HBO announced that its most anticipated Game of Thrones prequel, “House of the Dragon,” will commence airing on Aug. 21.
The Prequel is set 200 years before the GOT, a medieval fantasy series that became a global phenomenon during its eight-season run.
The 10-episode series will run along the lines of “Fire & Blood,” a George R.R. Martin book, and will narrate the story of House Targaryen, said the HBO.
The network also subtly mentioned “House of the Dragon” at an event in 2019 to stir enthusiasm and intrigue in the audience. The drama will air on HBO itself.
The Screen running cast includes Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Sonoya Mizuno, Fabien Frankel, and Rhys Ifans star.
The plot revolves around the following beastly structured characters:
Viserys (Paddy Considine), chosen to succeed the King, Jaehaerys Targaryen, is a warm, kind, and decent man. He wishes to carry forward his family’s legacy. But good men do not necessarily make for great kings.
Prince Daemon (Matt Smith), The younger brother of King Viserys, is a peerless warrior and a dragon ride. He possesses the blood of the dragon.
Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke), the daughter of the Hand of the King, possesses both courtly grace and keen political insight.
Princess Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) is The king’s first-born child. Valyrian blood runs through her veins.
