The era of Game of Thrones spinoffs will begin in 2022, and we’ve already got a look at the prequel series House of the Dragon. Above you see a couple of obvious Targaryens, Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen. You can see more images and descriptions of the main characters here. What do these people have to do with Game of Thrones?

Regardless of if Game of Thrones‘ final season left you wanting more or wishing you could go back before any of that happened, HBO is obliging fans with a spin-off show all about House Targaryen, aka our girl Daenerys’ folks. Set a few hundred years before Dany ever laid eyes on Westeros, House of the Dragon presumably follows the events that take place in George R.R. Martin’s novel Fire and Blood, which recounts the history of House Targaryen, including their civil war, often referred to as the “Dance of the Dragons.”
If you’d like some idea how this family history plays out in the books (which may or may not be spoilers for the series), Uproxx has the details.
