Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has been a tremendous success so far thanks to the collective efforts of its amazing team. However, in a shocking turn of events, the most anticipated show of 2022 just lost one of its foundational pillars, right after the show was renewed for a second season. House of The Dragon co-showrunner Miguel Sapochnik will be leaving the team, while another Game of Thrones vet Alan Taylor will be the newest addition to the crew.

House of The Dragon director Greg Yaitanes recently talked to Vanity Fair about his experience working on the show, when he opened up about Sapochnik’s departure, “He is a true artist…I can see his fingerprints all over the work of this season. And I completely understand when you feel you have nothing else to prove, you want to move on to the next creative endeavor.”

“I’ve been directing for 30 years,” he said. “When you’re coming into those years, you want to choose whatever those last 10 projects of your career are going to be and where you’re going to want to put your time, and more importantly, where you want to trade time with your family. And this is an endeavor. The payback for being gone [from them] for as long as I was is my kids are able to drive up and down Sunset [Boulevard] and see House of the Dragon [billboards] everywhere. Getting those cool-dad points are pretty valuable!”
