“House of the Dragon” follows the Targaryen family in Westeros.

It takes place 300 years before the events in “Game of Thrones.” The series is based on author George R.R. Martin’s novel “Fire & Blood,” published in 2018.

It is one of six separate “Game of Thrones”–related projects in development at the studio. 

Emilia Clarke — who starred as Daenerys Targaryen in the award-winning cult series — recently gave the prequel her blessings.

Clarke said that spin-offs were “inevitable,” adding: “Godspeed, everyone!”
