House of the Dragon – Everything we know

House of the Dragon is the first Game of Thrones spin-off and prequel based on the Targaryen family's beginning and end.

The first spin-off and prequel to the series Game of Thrones will be titled House of the Dragon. It is going to focus on the reign of the Targaryen dynasty. Also, last year, another spin-off set in the world of Westeros was approved and announced. It will be based on the novels Tales of Dunk and Egg by George R. R. Martin.

In the latest news, HBO has announced the addition of two more actors to play the young version of two major characters in the House of the Dragon series.

In the show, Alcock will play Prince Rainier Targaryen’s youthful version and D’Arcy will play the character’s adult version. Kerry will also play the youthful role of Alicent Hightower, whose adult role in the spin-off of Game of Thrones is Olivia Cooke.

What is the story House of the Dragon about?

As opposed to The Long Night, which fills in the blanks of some of the most remote and obscure myths of Westeros, The House of the Dragon is an adaptation of the first volume of the 700-page novel Fire and Blood; a spin-off book by Martin detailing the Targaryen dynasty’s 300-year reign over Westeros.

The House of the Dragon is led by Martin, Ryan Kandal, and Miguel Sapochnik. Kandal wrote House of the Dragon, and Sapochnik directed acclaimed action episodes such as Hardhome and Battle of the Bastards while working on the science fiction show Colony. The phrase “House of the Dragon” appears only once in Martin’s books, in the first chapter of the Daenerys Targaryen character from Game of Thrones. In this scene, Danny is preparing for her wedding to Khal Drogo with a boiling hot bath.


Milly Alcock and Emily Kerry

Milly Alcock, who starred in Reckoning and The Gloaming, and Emily Kerry, who starred in “Get Even“, Wonder Woman, and Tomb Raider, are two new actors who have been added to the cast of the Game of Thrones spin-off.

According to the descriptions of these two important characters in the series House of the Dragon, Rainier Targaryen is the first child of the king who has pure Valerian blood and rides a dragon. Yet, many believe that Rainier was born with everything, but was never born a man. Alicent Hightower is the daughter of Otto Hightower, described as the king and most beautiful woman in seven climates.


In addition, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Reese Witherspoon, Paddy Considine, Steve Toussaint, Sonoya Mizuno, Fabien Frankel, Milly Alcock, Graham McTavish, Emily Kerry, Ryan Kerr, Jefferson Hall, David Horowitz, are among the actors who will appear in the series House of the Dragon and will play roles.

In fact, there is 300 years difference between the events of House of the Dragon and those of GOT. The focus of the show will be on the beginning and end of the Targaryen dynasty. We are going to see the story of A Dance with Dragon, which includes the civil war.

HBO has already ordered a full season of the series, which will air on HBO in 2022. The first season will consist of ten episodes.
