Game of Thrones may have ended over two years ago, but we all knew HBO wasn’t letting go of the franchise just yet. The first spin-off, House of the Dragon is due to arrive next year, and the very first trailer has just been released by HBO Max.
The series follows House Targaryen at their height, almost a century after the family conquered Westeros and 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones. But these times are far from peaceful, and as ever the Iron Throne is at the route of that conflict.
The trailer is narrated by Prince Daemon Targaryen, played by Doctor Who’s Matt Smith, younger brother to King Viserys (Paddy Considine), and future husband to Princess Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy), Viserys’ daughter and heir to the Iron Throne.
