While Game of Thrones came to a rather divisive conclusion on HBO last year, it didn't stop news of a prequel spin-off ramping excitement levels up among the fandom. News of another series set in the GOT universe had been rife ever since Bran Stark (played by Isaac Hempstead-Wright) was crowned ruler of the Seven Kingdoms in the show's final episode and while a Naomi Watts-led project was axed, a Targaryen-centric spin, The House of the Dragon, was given a series order from HBO.
However, with the coronavirus pandemic continuing to pose complications to television productions across the globe, there were fear it could impact the new Game of Thrones show.
Add to the mix creator George RR Martin's next novel in the A Song of Ice and Fire series has also fallen subject to many pushbacks, nerves House of the Dragon would follow suit have certainly been heightened.
Directed and ran by GOT legend Miguel Sapochnick, House of the Dragon will detail the history of House Targaryen, of whom the likes of Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and Aegon/Jon Snow (Kit Harington) descended from.
The series was given a 10-episode order from HBO and now president of the Casey Bloys has shared an update on when fans can expect to see it during this year's Emmy Awards.
