Production on HBO’s House of the Dragon has been put on pause due to a positive COVID-19 test.
Filming on the Game of Thrones prequel series has been underway over in the United Kingdom, with the series expected to debut sometime next year. When filming began back in the spring, we got several first look photos of the House of the Dragon characters we will soon meet.
However, Deadline has learned production on House of the Dragon has hit a little bump after a positive COVID case. Filming on the upcoming HBO series will be put on hold for two days and return to work on Wednesday. The crew member who tested positive along with close contacts will follow protocols and spend time in quarantine. This all comes as other productions like Bridgerton and Matilda have faced similar situations, with COVID cases on the rise once again in the United Kingdom.

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 will serve as the showrunner with Martin and Ryan Condal. House of the Dragon stars Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, and Paddy Considine, Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, and Sonoya Mizuno.
