House Of The Dragon Undecided Runtime

The first season of Dragon House is about to end, with the show taking place 200 years before the events of game of thrones took place.

“I wish I had more time to explore the relationship between Rhaenyra and Ser Harwin, Daemon and Laena’s marriage and their time in Pentos, the birth of many and varied children, and all the things we had to ignore.”

Even though the series has strayed a lot from the books, the story remains the same for the most part. The limitations provided by a shorter series with only ten episodes are well known to the author, but he also explains how no matter what, they would still be able to play the whole story as beautifully as it was written. for the books.

Fans React That House Of The Dragon Is Half The Length Of Game Of Thrones

Although fans are conflicted seeing the multiple time jumps, they understand that it was necessary for the series starring Matt Smith and Emma D’Arcy to fit all the important aspects into a certain framework. Some characters may also have been omitted, but that wouldn’t interfere with the storyline itself.

They also seem to like the fact that having shorter seasons would avoid stretching storylines that could easily be covered in a few episodes. Some are enjoying the first season so much that hearing you run the whole show saddened them because they wanted more seasons with the characters they admire.

Having four seasons would focus precisely on the story of the Targaryens and their history without drifting and focusing on storylines more than necessary. The later seasons would naturally gain as much hype as game of thrones did. The author’s vision for the series might just be the right path for the series and its ever-growing fame.

Dragon House airs every Sunday on HBO Max.
