HBO has booked a “Game of Thrones” spin-off, House of Dragons, according to foreign media. It is reported that the prequel script by Ryan Condal (The Colony screenwriter) and the original author George W. Bush, the original author of the film. R. R. Martin will serve as co-producer.
The play, which will be adapted from Martin’s 2019 book Fire and Blood, tells the story of the Tangerine family during the Civil War, 300 years before Game of Thrones.
HBO executive Casey Bloys made the announcement at an event at HBO Max, the streaming service that will be launched next May. Just hours earlier, HBO had been accused of canceling a Game of Thrones spin-off starring Naomi Watts.
Part of the reason HBO’s push for “House of The Dragon” seems to be that there is a well-established history written by Martin as the main story.
It is unclear when the spin-off will air.
