Telling a story of The Dance of Dragons, which was a civil war during Targaryen rule of the Seven Kingdoms, “House of the Dragon” also stars Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen and Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower. “A once powerful knight and a successful military background, so a man with presence and status. Given the responsibility to the king to watch over and guard the princess,” an official description of the show reads.

“In the current regime, where widespread peace has led to complacency and indulgence, he feels something of a loss of purpose, but nevertheless serves the king with a fierce, if quiet, loyalty,” it continues.

The series is based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood”. Sapochnik and Ryan Condal are the “Game of Thrones” spin-off’s showrunners with Martin serving as executive producer. “House of the Dragon” is set to arrive sometime in 2022.
