It is reportedly going to delve a little deeper into why the events of the final series played out the way they did.

He apparently saw “rough cuts” of some of the episodes once they had finished filming and admitted to “loving them.”

In a blog post, which he wrote in February this year, he said “a lot more work” needed to be done before it was ready to hit our screens…

However, the “writing, the directing [and] the acting all look terrific.”

“I hope you will like them as much as I do,” he added.

And it seems as though the production has already beaten the budget of the last series of Game of Thrones.

A source told Variety that they’re shelling out $20 million per episode of House of the Dragon, which is an extra $5 million an episode compared to the original.

Doctor Who actor, Matt Smith, who plays Prince Daemon, opened up about what to expect in the new series, revealing to Comicbook, that it is “really different to the original.”

He continued: “I mean it has to be. The original series was its own thing and it was, it was so brilliant and, and sort of left a mark in a way that it would be impossible to repeat.”

Smith added: “So, I don’t know. The truth is I haven’t seen any so it’s difficult for me. Essentially it’s in the same world, it has to take on a slightly different identity. But who knows? I have no idea.”

And now, even more exciting news has emerged about a brand new series, with reports that Kit Harington will reprise his role as Jon Snow.

As we know, at the end of Game of Thrones, Jon learned his real name was Aegon Targaryen, and that he had a direct claim to the Iron Throne.

After killing Daenerys, who went on a rampage in Westeros, Jon decided to live with his wildling friends beyond the wall starting a new life.

And according to The Hollywood Reporter, a sequel to the hit show is currently in development with HBO set around Jon Snow after the events of season 8.

This new show could also open the door for other characters such as Arya Stark, Sansa Stark, and Brienne of Tarth to make a return.

But I guess we’ll just have to wait and see about that one!

For now, the House of the Dragon series debuts on August 21.
