In the wake of the somewhat disappointing and rushed series finale of Game of Thrones, many of the shows fans have been left heartbroken without their favorite show. But fans can now rejoice as luckily HBO has decided to greenlight a spinoff show!
Before the series finale was even aired there was talk of a prequel spinoff being in the works. RR Martin even blogged about the proposed spinoff and the show was expected to cover the first white walker uprising. Set to star actress Naomi Watts, the pilot was already being filmed before the end of Game of Thrones had been seen. When the original series finally ended, fans could still hold on to the hope that a spinoff was coming. But when HBO announced that those plans had been scrapped and the proposed spin-off would not be made fans lost all hope. Lucky Christmas came early and HBO followed the announcement of the original spinoffs cancellation with some good news and told fans that a different spinoff had been greenlit.
So what will the new spin-off be about? Well, the new show will explore the history of the house Targaryen and will be set a full 1000 years in the past and during the Huse TArgaryans conquest of the kingdoms. The new spinoff will basically be an adaption of Martin’s book ‘Fire and Blood’ and is title ‘House of Dragon’.
The show will explore the lives of the original Targaryen Kings and queens and even explore the building of the great iron throne. A lot of fan questions about the origin of the kingdoms will be answered in this series and the best part is there will be loads more dragons!
HBO has already committed to the series and has ordered a brand new first season that is due to begin filming soon. While there is still no word yet about who is set to star in the show, fans of the story and waiting with bated breath and cannot wait to see the series as it explores the conquest of the 7 kingdoms by House Targaryen. There will be A LOT of dragons in this series so hopefully, all the CGI work needed doesn’t stall production and the show will be released quickly.
Sadly because the new spinoff will be set 1000 years before the storyline of the original show this means that none of our favorite characters and stars will be returning for the new show. We cannot wait to see who will be playing the lead of Aegon 1 Targaryen and the rest of the family for this one
