HBOs Game of Thrones precursor House of the Dragon is officially a Golden Globe winner. On Tuesday night, the live-action series took home the award for best drama series. Other nominees in the category included AMCs You better call SaulNetflixs The crown and Ozarkand that of Apple TV+ Dismissal. Executive producer and outgoing showrunner Miguel Sapochnik and stars Emma D’Arcy and Milly Alcock accepted the award.
What’s House of the Dragon as regards?
House of the Dragon finds the Targaryen dynasty at the absolute pinnacle of its power, with more than 15 dragons under their yoke. Most empires – real and imagined – collapse from such heights. In the case of the Targaryens, their slow fall begins nearly 193 years before the events of Game of Thrones, when King Viserys Targaryen breaks with a century of tradition by naming his daughter Rhaenyra heir to the Iron Throne. But when Viserys later fathers a son, the court is shocked when Rhaenyra retains her status as his heir, and seeds of division sow friction in the realm.
Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, Sonoya Mizuno and Rhys Ifans star in the series.
Has House of the Dragon renewed for season 2?
HBO quickly renewed the show for a second season just a month after season 1 first premiered.
“We are beyond proud of what the entire HOUSE OF THE DRAGON team has accomplished with Season One,” Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming, said in a statement at the time. “Our phenomenal cast and crew rose to a huge challenge and exceeded all expectations by delivering a show that has already established itself as must-see TV. A big thank you to George, Ryan and Miguel for leading us on this journey. We couldn’t be more excited to bring the epic saga of House Targaryen to life with season two.”
