The cast of the Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon gathered on the set in the United Kingdom on Tuesday, HBO said on Twitter .

HBO made in February announced that the recordings for House of the Dragon would go in April.

The Game of Thrones prequel is one of six new series that, like Game of Thrones, is based on George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series . It is about the Targaryen family and is set three hundred years before the Game of Thrones story .

The series will be released next year. Ten episodes will then be released.

George RR Martin is involved in all six new series from HBO. The writer and channel have previously worked together for Game of Thrones (2011-2019).
