Fire Will Reign.
Your long-awaited prequel has arrived. Yes, we are talking about House Of The Dragon. The release date has been announced, and here is everything you need to know about it.
House Of The Dragon takes place 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones. The show follows the events leading up to and during the Targaryen civil conflict, known as the “Dance of the Dragons,” as well as the battle itself.
Let’s talk about the upcoming prequel’s release date.
House Of The Dragon Release Date Is Finally Set For August 2022
Finally, we can’t believe we have a release date for this prequel. Let’s not add to the mystique by getting into it. ‘House Of The Dragon‘ will be released on August 21, 2022. The first season of the prequel will feature ten episodes.
Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Sonoya Mizuno, Fabien Frankel, and Rhys Ifans feature in the show.
With a poster, the streaming platform and the show’s official social media handle announced the release date.
Okay, don’t get too excited; it wasn’t a preview of the forthcoming season, but rather a charming egg. The date 08.21 is written on the fiery egg. Check out the official announcement below.
George R.R. Martin, the author of Game of Thrones, stated in a blog post:
“For what it’s worth, those who have read [my novel] Fire & Blood will realize it contains enough materials for a dozen shows. I can say that there will be dragons. Everyone else has said that, so why not me?”

The Idea Of ‘House Of The Dragon’ Emerged Because Of The Source Material
In addition, here’s what people should know before watching the show. Bloys indicated during the TCAs that the notion to produce the show was influenced by the original material.
He stated to an outlet, “[When] we looked at House of the Dragon, one of the advantages it had, was it had a text from George R.R. Martin and had the Targaryen history. There was a bit more of a roadmap.
It was an easier decision to say, ‘Alright, let’s go straight to series.’ It wasn’t like there was anything glaringly wrong about the pilot; it’s just sometimes these things click and sometimes they don’t.”
Now that we finally know the release date we believe there are going to be more updates in the upcoming days. And we’ll do our best to keep our readers informed.
