?
