If you thought that the end of Game of Thrones was your last visit to Westeros, the answer is no by a long-shot.
On Friday, HBO ordered a Game of Thrones spin-off, House of the Dragon, straight to series.
The pilot for the first Thrones spin-off, will be a brand-new tale about the Age of Heroes thousands of years before the events of the main series.
HBO executive Casey Bloys made the announcement at an event for HBO Max, AT&T’s streaming service coming May 2020.
The new prequel is written by Ryan Condal (Colony), with George R.R. Martin set to co-executive produce.
The project is based on Martin’s 2019 book Fire and Blood, and is a history of House Targaryen (the ancestors of Daenerys) as they fight through a civil war.
The 10-episode project is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
The goal is to eventually have the events of the new series lead up to The Dance of the Dragons. It’s a major moment in the Seven Kingdoms history, leading to an all out civil war between two rival faction of House Targaryen.
It’s unclear when House of the Dragon is expected to air.
Game of Thrones Season 8 was one of highs and lows—an emotional roller coaster to be precise that left many glum after the death of Daenerys Targaryen.
Many have expressed their eagerness following the spin off announcement.
