The Game of Thrones spin-off, House of the Dragon, has found its scribes in Claire Kiechel (The OA and Watchmen), Wes Tooke (Colony), and Ti Mikkel. The series will be based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire and Blood will follow the Targaryen family and is set 300 years before Game of Thrones.
Martin and showrunner Ryan Condal both seem very happy with the new team of writers. Martin took to his personal blog to shower the new writing team with compliments and talk about the hard work they’ve already been doing. You can check out what he sai below.
“They sat with Ryan every day in a writer’s room at HBO for months, talking story, going over drafts, giving notes, correcting errors, catching inconsistencies, discussing character and plot, offering ideas and suggestions, filling in gaps, breaking down the episodes to come and drawing up a roadmap for the first season and all the seasons to follow. The House of the Dragon could never have been built without the help of Ti, Claire, and Wes, three terrific young storytellers.”
While I absolutely would have watched the other Game of Thrones spin-off, known to many as Bloodmoon, had it received a series order, I am much more interested in the era of Westeros that will be depicted in House of the Dragon. Martin’s words are reassuring, I just hope the writers and showrunners involved are ready to see the series through until the end (Yeah, I’m talking about you guys D&D).
