HBO cancelled the Long Night prequel series that Naomi Watts and company have spent the past year filming the pilot. In its stead, HBO has instead ordered to series House of the Dragon.
Based on Fire and Blood, House of the Dragon is the chronicle of Targaryen rule of Westeros. If you haven’t read the book, it’s as thick and juicy as English history. There’s no shortage of succession intrigue, civil wars, unruly daughters, horrific plagues, uprisings and rebellions, and good ol’ dragon-vs-dragon combat.
Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik will executive produce and serve as showrunners.
