It was revealed last month that the show, one of six spin-offs currently in the works from the hugely successful fantasy show, had begun production.
Set 300 years before the timeline of Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon follows the House Targaryen. The series is based on author George R.R. Martin’s novel Fire & Blood, published in 2018.
House of the Dragon is created by Martin, along with showrunners Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan J. Condal, and is scheduled for a 2022 release. The cast includes Paddy Considine, Rhys Ifans, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Sonoya Mizuno, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best and Fabien Frankel.
One of the spin-offs, which has the working title 9 Voyages, is being developed by Bruno Heller and follows Lord Corlys Velaryon, who also features in House of the Dragon.
Another production, 10,000 Ships, focuses on the warrior queen Princess Nymeria from the House Martell, who founded the kingdom of Dorne, roughly 1,000 years before Game of Thrones.
The final prequel spin-off is set in the King’s Landing slum of Flea Bottom, located in the city where characters like Davos Seaworth and Gendry Baratheon were born.
Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen in the hugely successful show, recently gave the spinoffs her blessing in an interview, saying that they were “inevitable”.
