The prequel was formally announced in April 2023. The series will be written and executive-produced by Martin and Ira Parker. Ryan Condal, who currently serves as House of the Dragon‘s showrunner, and Vince Gerardis also will be EPs.

“A century before the events of Game of Thrones, two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros,” the previously released official logline reads. “A young, naive but courageous knight, Ser Duncan the Tall” (aka Dunk) “and his diminutive squire, Egg. Set in an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living memory, great destinies, powerful foes and dangerous exploits all await these improbable and incomparable friends.”

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms will be preceded by Season 2 of House of the Dragon, which is slated to premiere in Summer 2024.

House of the Dragon Season 2: What We Know

In 2021, HBO and Max chief content officer Casey Bloys stressed that the Game of Thrones spinoff concepts that would move forward would be the ones that are the strongest based on several measures.

“Obviously, we know George has this incredible world with all of this really rich and complicated history and all of these characters,” he told TVLine at the time. “So we’ve been trying to be thoughtful about what are the stories that are worth telling. What would be exciting? What would fans love?” he said. “Dunk and Egg is one of those, but not the only one.”

But as of just a few months ago, the reportedly in-the-works spinoff centered on Kit Harington‘s Jon Snow was nowhere near to getting an official go-ahead from the network. “I wouldn’t say there is anything else in that world that is close to a green light or anything,” Bloys told TVLine in November.
