“Game of Thrones” was a massive hit for HBO, and the dense fantasy series based on the novels of author George R.R. Martin continues with multiple spinoffs, including the next big series, the “House of The Dragon.”
Instead of a continuation, “House of The Dragon” is based on the Martin novel “Fire & Blood,” focusing on House Targaryen taking place 200 years before the events of the original show. This will bring us to a different era of Westeros where dragon riders aren’t uncommon and allows for a deeper dive into the mythology of the series.
HBO has released the first teaser trailer for the upcoming prequel, which you can watch below.
The previously announced cast members consist of Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen, Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower, Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon (The Sea Snake), Eve Best as Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower (The Hand of the King), Sonoya Mizuno as Mysaria, Graham McTavish as Ser Harrold Westerling, David Horovitch as Grand Maester Mellos, Jefferson Hall as Lord Jason Lannister, Ryan Corr as Ser Harwin’ Breakbones’ Strong, Mattew Needham as Larys Strong, Bill Paterson as Lord Lyman Bessbury, Gavin Spokes as Lord Lyonel Strong, Milly Alcock as Young Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, and Emily Carey as Young Alicent Hightower.
HBO adds a few more names today, with Will Johnson as Ser Vaemond Velaryon, John Macmillan as Ser Laenor Velaryon, Savannah Steyn as Lady Laena Velaryon, and Theo Nate as Laenor Velaryon.
Multiple spinoffs are in the works, including the fan-favorite “Tales of Dunk & Egg” alongside animated projects.
“House of Dragon” will debut next year on HBO and HBO Max.
