It feels like an eternity ago that we were sitting on the edge of our seat waiting for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones to air on HBO. Now, almost two years later (yes, you read that correctly), we’re finally getting a first look at the show’s prequel, House of the Dragon.
Based on George R. R. Martin’s first Targaryen history book, Fire & Blood: 300 Years Before a Game of Thrones, the series will take place 300 years before Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke’s story. Last September, Martin confirmed there will be dragons (which totally makes sense given the name) in the new series and by the looks of the show’s latest tweet, he wasn’t kidding.
The post, which was shared on Thursday, features two photos of a red dragon (a main character perhaps?) alongside the caption, “Dragons are coming. HouseoftheDragon begins production in 2021.” Oh, how we missed these fire breathers.
