There’s a major development in HBO’s Game of Thrones’ prequel, House of the Dragons.

The network has begun casting for the new series, which is based on George R. R. Martin’s Fire and Blood. Published in 2018, the book provides a history of House Targaryen set 300 years before the events in Game of Thrones.

House of the Dragons is being co-created by showrunner Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik. Considered as a Game of Thrones veteran, Sapochnik was the director behind some of the most memorable episodes in the show like Battle of the Bastards and The Winds of Winter. He will also be directing the pilot episode of the prequel series.

Not too many details have been revealed yet about the GoT spinoff and the casting. HBO is targeting a 2022 release date.

Game of Thrones ended its 8-season run in 2019, leaving the majority of its fans disappointed by how everything turned out in the end. However, before the disaster that was the last 2 seasons, GoT was hailed by many as the best show on TV. So, there’s no question if fans (or should we say former fans) would give this prequel a try.
