The long-awaited prequel of “Game of Thrones” has been renewed for Season 2 just six days after its series debut. The show, which brought fans and newcomers alike back to Westeros on Sunday, August 21, was watched by the largest audience for any new HBO series. So no one is surprised.
The series follows the story called “Fire & Blood” by George R.R. Martin. It takes place 200 years before the events of “Game of Thrones” and is focused on the Targaryens. The family gets involved in a brutal civil war, which is called the Dance of the Dragons. The writer describes the Dragon House series as a "Shakespearean tragedy" where there are no unequivocally good characters.
The show reportedly has a budget of $15-$20 million per episode. So we had the chance to convince - special effects are way cooler.
There are 17 fire-breathing dragons in the series, nine of which we’ll meet in the first season. Co-runner of the series Miguel Sapochnik said: “Each new dragon has its own personality… One of them’s got a bad leg. Another one’s much more like an eagle, because she’s kind of neurotic. And another one’s like a curmudgeonly old granny… We’re applying personal character traits to each of the dragons”.
