HBO will never fully say goodbye to the world of Game of Thrones.
After reports earlier on Tuesday that the prequel we all thought was happening is no longer happening, HBO officially announced that the network picked up House of the Dragon, a different rumored Game of Thrones prequel series chronicling the rise of House Targaryen, which boasts Daenerys and also Jon Snow as members.
The show, of which 10 episodes have already been ordered, is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones, and is based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire and Blood books. It’s co-created by Martin and Colony showrunner Ryan Condal, with Condal and Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik partnering as showrunners.
“The Game of Thrones universe is so rich with stories,” Bloys said. “We look forward to exploring the origins of House Targaryen and the earlier days of Westeros along with Miguel, Ryan, and George.”
There’s no word yet on when House of the Dragon will be coming to HBO.
