HBO's Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon, has wrapped filming, according to series creator and executive producer, George R. R. Martin.

The hotly-anticipated series has been in development since 2019 with filming taking place in Cornwall, England, from April 2021 and at the Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden on the V Stage, with additional shooting in Granada, Spain.

The drama adaptation of Martin’s novel Fire & Blood is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones, exploring the story of House Targaryen. The cast includes Paddy Considine, Olivia Cooke, Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Rhys Ifans, Sonoya Mizuno and Fabien Frankel.

Series writer Ryan Condal co-created the prequel with Martin, and is also serving as showrunner and executive producer alongside Miguel Sapochnik. Sara Lee Hess, Vince Gerardis, Ron Schmidt and Greg Yaitanes are also attached as executive producers.

Martin said: “I am informed that shooting has wrapped for the first season of House of the Dragon. Yes, all ten episodes.  I have seen rough cuts of a few of them, and I’m loving them. Of course, a lot more work needs to be done. Special effects, colour timing, score, all the post-production work. But the writing, the directing, the acting all look terrific.  I hope you will like them as much as I do. My hat is off to Ryan and Miguel and their team, and to our amazing cast.”
