news culture Game of Thrones: good news for the House of the Dragon spinoff, a release date soon to be announced?
The first series to appear since the end of Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon is highly anticipated and should see the light of day this year since filming has been completed for a week now.
Filming wrapped up, RR Martin delighted
It is one of the most anticipated series of 2022 and for good reason: House of the Dragon is a spin-off of Game Of Thrones, focusing on the Targaryen family. Her emblem animal is the dragon and is portrayed in GoT by Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke). A powerful family, whose reign over the region of Westeros will be told through House of the Dragon. And it’s coming soon! The series has finished filming and it is George RR Martin, author of the Iron Throne and consultant on the spinoff, who indicated it on notablog blog. The ten episodes of the series are filmed and it seems that they delight the main interested party:
I saw a few passages and I love them (…) The writing, the direction and the acting, everything seems to kill. I hope you will like them as much as I do. Hats off to Ryan and Miguel, and of course their team.
Obviously, RR Martin specifies that there is still post-production work to be done, such as special effects, but he already seems under the spell. So much so that he has already published an unofficial poster of the series visible above.
House of the Dragon: release date
But then, do we have a release date for House of the Dragon? Well not really since the producers want to be cautious. If the filming finished is synonymous with good news, the head of content for HBO then declared that he would advance a date once everything was finalized. Blame it on a climate conducive to randomness and postponements. Even so, House of the Dragon should be released in 2022 if everything comes together.
A much less certain future that affects the other series derived around Game of Thrones. In another interview, Casey Bloys indicates that the embryonic projects announced in 2021 (Dunk&Egg, 10,000 Ships and 9 Travels) are much more uncertain: in their beginnings, these series were mentioned by HBO because they “stimulated their creative streak and not to fulfill a quota“.
