Game Of Thrones: Here’s What House Of The Dragon Will Cover

Over the course of 24 hours, we’ve gone from having exactly zero Game of Thrones prequel series in the works to having one series having a straight-to-series order from HBO. The show was called House of the Dragon and was announced to be based on Fire & Blood, which chronicles the history of the Targaryens…but as our own Cam Clark pointed out in an editorial earlier today, that’s a whole lot of history to over…so how would they actually do it?

EW is reporting that the show will cover the period leading up to the iconic Dance of Dragons, aka the Targaryen Civil War that saw Targaryens fighting for the throne, a struggle that led to the House of Targaryen weakened in perpetuity.

It’s unclear just how many seasons they will have leading up to this event, but we know that this first season will run for 10 episodes, and in addition to the Targaryens, there will likely be many familiar houses at play, such as the Stark, Lannisters, Greyjoys, Baratheons, Tyrells and many others. That being said, keep in mind that none are confirmed to be a focus, but in the narrative, they do have a role.

This sounds like it could be cool, but with so many familiar elements at play, I really hope this won’t end up being a familiar retreated of the political struggle and intrigue we saw over the course of several seasons.

What do you think of all this? Does it sound different enough to be its own series? Let us know your thoughts down below!
