LOS ANGELES – HBO is green-lighting a brand new “Recreation of Thrones” prequel after reportedly canceling one other that starred Naomi Watts.
The cable channel stated Tuesday that it is given a 10-episode order to “Home of the Dragon,” set 300 years earlier than the unique collection that ended its eight-season run in Might.
The prequel relies on George R.R. Martin's “Hearth & Blood,” HBO stated. The brand new drama was co-created by Martin and Ryan Condal, whose credit embody “Colony.”
It's going to give attention to Home Targaryen, made well-known in “Recreation of Thrones” by Emilia Clarke's Daenerys and her fearsome dragons.
“Home of the Dragon” was introduced by HBO programming president Casey Bloys throughout a presentation for HBO Max, the streaming service launching in Might 2020 . A derivative of HBO megahit “Recreation of Thrones” could be a key attraction within the more and more crowded streaming market.
HBO declined touch upon stories Tuesday that it had dropped one other “Recreation of Thrones” prequel set hundreds of years earlier than the unique. A pilot episode starring Watts had been filmed in Northern Eire.
The straight-to-series order for “Home of the Dragon,” whether or not an indication of religion within the challenge or stress to get it into manufacturing, avoids letting devotees of the fantasy saga down as soon as extra.
Casting and an air date weren't introduced.
