House Of The Dragon is one of the most anticipated programs ever made. This new series takes place during a time when Westeros was ruled by Targaryens and features many familiar faces from Game of Thrones such as Daenerys I Targaryen or Cersei Lannister.
Premier Of House Of The Dragon
At the 2020 Television Critics Association press tour, HBO programming president Casey Bloys estimated that House of the Dragon would arrive in two years. It will debut in 2022. Every episode will be about 45 minutes long. It will have a casting budget of $2 million per episode and production costs of $15-20 million per season.
This is the long answer to one of the most vexing questions every Thrones fan has asked: When is Game of Thrones going to come back?
The story went as follows: House Of The Dragon was originally slated for a 2019 release with 13 episodes, but now it only has 10 episodes for each half-season. Each season will run for 10 weeks or so and are around 45 minutes in length.
This episode will take place seven generations before Game of Thrones. And follows The Iron Throne as it spits out dynasties after each other – kings being murdered by their sons, who in turn is killed by their grandsons. This will be a fascinating look at the early days of Westeros and its history.
So, there you have it! HBO has finally announced the series and its premiere date. Now it’s up to you to keep your fingers crossed for the show’s release!
Note: HBO has not yet confirmed the exact date of House of The Dragon’s premiere; however, it is expected to come one day after Game of Thrones season 8 airs.
What can we expect from House Of The Dragon?
It’s the question on everyone’s lips. After all, it’s been almost two years since the dramatic conclusion of Season 6, and Season 7 is just around the corner. Well, fear not, dear readers, because we have your answers right here! From who may die to whether there will be a happy ending for our favourite characters—with whom no one would dare spoil—our list has you covered. Let us help you prepare for what is sure to be another epic season of Game of Thrones!
Season 6 of HBO’s TV adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s masterpiece series, A Song of Ice and Fire, has come and gone. Anyone who has been following the story thus far can attest to the fact that there is no shortage of intrigue, drama, and cliff-hanging twists in this world—and they’re definitely not done with it yet! There will also be plenty more romance (since Daenerys Targaryen got married already), action-packed set pieces that will make our jaw drop, and everything else you can possibly imagine in the next season.
Here’s all you need to know about next season
Let’s do this in order, shall we? First up, the good guys that are still alive and kicking.
- There is no one more die-hard than Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke), who we have seen go through more turmoil than any other character. She has her dragons to thank for that, after all. However, the Mother of Dragons is going to have to make some hard decisions in the next season. There are a lot of problems brewing for her, as she has just lost one of her most trusted advisers after he was waylaid outside of Meereen. Dany’s quest for the Iron Throne is now more difficult than ever, especially since she’s married to someone who neither trusts nor respects her.
Next up is Nysa Arryn (Tatiana Maslany)
- It seems like she could be the show’s new favourite character after the Season 6 finale. It turns out there’s more to play in that game-changing moment than it seemed at first glance. We still don’t know exactly what role she will play in the coming season, but we can’t wait to find out. To be honest, we’re dying to see what happens when The Red Viper’s children finally cross paths with her!
Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey)
- Another pair of siblings who are doing well right now. They’ve been planning the destruction of anyone who stands against them and seems guaranteed to take the Iron Throne by force if they have to. Their motives are simple: they want to live in a world that is free from pain and suffering, whereas their enemies want to keep the system intact because it protects them. You can tell that the plan won’t be easy to pull off, especially for Cersei because of her mother and the religious cult with her.
- The Targaryens (Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, and Iain Glen) are still around after their three-season curse! They survived by hiding in plain sight as dragons with all of their power locked away beneath their shells. In the Game of Thrones Season 7 trailer, it’s apparent that Dany is going to put her trust in a select few people. It’s almost like she’s turning over a new leaf after she returned from seeing Jon Snow in Winterfell and the creation of the White Walkers who seem to be coming for them next.
The Lannisters and the Martells (Nell Tiger Free, Karl Davies, and Aimee Richardson)
- Still standing strong. The two houses are having a rivalry of their own as they try to outdo each other. A bunch of Lannister soldiers rescued Daenerys in Season 6, but now they want her throne for themselves. If you add the Martells to this game plan, it’s a recipe for disaster.
- Then there’s Sam Tarly (John Bradley-West), who has his own issues to deal with after he found out he was actually a Targaryen. His mother is alive and kicking, and she wants to make him her new baby daddy. However, the worst news for Sam is that he’s going to have to step up as the leader of the Night’s Watch. It looks like we’ll also be getting Jon Snow flashbacks in this season as well!
- Sam is also BFFs with Gilly (Hannah Murray) now, so it’s nice to see that they still have each other despite everything else going on in their lives. The pair even seem to be taking on a storyline for themselves.
In conclusion, the House of The Dragon will be coming out sometime in 2022 to an expected 20 million viewers. The creators of Game of Thrones are working diligently to ensure that the show is as good as it was before. Although there is no specific date yet, creators have confirmed that “the first episode will come out anytime in 2022”
Your patience will be rewarded! Trust me, you won’t regret waiting around for this show!
