HBO announces Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon

A new Game of Thrones prequel series, House of the Dragon, has been announced by HBO today and will be exclusive in Australia to Foxtel.

House of the Dragon is co-created by GoT author George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal, who will also serve as showrunner.

Based on Martin’s Game of Thrones companion book, ‘Fire & Blood’, the 10-part series is set long before the events of GoT and tells the story of the origins of House Targaryen.

The pilot episode and additional episodes will be directed by frequent GoT director Miguel Sapochnik, who directed acclaimed episodes such as ‘Battle of the Bastards’, ‘Hardhome’ and ‘The Long Night’.
