Game of Thrones Prequel Series House of the Dragon Ordered at HBO
 

Quote:

The world of “Game of Thrones” will live on at HBO.

A prequel series based on the “Game of Thrones” companion book “Fire & Blood” has been ordered straight-to-series at the premium cabler. The series will be titled “House of the Dragon.” Set 300 years before the events of “Game of Thrones,” the series tells the story of House Targaryen. Frequent “Game of Thrones” director Miguel Sapochnik will direct the pilot and additional episodes.

HBO has given the show a 10-episode order. George R.R. Martin co-created the series with Ryan Condal. Sapochnik and Condal will serve as co-showrunners and will also serve as executive producers along with Martin and Vince Gerardis.

This marks Sapochnik’s first project as part of an HBO overall deal where he will develop and produce content for both HBO and HBO Max. He has directed six episodes of “Game of Thrones,” including “Hardhome,” “Battle of the Bastads,” and “Winds of Winter.”

They canceled ('decided not to pick up) a second GoT series in development. Not sure what happened there.

I really doubt they can resurrect the magic of the first few seasons of the original series. We shall see.

Well, this is based on a book. And the book was pretty compelling. If they stay close to Martin's story they should be OK. They went wrong when they ran out of Martin's stuff to copy.

Awesome, more excuses for Martin to not focus on finishing the books!

Seriously. If he's a consultant to this show, then the series will never be finished.

At this point you have to wonder how much damage they've done to the brand with that lame final season. I guess i'll watch it but i'm prepared to walk away early.

I was at a book store the other day and saw this book (Fire and Blood) in the George R.R. Martin section, and didn't know what it was. I have really fallen off on my reading in recent years, didn't even know this existed. At least this series will have a book to go off of, so they hopefully don't repeat the mistakes of the final season.
