House of the Dragon, the much-anticipated prequel to the show Game of Thrones, premiered on HBOMax, and DisneyPlus Hotstar across the world on Sunday and on Monday morning in India. The story of the Targaryen civil war is premiering three years after the end of the much-loved Game of Thrones, one of the biggest TV shows of the last decade. The House of the Dragon is based on portions of George RR Martin’s 2018 novel 'Fire and Blood.'

Set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, the show is created by Martin and Ryan J Condal. The show stars Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Paddy Considine, Emma D’Arcy, and Steve Toussaint in lead roles among others.

House of the Dragon focuses on House Targaryen as the show will chart the Targaryen war of succession, which is also called “Dance of the Dragons”. 

The story of the House Targaryen came back to screen after three years as the finale of the Game of Thrones premiered on May 19, 2019 after running for 8 years from 2011. The show started filming in 2020 in the UK as the weekly inaugural season of House of the Dragon comprises 10 episodes.
