As you want to see it, the epic game of Thrones is HBO’s most valuable intellectual property. Whether due to its immeasurable following of fans or the record number of awards it has received, this emerging television franchise is an infinite hotbed of ideas that cannot and should not be neglected. In addition to the acclaimed original show consisting of eight seasons, in 2022 we also had the first installment of the prequel House of the Dragon, which also became a resounding success for the chain. So it is not surprising that there is interest in expanding this universe through another series project, which in this case (according to reports) will be about the mythical Aegon the Conqueror.
This Monday, Variety released the exclusive that —based on what they heard from reliable sources— HBO is holding discussions regarding raising a series about the conquest of Westeros; the fictional continent created by the novelist George RR Martin, where a large part of the events of his literary universe take place, including those that have already been brought to the small screen in previous adaptations.
To do this, it will be necessary to travel to the years prior to the beginning of the era in which the stories of game of Thrones and House of the Dragon; that is to say, when Aegon I Targaryen —fleeing from the fall of Valyria— arrived together with his sister wives Visenya and Rhaenys to the coasts of Westeros; a potential territory over which to claim absolute dominion, with the help of more than fifteen hundred soldiers and three dragons at his disposal. Eventually, Aegon the Conqueror became the first monarch to sit on the Iron Throne, ruling six of the seven kingdoms of Westeros. Ready to see all this exciting passage in a television series?

However, it should be noted that the project is in very early stages of development, according to Variety. There isn’t even a signed writer yet, although it seems that HBO is already carrying out a very anxious search, in order to get the series into the oven as soon as possible.
On the other hand, the same report indicates that an intention of HBO and Warner Bros. Pictures would first be to produce a feature film that would later lead to the series on Aegon the Conqueror. Are we to assume that it will consist of a movie about the ancient Targaryens and the Curse of Valyria? Sadly, there are no details about it.
All game of Thrones and the first batch of episodes of House of the Dragon They can be seen on HBO Max. The second season of the latter, based on the Dance of the Dragons, is expected to premiere in the summer of 2024.
