It just wouldn’t be Game of Thrones without a morally ambiguous royal playing, well, the game of thrones — and Olivia Cooke is here to reassure us that’s what we’ll see in the upcoming Thrones spinoff, House of the Dragon.
It’s certainly not ideal, but as the world is still in the grip of a pandemic, it’s not entirely surprising that there has been a report of a positive COVID-19 case on the UK set of the Game of Thrones spinoff House of the Dragon.
In a pre-pandemic world, eons and eons ago, it was announced that a Game of Thrones animated show was in development. We never heard about this again, as the surely curated info HBO has permitted to eke out has thus far pertained to House of the Dragon, as well as occasional news regarding the other in-development live-action shows. But now, for the first time in what seems like an eternity, there’s been an announcement on the animated front. And you know what they say: When it rains,
it pours two more GOT animated projects are now in the works, for a total of three.
HBO has announced that Milly Alcock and Emily Carey will be joining the cast of House of the Dragon … and their characters support speculation that the show will feature flashbacks or even multiple timelines.
When the news broke that HBO would return to several Game of Thrones locations in Spain to film the Targaryen-centric prequel House of the Dragon, we also learned that Portugal would be next, and now we have more concrete information about where that will be exactly.

Early rumors suggested HBO wouldn’t return to film in Spain for House of the Dragon as they did for the final four seasons of Game of Thrones, but we’re happy to report that’s not the case: this October, House of the Dragon will be filmed in Spain — and in previously used locations, too. That’s not all, however…
We are saddened to report that, due to the ongoing pandemic, Mischief Management has made the difficult decision to cancel Con of Thrones 2021.
The recent two year anniversary of the Game of Thrones finale got me thinking about how the fandom’s relationship with the world of Westeros has changed since HBO first announced that they would be producing spinoffs … and how that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
When Game of Thrones (or, something like it) returns to our screens sometime in the next 1-2 years, the settings will look very different. Thus far, all of the spinoffs greenlit (currently as many as three) will be set at some point in the past. And while we’ve been tracking the production of HBO’s upcoming House of the Dragon, we’ve heard hardly a word for months on the other spinoffs that have been rumored about the Internet. Today, however, is a different day. Today, Deadline has confirmed that Amanda Segel is the first announced writer to tackle the legendary Princess Nymeria and her, well, 10,000 ships…
Long has the partnership between Ommegang and Game of Thrones born delicious fruit for fans with their wide array of themed beers. Well, much like HBO moving on with House of the Dragon and a barrage of other spinoffs, so too have they moved on from the New York brewery. Stepping in to take their place is Danish brewery Mikkeller launching a brand new line of Game of Thrones beers to entice longtime fans. And they’re starting out with a bang by offering a very popular type of beer wholly absent from Ommegang’s line-up: an IPA. So let’s dive in and explore this new take on themed beer with the Iron Anniversary Hazy IPA by Mikkeller.
