HBO has dropped a new premiere date for the spin-off series, House of the Dragon. Along with the new release date, the makers also revealed first look pictures of the characters from the set of the show.

Soon after the makers revealed the first look at some of the characters from the show including King Viserys Targaryen, Prince Daemon Targaryen, Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, Alicent Hightower, Otto Hightower. The pictures show each character amid scenes for the show. Some of the characters were not part of the trailer either. Take a look at the post:
Back in February 2022, Martin in a blog post revealed he had seen rough cuts of a few episodes and he was 'loving them'. He added, "...the writing, the directing, the acting all look terrific. I hope you will them as much as I do. My hats off to Ryan (Condal) and Miguel (Sapochnik) and their team, and to our amazing cast."
Apart from House of the Dragon, fans are also excited for another fantasy drama release The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, which will debut on the streamer on September 2.
