Emmys 2023: House of the Dragon Nominated For Best Drama

House of the Dragon received an Emmy nomination on Wednesday afternoon, showing appreciation for the Max and HBO prequel series in the Best Drama category. It faces stiff competition in this field, with Game of Thrones pitted against Disney+'s Andor, Netflix's The Crown, the beloved Better Call Saul on AMC, Showtime's Yellowjackets, and fellow HBO contenders The Last of Us, Succession, and The White Lotus. These are some of the most compelling TV shows currently airing, but House of the Dragon has a chance to emerge victorious. Now, we must wait and see if the first major success of the David Zaslav era can measure up to the other nominees.

What is House of Dragon About

House of the Dragon is a television series that serves as a prequel to the immensely popular fantasy series Game of Thrones. Set in the fictional world of Westeros, House of the Dragon takes place roughly 300 years before the events depicted in Game of Thrones. The series explores the rich history of House Targaryen, a noble family known for their connection to dragons and their rule over the Seven Kingdoms.

The story delves into the rise of House Targaryen, starting with the reign of King Viserys I Targaryen and the political struggles within the family as they vie for power and control. It also delves into the legendary Targaryen civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons, a devastating conflict between rival factions of the Targaryen dynasty that shaped the future of Westeros.

House of the Dragon provides viewers with a deeper understanding of the Targaryen family, their dragon companions, and the events that ultimately led to their downfall, setting the stage for the events depicted in Game of Thrones. It combines elements of political intrigue, epic battles, and complex family dynamics, offering a thrilling and visually stunning exploration of the history of Westeros.

Will House of the Dragon Be Affected By The Writers Strike?

In short, no. As mentioned in a blog post by George R.R. Martin, the creator of the franchise, fans had been eagerly anticipating this news long before the recent labor disputes started to arise. It appears that HBO was aiming to ensure the arrival of one of its guaranteed successes as soon as possible.

"The filming for the second season of House of the Dragon commenced on April 11 and is set to take place in London and Wales," Martin revealed in response to inquiries from fans. "The scripts for all eight episodes of Season 2 were completed months ago, well before the labor strike commenced. Each episode has undergone multiple drafts and extensive revisions to address HBO's input, my suggestions, budget considerations, and more. No further revisions will be made. The writers have fulfilled their responsibilities, and the remainder lies in the hands of the directors, cast, and crew... along with, of course, the dragons."
