The first photos from the House of the Dragon series have appeared online. The series, which is a spinoff and prequel to HBO’s Game of Thrones, is currently filming.
Photos from the set show Emma D’Arcy’s Rhaenyra Targaryen and Matt Smith’s Daemon Targaryen in conversation. While it’s hard to tell anything from the photos, it looks like the show will follow the aesthetic of the original.

House of the Dragon takes place 300 years before Game of Thrones. As the name suggests, this is House Targaryen, the noble family we saw on GoT. Daenerys, one of the main characters, was from House Targaryen
The Targaryens fled to the Seven Kingdoms or Westeros from the Fate of Valyria. They established their ancestral castle on Dragonstone just off Westeros. They stayed that way until Aegon Targaryen and his sisters brought the Seven Kingdoms to their knees with the help of their dragons.
Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Condal are the showrunners of House of the Dragon. Author George RR Martin is involved as executive producer.
Paddy Considine and Olivia Cooke also play the role of Viserys I Targaryen Alicent Hightower respectively. Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best and Sonoya Mizuno are also part of the cast. Besides House of the Dragon, several other GoT spinoffs are also reportedly in development.
The one called 9 Voyages comes from the English screenwriter Bruno Heller, who created the historical drama series Rome for the network. This is Lord Corlys Velaryon or The Sea Snake, who was the head of House Velaryon, and one of the actors of the famous Dance of the Dragons event.
Another called 10,000 Ships is about the legend of the Princess of Rhoynar, from whom the people of Dorne are descended. According to myths, she commanded ten thousand ships as she fled with her people from the armies and dragons of Valyrian Freehold. They eventually ended up in the southern region of Westeros.
