Back To Westeros: Game of Thrones Prequel Series Confirmed for 2022

It's that time again where we finally have a piece of news that isn't about something getting delayed by the Covid-19 crisis. While everything else is slowly starting to reopen, studios are developing and looking into whatever they can make when things get back to normal again. Yep, these stories will keep happening as the world tries to return to normal. This time, we have an update on one of the Game of Thrones spinoffs.

The series will be known as House of the Dragon and is set to premiere on HBO in 2022. That will be three years after the end of the original series back in 2019. Casting is underway as they search for the series leads. The show is set to follow the rise and fall of the Targaryen family three hundred years prior to the events of the original series. It will be an adaptation of  George R.R. Martin's companion book to the original series, Fire and Blood.  

There is no word yet on who will star in the series but Miguel Sapochnik will return to direct and co-produce the series for HBO. Sapochnik also directed episodes of the original series, his most famous being the Battle of the Bastards. Let's hope that this new show is as exciting as the original series.
