Game Of Thrones will soon return to HBO… But of course, it won’t be another season of the ruthless war between the nine noble families of Westeros for control of the Iron Throne.

This is through a spin-off that the American television channel intends to rekindle the flame of what remains to this day its best series. Said spin-off is titled House of the Dragon and offers fans of the original series the opportunity to step back in time to a time when Westeros and Essos were still a homeland for dragons. And who says dragon in GoT necessarily speaks of the house Targaryen which will occupy a central place in the brand new series.

The big icing on the cake remains the active participation of George RR Martin in the realization of the first official spin-off of Game Of Thrones. The author of the original literary work decided to be more than just a consultant. He shoulders the showrunner, Ryan J. Condalboth for the production and for the writing of the new series.

We imagine that Mr. Martin did not really like the liberties taken by David Benioff and DB Weiss on the last seasons of Game Of Thrones. He certainly doesn’t want this to happen again with House of the Dragon.

The production of the series chose the date of August 21, 2022 to air the first episode of the prequel. This will air on HBO and HBO Max in the United States. In France, it is the streaming service from Orange known as OCS which will offer the possibility of following this first episode on the night of August 21 to 22 at 3 a.m.

This broadcast time should come as no surprise to regulars of Game Of Thrones. They had to learn to get up in the middle of the night in order to simultaneously follow the last seasons of GoT. They will therefore be able to resume very soon with this good habit.

It must also be said that the first season of House of the Dragon consists of 10 episodes in total. Each of them should last an average of one hour. With the broadcast rate of one episode per week, the tenth episode of season 1 should be available October 23, 2022.

The events chronicled in the new HBO series position themselves 170 years before the events of Game Of Thrones. Thus, the plot of House of focuses on the civil war known as the The Dance of the Dragons in the work of George RR Martin.

It is also one of the most important episodes in the history of Westeros and the famous Iron Throne. It recounts the events that led to the disappearance of the dragons and led to the fall of House Targaryen. The said war took place following the death of Viserys I. These children Aegon II and Rhaenyra will tear each other apart for their late father’s throne.

The conflict took another turn and saw all Westeros go up in flames when other houses joined the two camps. These include the Starks and the Lanniesters. This internecine war has led the disappearance of almost all of the dragons of House Targaryen. This before Daenerys Targaryen therefore hatched three eggs hundreds of years later.

This story is the one told in the book Fire and Blood of the saga Game Of Thrones. Since House of the Dragon is essentially inspired by the work, we can therefore expect that the new one will take up the same narrative framework.
