Reports have announced that HBO is to go ahead with a full season order of a Targaryen-centric prequel series entitled House of the Dragon. Whilst reports of a potential prequel series regarding the infamous house were first made last month, the news that it will now go ahead with ten full episodes was covered by Entertainment Weekly

The official Game of Thrones Twitter account then posted this poster, with the appropriate tagline ‘Fire Will Reign’. The series is co-created by Ryan Condal and George R.R. Martin himself, will now also be led by GoT-alum, director Miguel Sapochnik

The series is rumoured to adapt Martin’s novel Fire and Blood, which was released last year. This mighty record covers the first (Yes, only the first!) half of the Targaryen dynasty, therefore over 150 years of Westerosi history. However, it is yet unclear as to what crucial parts the series will cover. Previous reports mentioned the brutal Targaryen civil war, known as The Dance of Dragons. Though this new information suggests it may begin at the start of the family rule, with Aegon’s Conquest of the Seven Kingdoms.

“The Game of Thrones universe is so rich with stories,” says Casey Bloys, the president of HBO programming. “We look forward to exploring the origins of House Targaryen and the earlier days of Westeros along with Miguel, Ryan and George.”

This news comes just hours after HBO announced they would no longer be moving forward with their Long Night prequel series, working titled Bloodmoon

As to when this series will grace our screens remains unknown as of yet, but one things for certain – General audiences are about to see how tame Daenerys really was!
