HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones spin-off, House of the Dragon, will debut on HBO and HBO Max on August 21. The company announced the date Wednesday with a photo of what appears to be a… hatching dragon egg — which hopefully means we’ll get to see at least one of the terrifying beasts in the upcoming show.
House of the Dragon is based on George RR Martin’s 2019 book Fire and Blood and is focused on, as the name suggests, House Targaryen. It takes place 200 years before the events of the hugely popular Game of Thronesin which Daenerys Targaryen was one of the main characters.
HBO announced for the first time House of the Dragon was in the works in October 2019. The company debuted in October 2021 with a teaser trailer, although it was light on plot details. House of the Dragons The August 21 release date means it will be listed against Amazon’s upcoming The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Prime Video series, which debuts on September 2.
