In a recent interview with Deadline, HBO’s President of Programming Casey Bloys revealed the target release date for the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel, titled House of the Dragon. “My guess is sometime in 2022,” said Bloys as he explains that development of the show is still in its very early stages and so it would be difficult to be more specific than that. Work has already begun between George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal, whose previous works include Rampage and Hercules.

Focusing on House Targaryen some 300 years prior to the Game of Thrones timeline, the story will be based on Martin’s novel Fire & Blood, which shines more light onto the dragon-raising ancestors of Daenerys Targaryen. Explaining that “it’s a big, complicated show,” Bloys said that there’s currently no casting information yet, but showrunner Miguel Sapochnik and executive procuders Martin and Vince Gerardis — who have all worked on the original Game of Thrones series — will all be returning to aid Condal on the show.

“For me for right now, I think getting House of the Dragon on the air will be the number one priority,” said Bloys. “There are no other blinking green lights or anything like that. Sometime down the road who knows, but there are no immediate plans. We are all focusing on House of the Dragon.”

Fans of the series should definitely stay tuned as more updates are due to roll in.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Marvel has released early synopses for The Eternals and the Doctor Strange sequel.
