HBO is planning the House of the Dragon for 2022

The production-plan is based on George R.R. Martin’s ‘Fire & Blood’ book, a history of House Targaryen set 300 years ere the events described in Game of Thrones, which finished its eight-season run in 2019.

In the world’s history of A Song of Ice and Fire, the Dance of the Dragons began over a royal-succession conflict between Rhaenyra and Alicent. King Viserys, his wife Targaryen, and I never have a son, so he delegated his eldest daughter Rhaenyra his successor to the Iron Throne — breaking the fixed patrilineal succession that was traditional at the time.

As the showrunner, along with Miguel Sapochnik, Ryan Condal is connected to the series. He helmed Game of Thrones episodes like The Battle of Bastards and The Winds of Winter successfully.

It has been reported that Sapochnik will direct and will look after the pilot and additional episodes in the show. HBO network has promised ten episodes of the series.

Martin’s book covers 150 years and includes the beginning and destruction of many leaders in the Westeros, but it is not clear who has been cast for which roles so far.

The upcoming show ‘House of the Dragon’ will replace HBO’s previously announced prequel project, starring Naomi Watts.

Until the further announcement, this casting is just a buzz. Still, a leading news tabloid has a very reliable record for its casting rumors, including reporting Henry Cavill and Anya Chalotra several weeks early for The Witcher and reporting on the casting of Naomi Watts in the, since canceled, Game of Thrones spin-off series about the Long Night. After reaching out to HBO on the upcoming series’ pre-production and casting decisions, the network was unable to comment at the time of publication.

Whatever the inevitable plot of House of the Dragon, it will still be a couple of years before we get to watch it. According to one of the HBO chief Casey Bloys, Variety from before the COVID-19 pandemic forced Hollywood to shut down production across the world. In an interview, he best guessed that House of the Dragon would arrive in 2022.

People Reviewed the game Of Thrones

One of the viewers commented that he enjoyed the first seasons of GoT. The different storylines, excellent conversation and performances, the intimacy, mystery, and the unbelievable costumes/scenery/back-story, made him excited to watch, but he is disappointed with end seasons.

Whereas one of them has fears with this show that it’ll be more of the “Game of Stares” leaning on a giant special effects budget of the latter half of the series. Which was right in its ways, but was not what I came to the show for initially.

People Are Still Irritated With Last Season

Nikolaj addresses the issue of public reaction to its last season and the petition over it. He recently, in an interview, said, “Every season, we had huge controversies. From Ned Stark being killed, ‘I’m never going to watch that piece of the shit show again!’ And then there was the Red Wedding.

And obviously, the end. I feel so lucky to have met so many fans of the show and to realize this show has brought so many people together. I was watching it, loving it. So obviously, it comes to an end, it’s going to piss you off no matter what. It’s the end! But at the end of the day, it’s okay. If you hated the ending, if you loved it, that’s great. Just don’t call people names.”
