Just hours after announcing the cancellation of a seperate Game of Thrones spin-off series, HBO has just ordered another prequel series called House of the Dragon.
The new prequel is written by Ryan Condal with original series author George R.R. Martin set to co-executive produce.
The project is based on Martin’s book Fire and Blood which was released earlier this year and details the history of a civil war that rocked House Targaryen 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
HBO executive Casey Bloys made the announcement during a recent event.
According to Entertainment Weekly, House of the Dragon got the green light thanks to the “established history penned by Martin to serve as a backbone for the story”.
We'll have to wait a bit longer to find out when we can expect to see the new series.
