House of the Dragon: Game of Thrones Prequel Eyeing 2022 Debut

According to Deadline, HBO president Casey Bloys has confirmed that they’re planning to release their upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon in 2022 which would be three years after the original series had concluded its eight-season run. Bloys has also revealed that casting is still underway which is actually in line with previous reports back in July where the network was reportedly looking for actresses to portray the series’ female lead characters Rhaenyra Targaryen and Alicent Hightower.

Based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood, the series will chronicle the rise and the downfall of the Targaryens, who is the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria. It will take place 300 years before the events of the award-winning series adaptation of Game of Thrones which aired its final episode last May 2019.

House of the Dragon is created by George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal (Colony). Miguel Sapochnik has also signed on to direct the pilot and additional episodes of the series. Sapochnik and Condal are also set as co-showrunners of the prequel.

First published in 2018, Fire & Blood was released as a companion to A Song of Ice and Fire. The novel begins its tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to recount the generations of Targaryens who fought to hold that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart.

‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel Series ‘House of the Dragon’ Casts Paddy Considine

The “Game of Thrones” prequel series “House of the Dragon” at HBO has found its first cast member — English actor Paddy Considine.

Variety has learned that Considine has signed on to star in the series in the role of King Viserys I, who chosen by the lords of Westeros to succeed the Old King, Jaehaerys Targaryen, at the Great Council at Harrenhal. A warm, kind, and decent man, Viserys only wishes to carry forward his grandfather’s legacy. But good men do not necessarily make for great kings.

Fans of the lore created by George R.R. Martin will recall that Viserys I ruled over Westeros around 100 years after Aegon’s Conquest. His children, Rhaenyra and Aegon II, would ultimately fight a civil war over his throne that became known as the Dance of Dragons.

“House of the Dragon” is set a few hundred years prior to the events of “Game of Thrones” and tells the story of House Targaryen. It is expected to air sometime in 2022.

HBO has given the show a 10-episode order, with casting having begun over the summer.

‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel ‘House of the Dragon’ Adds Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy

“Game of Thrones” prequel “House of the Dragon” has found more Targaryens.

The HBO series has added three more key players to its cast: Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy and Matt Smith.

Cooke, known from Amazon’s “Sound of Metal,” is set to star as Alicent Hightower, the daughter of Hand of the King Otto Hightower who was raised in the Red Keep, close to the king and his inner circle. Described as “the most comely woman in the Seven Kingdoms,” Hightower has both “courtly grace and a keen political acumen.”

D’Arcy will star as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, the king’s first-born, pure Valyrian-blooded child who is a dragonrider. Some say Rhaenyra was “born with everything… but she was not born a man.”

Smith is set to play Prince Daemon Targaryen, King Viserys’ younger brother and heir to the throne. Described as a “peerless warrior and a dragonrider, Daemon possesses the true blood of the dragon. But it is said that whenever a Targaryen is born, the gods toss a coin in the air…”

Smith, Cooke and D’Arcy will join Paddy Considine, who was previously announced as King Viserys Targaryen.
