The first leaks of the Game of Thrones prequel series are here


There may never be another show that has the same cultural impact as “Game of Thrones”. Back in 2011, when the Fantasy Epic premiered on HBO, Netflix had yet to release original content, Hulu had only been around for a few years and countless other streaming services were still just a reflection of the. eyes of their creators.Even HBO has since turned its streaming solution into a standalone service, and the idea of ​​everyone getting together around the TV on the same night to watch a show is now its own fantasy. But if a show has a chance, it could be “House of the Dragon”.

Considering the state of the world, you’d be forgiven for forgetting that HBO officially confirmed a “Game of Thrones” prequel series called “House of the Dragon” last fall. We know that the series was co-created by George RR Martin and Ryan Condal, and that there will be 10 episodes in season 1.

That’s all HBO was willing to reveal at the time, but almost a year later, the first reports of the show’s production made their way online.

The first leak is from the NSFW Recapped blog, which appears to focus primarily on letting viewers know where they can see naked actors, but, as Polygon points out, has also been the source of several specific leaks in the past. .

As such, it would be foolish to ignore this leak about weekend’s “House of the Dragon”:

“They’re currently playing the lead roles for the Game of Thrones prequel series. There are two female roles: Rhaenyra Targaryen who they’re looking for someone in their late twenties for and Alicent Hightower who should be slightly older. Filming is currently scheduled for next year in the UK and Spain. “

Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen was the daughter of King Viserys I and Queen Alicent Hightower was his stepmother. If you’ve read “Fire & Blood” or spent a lot of time on the various “Game of Thrones” wikis, you probably know these characters, but so as not to spoil the series for anyone, I won’t get in their stories here.

But getting back to the leaks, a second Entertainment Weekly report was released on Monday, citing sources who say HBO has started casting for “House of the Dragon” and that the show will cover the Dance of the Dragons – which was the Targaryen Civil War that happened to highlight Rhaenyra and Alicent.

Taken in tandem, these leaks seem to reveal the plot of the prequel series “Game of Thrones” coming to HBO in 2022. If you want to read ahead and find out what happened to the characters mentioned above, “Fire & Blood: 300 Years Before A Game of Thrones ”covers the Civil War and much more.
