House of the Dragon

"House of the Dragon" is an American fantasy drama television series created by George R. R. Martin and Ryan Condal for HBO. It serves as a prequel to "Game of Thrones" (2011–2019), set approximately 100 years after the Targaryen conquest and nearly 200 years before the events of the original series. The show explores the history of House Targaryen, focusing on the "Dance of the Dragons," a devastating civil war over succession. Condal and Miguel Sapochnik served as showrunners for the first season, which is based on parts of Martin's book "Fire & Blood" (2018).

"House of the Dragon" received a straight-to-series order in October 2019. Filming began in April 2021 in the United Kingdom, and the series premiered on August 21, 2022, with a ten-episode first season. It was well-received for its character development, visual effects, writing, musical score by Ramin Djawadi, and performances. However, critics noted issues with pacing and dark lighting in some scenes. Following its successful debut, HBO renewed the series for a second season, which premiered on June 16, 2024, with eight episodes.
