Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon was one of the most anticipated shows of 2022, and is currently, a high-priority project at HBO. However, the prequel show, based on the Targaryen civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons, wasn’t the only idea under development. There were several others, some of them have been scrapped, while there are others at various stages of development. However, the one that has recently been confirmed is a prequel series based on George R. R. Martin’s Dunk and Egg novellas.

Martin finally confirms The Hedge Knight series

In his recent post on his blog, Not A Blog, Martin wrote:

“The news is all over the internet by now. The announcement was made on the 12th, at Warner Media’s big press event for the rollout and rebranding of their new streamer, MAX, coming your way on May 23. I was sworn to secrecy till then, but now that the word is out, I can go ahead and confirm it. Yes, it’s true. There’s another successor show on its way to you.

Dunk & Egg are coming to HBO.”

How many episodes will there be in The Hedge Knight Season 1?

The Game of Thrones author also revealed some crucial details about the spinoff:

“HBO has given us a greenlight to film for a full season (not just a pilot), most likely of six episodes… though that is not set in stone, and won’t be until considerably later in the process. To date I have written and published three novellas about Dunk & Egg — “The Hedge Knight,” “The Sworn Sword,” and “The Mystery Knight,” each of them initially published independently in various anthologies before being collected together in A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS.”

“Our premiere season will be an adaptation of the first of the three published novellas, “The Hedge Knight,” the tale of how Dunk & Egg first met during a tournament at Ashford Meadow. The pilot script is already written, and I think it’s terrific. It was written by Ira Parker, who is no stranger to Westeros. He was part of Ryan Condal’s writing staff for the first season of HOUSE OF THE DRAGON, and wrote the fourth episode of Hot D’s first season, “King of the Narrow Sea.” That’s the one where Prince Daemon returns to King’s Landing after conquering the Stepstones, and takes Princess Rhaenyra down into the stews of Flea Bottom. Ryan Condal is on board as well, as an Executive Producer. So am I.”
