Following last night’s Team Green-centered penultimate episode, HBO has dropped the promo trailer for the upcoming tenth and season finale episode of House of the Dragon, titled “The Black Queen.” The newest episode of the Game of Thrones prequel is scheduled to air on October 23.
The House of the Dragon season one finale trailer teases the beginning of the long-awaited Targaryen civil war called the Dance of the Dragons as Rhaenyra’s Black Council comes up with a counterattack against the Hightowers’ imminent threats.
Based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood, House of the Dragon chronicles the rise and the downfall of the Targaryens, who are the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria. It takes place 300 years before the events of the award-winning series adaptation of Game of Thrones, which aired its final episode in 2019.
The 10-episode series is being led by Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, and Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen. It also features Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Sonoya Mizuno, Milly Alcock, Emily Carey, Graham McTavish, Ryan Corr, Jefferson Hall, David Horovitch, Matthew Needham, Bill Patterson, Gavin Spokes, Wil Johnson, John Macmillan, Savannah Steyn, and Theo Nate.
House of the Dragon hails from George R.R. Martin, Ryan Condal, and Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik, with Condal and Sapochnik also serving as showrunners. Executive producers are Martin, Sapochnik, Condal, Vince Gerardis, and Sara Lee Hess.
