Almost as soon as it pulled the plug on one “Game of Thrones” prequel, as we reported Tuesday, HBO gave the go-ahead to another “GoT” prequel.
The AP reports that the cable channel announced Tuesday that it has given a 10-episode order to “House of the Dragon.” The series is set 300 years before the events of “Game of Thrones.”
“The prequel is based on George R.R. Martin’s ‘Fire & Blood,’ HBO said. The new drama was co-created by Martin and Ryan Condal, whose credits include ‘Colony,'” the AP reports. “It will focus on House Targaryen, made famous in ‘Game of Thrones’ by Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys and her fearsome dragons.”
HBO programming president Casey Bloys announced plans for “House of the Dragon” during Tuesday’s presentation for HBO Max.
