The series is based on author Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series and its companion materials and is set primarily in Westeros during a time of great political upheaval.


House of the Dragon has been in development for several years (though the title has changed a couple of times during that process),” Martin wrote on his blog in response to news of the series pickup announced in 2019. “It was actually the first concept I pitched to HBO when we started talking about a successor show, way back in the summer of 2016.”
