House Of The Dragon teaser: Game of Thrones spin-off dates back 200 years before “the fall of the throne”

The Game of Thrones season 8 finale may have disappointed viewers, but there might be hope for redemption. HBO Max released the first teaser for House Of The Dragon on Tuesday, which is a spin-off of the fantasy series, based on the books by George RR Martin. The new series takes place 200 years before “the fall of the throne”.

“Gods, Kings, Fire and Blood,” Matt Smith’s character Prince Daemon Targaryen declares in a voiceover as we see swift shots of the sea, battles, and plans for new characters. “Dreams didn’t make us kings, dragons did,” he concludes, as the one-minute teaser cuts through the logo and title, which shows the Game of Thrones branding.

House of the Dragon is co-created by Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik, who will also direct several episodes.

The cast includes Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen, Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, and Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower.

The first season of House Of The Dragon will consist of 10 episodes. It will arrive in 2022.
