Set even earlier than House of the Dragon, the new show would chronicle Aegon’s conquest.
Not content with House of the Dragon, the forthcoming Dunk and Egg series and various animated ideas, The Hollywood Reporter have indicated that HBO are actively developing a further live-action shows set in Westeros.
Taking place further back in time than House of the Dragon, this project focusses on the initial Targaryen conquest of Westeros.
Aided by his two sister wives, Rhaenys and Visenya, and three monstrous dragons, legend tells that Aegon unified six of the Seven Kingdoms in just two years, with only Dorne managing to resist. And, of course, the swords of the defeated were forged into that infamous Iron Throne.
The new series is led by writer Mattson Tomlin, co-writer of The Batman Part II and Netflix’s upcoming Terminator anime series.
With House of the Dragon launching its second run this year and a finite storyline to explore, it makes sense that HBO are keen to keep the Thrones’ pipeline active. We’ll keep you posted on the Aegon’s Conquest series – although doubtless it will gain a more epic sounding title further down the line.
