The first episode of the ten-episode season is expected to drop on August 21, 2022 on HBO Max. Game of Thrones author George Martin talked about the series last December,

“It’s dark, it’s powerful, it’s visceral… just the way I like my epic fantasy. Ryan and Miguel have done an amazing job, and the cast… just as with Game of Thrones, most viewers will only have heard of a few of the actors, but I think you are going to fall in love with a lot of them. I think the Targaryens are in very good hands.”
