House of the Dragon is now in production, and will the origin story of the House Targaryen, taking place 300 years before the events of GOT.
Game of Thrones was a breathtaking series and everyone who watched it loved it, except the last season but still, the whole series was such an emotional ride and filled with heart-wrenching deaths, love, and fight for the throne among our favorite characters. The series was based on a book series by George Martin.

House of the Dragon
Continuing GOT, or well, going back in time, HBO has decided to make a spin-off series based on George Martin’s book “Fire & Blood”. They announced it on Twitter on December 2020 and told that the production will begin in 2021. This series will take place 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones and will revolve around the house of Targaryen and their origin.
With the recent tweet that they posted on April 28, we can see that the shooting of the series has now finally begun. They posted this pic in which we can see two members of house Targaryen – Rhaenyra Targaryen and Daemon Targaryen, who might be the main characters of the series- are seen talking in what seems like the middle of some desert.
