HBO’s Game of Thrones either went out with a bang or a thud, depending on how you viewed the series finale episode. Fans are at odds when it comes to their opinions of the show and, for some time, even petitioned HBO to reshoot and rewrite the finale episode or even the finale season. Despite being at odds, all fans can agree that they desire more Game of Thrones on their screen. HBO responded with the spinoff show, House of the Dragon, which is slowly headed for production. The network shared a first look at some images for the new series.
George R. R. Martin’s House of the Dragon will focus on the history of the Targaryens, which are the dragon flying and loving house of Game of Thrones. The above visual art shares some of the first images of the dragons that we will encounter on the series.
Based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood, the series will tell the story of House Targaryen (a.k.a. the House that gave us the Mother of Dragons herself, Daenerys Targaryen) and take place 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
Paddy Considine (HBO’s The Third Day and The Outsider) will be playing King Viserys Targaryen. Viserys was chosen by the lords of Westeros to succeed the Old King, Jaehaerys Targaryen, at the Great Council at Harrenhal. A warm, kind, and decent man, Viserys only wishes to carry forward his grandfather’s legacy, but as we’ve learned from Game of Thrones, good men do not necessarily make for great kings.
