New Delhi : HBO's House of the dragon (a prequel to Game of Thrones) is on tracks to have a premier date in 2022. Based on author George R.R.

Bloys also clarified that House of the Dragon is a project of the highest priority at HBO. "For me for right now, I think getting House of the Dragon on the air will be the number one priority," Bloys said. "There are no other blinking green lights or anything like that. Sometime down the road who knows, but there are no immediate plans. We are all focusing on House of the Dragon."
House of the Dragon will explore the Targaryen dynasty's rise after founding King's Landing and eventual fall after the civil war called the Dance of the Dragons. George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal co-created the series and will serve as showrunners along with Miguel Sapochnik, who directed some of Game of Thrones' most pivotal episodes, including "Hardhome" and "Battle of the Bastards."
