Ever since the television mammoth Game of Thrones wrapped its last season fans have been waiting for any sort of updates that were promised along with 5 spinoff shows that were intended to exist within the same fictional world of Westeros.
Game of Thrones is based on a series of collective novels called A Song of Ice and Fire. Written by George R R Martin this odyssey of the battle for throne was converted into a television series by Daniel Brett Weiss and David Benioff.
Game of Thrones released its very first season in 2011 generating positive reviews which led to a massive fandom and 7 more seasons. The last two seasons of the show were criticized for missing out on subject material and instead focused on rush endings.
The show ran out of content after season six because only six books or novels were present in the series leaving writers of the show to create their own ending which resulted in negative reviews.
After the end of the show, the creators announced that there were 5 more shows planned to extend the fictional universe of Westeros but will not meet the exact same fate as the parent show did because of missing content.
The writing began on the first show and sometime later Naomi Scott was cast in the lead role. A couple of months later the filming for the pilot took off but the creators had to call it off as there were not so many interesting moments present in the story.
Soon after the cancellation of the first show HBO greenlit the second show titled “House of The Dragon“. With writers penning down the script and production pacing forward with the casting of the show.
Paddy Considine as King Viserys I, Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower, and Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen were cast along with Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, and Sonoya Mizuno.
The filming is scheduled to begin this April and the show is expected to drop on HBO next year.
