The series, premiering Aug. 21, is a major initiative for HBO, which hopes to recapture some of the magic of Game of Thrones, which represented more than $1 billion in revenue during its run from 2011 to 2019. The company also has several other prequel projects set in the world of Westeros in various stages of development, and House of the Dragon performing well would be a good sign that GoT can be turned from a singular hit series into a franchise.
One billion!? Damn. Well then, they are probably praying this one sticks. Check out the new GOT Spin-off trailer above!
