Here there be Dragon.
Game of Thrones‘ first spinoff, House of the Dragon, is officially in production, HBO announced Monday. In addition, the premium cabler offered the first (albeit sadly dragon-free) photo from the show: Its actors gathered for an in-person, socially distanced table read.
In an interview in February, HBO/HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys told TVLine that the sequel, which will focus on Daenerys Targaryen’s ancestors, would begin production this spring.
“They’re prepping,” Bloys said, adding that showrunners Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan J. Condal “have been writing for a long time” and have drafts of all 10 Season 1 episodes “in various stages.”
