HBO chief talks about his expectations with House of The Dragon post Emmy nominations




Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is currently a hot topic amongst fantasy lovers all over the world. Things have just become more interesting after HBO and HBO Max Chief Content Officer Casey Bloys recently confirmed the highly awaited prequel series has finished production, and we already have a release date and a full trailer. And the recent Emmy nomination hall has only elated his expectations for future projects, especially Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon.

HBO dominated this year’s Emmy Awards with Succession, which managed to bag a whopping 25 nominations – including a record-breaking 14 in the acting categories, the most ever for a series. HBO and HBO Max scored a combined 140 nominations — a new record for the company, beating out a singular HBO’s 137 nods in 2019.


“I was very pleased with the amount of shows and the depth,” he told Variety. “In other words, it wasn’t one show that dominated. We had a number of shows that did really well. I would like to see all of our shows recognized, but it’s really nice to see a lot of them recognized, and a lot of them, not just a passing nomination here or there but really, really deep. That’s always a nice endorsement.”

He also talked about the future of House of The Dragon, “I would say the measure of success is the same kind of metrics that we use for everything. Which is, some combination of ratings, of reviews, of buzz, all of the above. But there’s no threshold for it’s gotta hit this many viewers or anything like that.”
