The Game of Thrones spin-off House of the Dragon appears for the first time on official photos from HBO. We get a first foretaste of the Targaryens who have lived with John Schnee, Daenerys, Tyrion & Co for hundreds of years.

The HBO series Game of Thrones has ended, but that doesn’t mean the stories from Westeros are all told. For example, the prequel series House of the Dragon will be dedicated to the mansion of the infamous Targaryen family and set hundreds of years before Game of Thrones. The story revolves around the legendary Targaryens civil war, which went down in the history books of Westeros as the “Dance of the Dragons”. For the first time ever, HBO has revealed official photos from the fantasy series featuring key characters and actors:
