What is the actual House Of The Dragon Release Date? Here in the blog, you will find all you need to know about the new Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon, including its premiere date and plot. The well-known series “Game of Thrones” became one of the most popular television programs in the world after its premiere in 2011. While the series came to a controversial conclusion in 2019, its success has led HBO to consider a number of sequels, spinoffs, and prequels to continue exploring the world of Westeros.
Even before Game of Thrones finished, HBO began developing many ideas, including a prequel set during the Age of Heroes, in order to keep things moving. The project — conceived by Jane Goldman (Kingsman) and George R.R. Martin – obtained a pilot order with Naomi Watts heading the cast, but it was not brought up to series. Despite the failure of the first attempt, HBO has not given up and is continuing forward with House of the Dragon.
Martin co-created House of the Dragon, which he developed with Ryan Condal (Colony). Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik will serve as co-showrunner alongside Condal. Following in the footsteps of House Targaryen, House of the Dragon will be set hundreds of years before the actions and happenings of Game of Thrones, and here’s all we know about the cast, storyline, and release date so far.
House Of The Dragon Release Date:
When is the House Of The Dragon Release Date? HBO says in the teaser trailer that the show’s ten episodes will premiere in 2022. Given that filming only began this past spring and that no official release date has been established, a release in the second half of 2022 appears most feasible. It’s also worth noting that the show is still prone to pandemic production issues, which might cause further delays—filming has already been halted in the UK due to a positive Covid-19 test among the staff.

House Of The Dragon Story Details:
House of the Dragon’s initial logline was that it would track the beginning of the demise of House Targaryen, based on elements of George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood book. The show appears to be following the build-up to, the action of, and the consequences from the Targaryen Civil War famously known as The Dance of the Dragons, rather than Aegon’s Conquest, which happened about 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
The teaser trailer for House of the Dragon reveals that the show is set 200 years before Game of Thrones, giving fans a chance to see House Targaryen at its apex: the powerful rulers of Westeros, with several different Targaryens still alive and over a dozen dragons still roaming the land. This is in sharp, stark contrast to Daenerys, who is ostensibly the last of the House Targaryen with only three dragons in Game of Thrones. The difficulties between Rhaenyra, Daemon, and Alicent’s family were also exposed in the trailer. The trailer is narrated by Matt Smith’s Daemon, who chillingly states that the dragons are what made the Targaryens powerful, implying that whoever controls the majority of the creatures has a better chance of winning the terrible civil war.
House Of The Dragon Filming:
The first season of ten episodes began principal photography in April 2021. The majority of the series is shot in the United Kingdom. Filming took place in Cornwall, England, during the last week of April 2021. Parts of the first season will also be shot in Spain and California, according to Production List. The first production to shoot under the label of Warner Bros. Leavesden Studio’s new virtual production stage was House of the Dragon. Production was halted for two days on July 18, 2021, due to a positive COVID-19 case. House of the Dragon is said to be filmed in the region of Caceres in western Spain from October 11 and 21, 2021, according to Spanish sources. The series was shot at Monsanto Castle in Portugal from October 26 to 31.
