At long last, the first look at Game of Thrones' next chapter is finally here!
Almost two years after the famously binge-watchable fantasy series wrapped with a finale deemed disenchanting by popular opinion, fans got confirmation that its prequel, House of the Dragon, was officially in the works at HBO Max.
The teaser doesn't reveal much about what to expect when House of the Dragon — which centers around the House Targaryen during a civil war set 200 years before GoT — eventually premieres.
But it definitely isn't short on drama. The trailer spends most of its minute-long run cutting between agonized close-ups of new characters and sword fighting scenes.
"Gods, kings, fire and blood. Dreams didn't make us kings — dragons did," says Matt Smith, as Prince Daemon Targaryen, in the clip's narration.
House of the Dragon's cast list is already pretty extensive, and includes names like Paddy Considine, Olivia Cooke, Emma D'Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Rhys Ifans, and Fabien Frankel, in addition to Matt. Its plot is derived from George R.R. Martin's novel Fire & Blood.
House of the Dragon is expected to hit HBO Max some time in 2022. Will you be watching?
