Another ‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel Is Announced As One Gets The Axe

Consider this a bad news, even better news scenario. First the bad news, the Game of Thrones prequel with Naomi Watts has not been picked up. That one is done, but we do have another that is confirmed.

Remember our earlier report about a prequel series centering around the House of Targaryen? Well, it has been confirmed by HBO. House of the Dragon will be based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood, the series, which is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones, tells the story of House Targaryen. Miguel Sapochnik will direct the pilot and additional episodes. Ryan Condal and Sapochnik will partner as showrunners on the series, which will be written by Condal.

I will have more on this coming up on Episode 289 of the podcast.
