Mere hours after it was revealed that the already shot pilot for a “Game of Thrones” spin-off had been scrapped, HBO used the WarnerMedia conference line-up to confirm it has ordered its other spin-off in the works to series.
“House of the Dragon” will be set three hundred years before the events of the main show and is based on author George R. R. Martin’s novel “Fire and Blood”. The new prequel is written by Ryan Condal (“Colony”) and was originally developed by Bryan Cogman and Martin. Miguel Sapochnik will also executive produce.
The events in the new series will eventually lead up to The Dance of the Dragons, a massive civil war in the Seven Kingdoms held between two rival branches of House Targaryen.
The series is co-created by @GRRMSpeaking and Ryan Condal. Miguel Sapochnik will partner with Condal as showrunner and will direct the pilot and additional episodes. Condal will be writing the series. pic.twitter.com/9ttMzElgXm
