House Of The Dragon: HBO Gives Straight To Series Order For Game Of Thrones Prequel

Hours after it was reported that the Naomi Watts-led Game of Thrones prequel pilot would not be moving forward, HBO have announced that their other prequel project from George R. R. Martin alongside Ryan Condal, has been given a straight-to-series order and will be titled House Of The Dragon.


The prequel, which is based on George R. R. Martin’s novel Fire & Blood, is set three-hundred years before the events of the flagship series, which tracks the beginning and the end of House Targaryen.


HBO programming president Casey Bloys had this to say during the presentation of HBO Max about the project:

The Game of Thrones universe is so rich with stories. We look forward to exploring the origins of House Targaryen and the earlier days of Westeros along with Miguel, Ryan and George.


Martin and Condal will be writing the script for the ten-episode series, with Miguel Sapochnik on board to direct the pilot as well as additional episodes. Condal and Sapochnik will serve as co-showrunners, while Vince Gerardis will serve as executive producer on the project.
