While life goes quickly, House of the Dragon moves even quicker. When the series started, Rhaenyra Targaryen was just 14 years old, and Viserys Targaryen was a vivacious young king. After what happened in episode 8, King Viserys is now unquestionably on his way out. The succession is approaching—the day Viserys has been educating Rhaenyra for. least theoretically. On Sunday, we’ll see how adept House Hightower is at creating obstacles in Rhaenyra’s path to the Iron Throne.
Before Daenerys Targaryen became the Mother of Dragons, House of the Dragon takes place 190 years in the past. House of the Dragon concentrates on the Targaryens whereas Game of Thrones focused on families from all over Westeros and beyond. It tells the story of the rise and eventual collapse of the House Targaryen and is based on the book Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin.
House of the Dragon will show one episode at a time, much like Game of Thrones did before it. (And we now know that a second season will be produced.) At the same time as its immediate predecessor, it airs on Sunday at 9 p.m. PT. At the same time, the show will be available on streaming providers all around the world, including HBO Max in the US.

One of the most well-known serial dramas in the world, Game of Thrones was praised for bringing Hollywood blockbuster production to your television. However, the HBO program was developed at a quicker rate than Martin could produce new books, thus some of the show’s brilliance eroded in the final two seasons. Winds of Winter, the sixth book in the Song of Fire and Ice series, is infamous for its frequent delays.
Fortunately, HBO is permitted to borrow Martin’s annotations once more in House of the Dragon. The television program is based on Fire & Blood, a 2018 novel by Martin. The second book in the series Martin is writing on the Targaryen dynasty, House of the Dragon takes up where Fire & Blood left off.
