Casting is reportedly underway at HBO for House of the Dragon, its Game of Thrones prequel series.
According to Insider, the network has begun casting for House of the Dragon. This is one of the few developments made since the successor show was first announced last year.
In October, HBO revealed that fans could expect a 10-episode “straight-to-series order” for a Targaryan-centric prequel show co-created by Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Condol.
The prequel will be based on George RR Martin’s Fire & Blood books which are set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
Sapochnik will direct the pilot as well as additional episodes throughout the series. The director is best known for his battle-centric instalments including the two most action-packed episodes of Game of Thrones’s final season, “The Long Night” and “The Bells”.
There is no concrete news on when exactly House of the Dragon will air. Last year, the network’s programming president Casey Bloys told Variety that his “guess” is sometime in 2022.
