House of the Dragon: Game of Thrones prequel gets production date and first glimpse of dragons

House of the Dragon, the prequel to hit HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones, has finally been given a production date.

The official Game of Thrones Twitter page shared the news that the series will begin production next year.

It also shared two artworks depicting a red dragon, along with the caption: “Dragons are coming. #HouseoftheDragon begins production in 2021.”

House of the Dragon will follow the Targaryen family, one of the former royal houses who once ruled an empire and united the Seven Kingdoms. Their house motto is “fire and blood”.

The show is being adapted from events in author George RR Martin’s book Fire and Blood, which closes on a huge battle known as The Dance of the Dragons.

However, any plot details for the series, which is being created by Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik, are being kept under wraps.

Speaking to YouTube’s Beyond The Trailer last month, Condal said it was essential to him that he and the team working on the show get it right.

“There’s obviously tons of stuff that I could say, I feel like all of it would get me shot or fired,” he said.

“I will say this. I realise the shoulders that I’m standing on here in making this show. I realise the footsteps that I’m walking in – they’re very deep, they’re very intimidating, but I come to the show as not only a huge fan of the original series, but also a fan of the books.”
