Before Covid it was known that there was at least 4 spin-offs from
Game of Thrones in the works.
I’ve heard that one has been cancelled, but 3 is plenty.
Incredibly, Author George R. Martin himself once confessed he didn’t know if Game of Thrones itself would even get past it’s initial pilot show.
Now it’s become an industry.
House of the Dragon looks like it’s going is the first to hit the screen on HBO.
Another large Cast. Hopefully not as large as Game of Thrones whereby I sometimes needed a chart to see who belonged where???
Most of the Cast is not well known to North American audiences. Mainly European/British actors. BUT that never affected Game of Thrones a bit whose Casting was brilliant.
No shortage of posters either.
“House of the Dragon is an upcoming American fantasy drama television series created by George R. R. Martin and Ryan J. Condal for HBO. It is a prequel to the television series Game of Thrones (2011–2019) and is based on Martin’s 2018 novel Fire & Blood. The series is set before the events of A Game of Thrones and chronicles the beginning of the end of House Targaryen. House of the Dragon received a straight-to-series order in October 2019 with casting beginning in July 2020 and principal photography beginning in April 2021 in the United Kingdom. The first season of the series is scheduled
to air in 2022 and will consist of ten episodes.”
10 initial episodes – the usual.
If the Dragon doesn’t fly after 10 episodes it’s a bust.
I’m sure it will.
We’ll soon see.
