Release date for HBO's House Of The Dragon revealed
The series will arrive in 2022.
Premium US network HBO has confirmed the premiere date for its highly-anticipated House of the Dragon series.
The Game of Thrones prequel, set hundreds of years before the events of the main show, is set to arrive sometime in 2022.
This date was revealed in a new trailer which teased some of the biggest new and returning shows coming to HBO and it’s streaming platform HBO Max over the next 24 months.
House of the Dragon will explore the long and bloody history of the Targaryens, one of Westeros’ nine Great Houses alongside Stark, Lannister, Tyrell, Greyjoy and the like.
Paddy Considine will star as King Viserys I described as a “warm, kind, and decent man” who “only wishes to carry forward his grandfather’s legacy” by an official synopsis.
Doctor Who’s Matt Smith will play his younger brother and “peerless warrior” Prince Daemon Targaryen while Oliva Cooke will portray Alicent Hightower, the Hand of the King’s daughter.
Finally, Truthseekers’ Emma D’Arcy will play Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, a fierce dragonrider.
Along with House of the Dragon, that short teaser gave fans a very brief look at Joss Whedon’s new sci-fi/fantasy The Nevers and detective-drama Mare of Easttown starring Kate Winslet.
It also confirmed that new seasons of the acclaimed black comedy Succession and Issa Rae’s Insecure are coming to screens next year.
