HBO has brought back Dragons.
The long-awaited Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon has rolled out a new trailer.
Set 200 years before the events of the original series, the series became HBO’s greatest smash hit, which brought home the most Emmy Awards of all time.
It is based on the novel by author George R.R. Martin. Co-creators and showrunners Ryan Condal (Colony) and Miguel Sapochnik (Finch) are behind the new series.
Dragons stars Paddy Considine (Peaky Blinders), Olivia Cooke (Ready Player One), Matt Smith (Doctor Who) as Prince Daemon Targaryen, and Emma D’Arcy (Wanderlust) as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen.

The series, which premieres Aug. 21, is a significant undertaking for HBO, which intends to rekindle some of the enchantment of Game of Thrones, which racked up more than $1 billion in revenue over its seven-year run from 2011 to 2019. Additionally, the company has numerous other prequel projects centered in the realm of Westeros in different stages of production, and the success of House of the Dragon would be a solid indication that Game of Thrones can go beyond a successful series to be developed into a franchise.
