HBO Max has set a premiere date for its Game of Thones prequel series House Of The Dragon.

The first Game of Thones spin-off is coming this Summer as HBO Max has revealed that House Of The Dragon is set to debut on August 21st. This means that House Of The Dragon will be premiering new episodes on Sunday nights, just like Game of Thones did throughout its eight-season run on HBO.

The House Of The Dragon premiere date announcement was accompanied with a poster for the highly-anticipated HBO Max series. The stunning one-sheet features a massive red dragon protecting one of its eggs as it prepares to hatch. You can check out the poster below.

Last year, Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin opened up about House of the Dragon, sharing his thoughts on the show’s first episode. “I’ve seen a rough cut of the first episode. And loved it. It’s dark, it’s powerful, it’s visceral… just the way I like my epic fantasy,” Martin said at the time. “Ryan [J. Condal] and Miguel [Sapochnik] have done an amazing job, and the cast… just as with Game of Thrones, most viewers will only have heard of a few of the actors, but I think you are going to fall in love with a lot of them.”

Here is the synopsis for the Game of Thrones spin-off series:

Based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood, the series will tell the story of House Targaryen (a.k.a. the House that gave us the Mother of Dragons herself, Daenerys Targaryen) and take place 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.

Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan J. Condal serve as co-showrunners on House of the Dragon and are executive producing alongside George R. R. Martin. The series features a star-studded cast that includes Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, and Paddy Considine, Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best and Sonoya Mizuno.

All episodes of Game of Thrones are available to stream on HBO Max. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding House of the Dragon and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
