House of the Dragon: Who’s in the cast of the Game of Thrones prequel?

HBO’s Game of Thrones has officially been over since May of 2019.

However, the network announced that there will be a prequel to the popular series airing in 2022.

House of the Dragon: Who’s in the cast of the Game of Thrones prequel?

House of the Dragon has officially begun filming and there will be some new faces starring in the highly anticipated series.

The story goes back to the Targaryen empire, as chronicled in George R. R. Martin's Fire and Blood book.

The cast includes: 

  • Matt Smith – Prince Daemon Targaryen
  • Emma D'Arcy – Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen
  • Steve Toussaint – Lord Corlys Velaryon, “The Sea Snake”
  • Olivia Cooke – Alicent Hightower
  • Rhys Ifans – Otto Hightower

What will House of the Dragon be about?

The film will focus on a historical event in Westeros known as the Dance of the Dragons. 

It is considered a civil war that took place between siblings Aegon II and Rhaenyra over the throne after the death of their father Viserys I.

The war reportedly placed every major family against each other, including the Starks and Lannisters.

Many of House Targaryen's powerful dragons suffered as a result and many became extinct. 

However, Daenerys Targaryen would hatch three eggs hundreds of years later.

When does House of the Dragon premiere?

An exact date of when the film will premiere is still unknown.

It is expected to be released in the second half of 2022.

Will there be another Game of Thrones finale?

A recent tweet has fans hoping that a remake of the GOT finale is on the horizon.

The official account posted: "Winter is coming."

Fans immediately began discussing the final episode and speculated about a possible remake.

One fan wrote: “I’m currently re-watching the show and it physically hurts to know how unrewarding the finale is. If y’all can revive this franchise, it would be a miracle."

A second shared: “Between us I’m ALL IN on us pretending it’s early 2019, season 8 hasn’t happened yet, and doing the damn thing fresh. Our secret!” 

Someone else replied: “Unless you erase and re-do season 8 no s** is coming.”

A user chimed in: "Please do a remake of the final episode. It was a complete let down."
