HBO first confirmed House of the Dragon last fall and no news regarding production has been released since then, until now. The new series will take place 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones, and it is said that it will be centered around House Targaryen. A press release released by HBO shared:
"Based on George R.R. Martin's 'Fire & Blood,' the series, which is set 300 years before the events of 'Game of Thrones,' tells the story of House Targaryen. Miguel Sapochnik will direct the pilot and additional episodes. Condal and Sapochnik will partner as showrunners on the series, which will be written by Condal."
Although there have been no updates as to when the show will officially be released, HBO programming president Casey Bloys has told Variety:
"My guess is we'll see it on the air in '22."
As for now there have been no updates made as to who the cast members will be. However, fans are more than thrilled that the process has begun!
