Variety reports a new GOT project has recently entered development at HBO. The new series would adapt George R.R. Martin’s fantasy novellas Tales of Dunk and Egg.
Similar to House of the Dragon, Tales of Dunk and Egg would take place before the events of A Song of Ice and Fire (aka the “main” Game of Thrones timeline). The series follows the adventures of Ser Duncan the Tall (Dunk) and a young Aegon V Targaryen (Egg). The Dunk and Egg teamup happens around 90 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
Martin’s Tales of Dunk and Egg currently includes three novellas: The Hedge Knight (1998), The Sword Sword (2003), and The Mystery Knight (2010). Since their individual publications, they’ve been compiled into one collection, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.
Since the project is only in early development, we don’t have any talent attached yet. That means no writers, directors, or actors we can associate with the new GOT series so far.
And of course, there’s still a chance HBO scraps the project completely. A GOT series starring Naomi Watts got as far as filming a pilot, but HBO ultimately passed on the show in 2019.
Fans can expect new in-universe content for sure though with House of the Dragon. The series recently added Doctor Who’s Matt Smith in a lead role.
