Despite the controversial Game of Thrones series finale in 2019, the world of Westeros is not going away any time soon. Various spinoff productions from the HBO fantasy drama are in “development,” but only one is currently be produced.
In a Deadline article, HBO’s content chief Casey Bloys refused to provide any extraneous details (although he earnestly prompted to) about one such spinoff show: House of the Dragon. All Bloys has confirmed was that the show is expected to premiere sometime in 2022.
Bloys also stated that House of the Dragon is the only spinoff being produced at this time, even though other media reports may say something different. In the article, Bloys says the perks of “being connected with Game of Thrones” means anything your teams do become news; scripts that are pitched and/or scripts that are approved for development are reported, and people assume this means that these shows are being produced.
Although his lips are sealed to specific details, Bloys promises, “Nothing else is greenlit but a lot of interesting [projects in] development.”
Earlier this year, Deadline published an article about the potential Game of Thrones offshoots fans can expect to see someday. These include Flea Bottom, 9 Voyages aka Sea Snake, 10,000 Ships, an animated series, and an adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s Dunk and Egg tales. You can check out Bookstr’s coverage of this news here, as well as our article about the first images released from the set.
Stars Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, and Olivia Cooke are a few of the cast members confirmed to star in House of the Dragon. The show is based on Martin’s book Fire & Blood, which primarily focuses on the Targaryen dynasty 300 years before Game of Thrones. The show is co-created by Martin and Ryan Condal, and joining them as executive producers are Miguel Sapochnik, Vince Gerardis, Sara Lee Hess, and Ron Schmidt.
