The upcoming prequel to the recently-ended live-action Game of Thrones series, House of the Dragon, looks to be released in 2022.
In a recent interview with Deadline, HBO President of Programming Casey Bloys estimates that, while the team “is starting writing”, the show will be released “sometime in 2022”.
Bloys also stated that House of the Dragon will be a priority item for the TV network to be released, despite it being among four potential GoT spinoff series to be created (one of which saw the departure of potential lead Naomi Watts, and was cancelled last October).
“For me for right now, I think getting House of the Dragon on the air will be the number one priority,” Bloys told Deadline. “There are no other blinking green lights or anything like that. Sometime down the road who knows, but there are no immediate plans. We are all focusing on House of the Dragon.”
House of the Dragon draws inspiration from the Fire & Blood spinoff novel to A Song of Ice and Fire written by George R.R. Martin, who is penning the show’s story alongside Ryan Condal. Condal will then serve as the series showrunner alongside Emmy award-winning GoT director Miguel Sapochnik.
House of the Dragon will be streamed on the upcoming HBO Max service when it releases in 2022.
