House of the Dragon and Game of Thrones Lead Latest Streaming Charts
HBO will release another episode of House of the Dragon that will change the landscape of the series as we probably are aware it with a massive time hop. The series will swap out Milly Alcock and Emily Carey for Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke to play more established versions of Rhaynera Targaryen and Allicent Hightower. With such a major change, the series is doing something its predecessor has never done. Game of Thrones was very linear and didn’t change their main cast whatsoever throughout the span of eight seasons. Albeit both series are altogether different, they’re both having extremely successful runs numbers wise. According to Nielsen, both Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon have come to the top of the streaming charts, with the former hitting the main spot and the latter hitting third spot.
Previously, Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin focused on the being developed Jon Snow spin-off in another post to his blog. In the post he uncovered that he collaborated with Harington on the series as well as two other mystery writers/showrunners. Martin wrote in the blog entry that he was unable to uncover who will compose the series yet that Harington’s group is marvelous.
“Yes, it was Pack Harrington who carried the plan to us,” the Game of Thrones creator uncovered. “I can’t let you know the names of the writers/showrunners, since that has not been cleared for release yet, yet Pack acquired them too, his own group, and they are fantastic.”
In the final season of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow learned of his actual way of life as Aegon Targaryan, the genuine successor to the Iron Throne. Subsequent to killing his auntie/sweetheart, Daenarys, to keep her from power, Jon was forced to choose an existence of exile in the Night’s Watch. Instead of staying with the Night’s Watch, Jon traveled North of the Wall to live with the Wildlings and his critical wolf Ghost. The series is said to focus on what occurred after these events.
HBO has been developing a lot of series set in the Game of Thrones universe including House of the Dragon. Also among the projects said to be being developed is a Tales of Dunk and Egg prequel series. So, it looks like Warner Bros. and HBO will be in the Game of Thrones business for a long time.
“We fostered a ton of ideas, we were still developing a ton of ideas, and I think we’re truly amped up for the one that will air later this summer,” HBO VP of original programming Kara Buckley said of Game of Thrones recently. “Yet, we don’t want to make another one unless it feels actually creatively exciting to us. That’s my work, at least. And the group that I’m on, that’s what we’re told to focus on.”
