Everything We Know About The New 'Game Of Thrones' Spinoff Series That's Just Started Filming

'A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms' is the latest R. R. Martin project to come to life.

The cameras have started rolling for one of HBO’s 'Game of Thrones’ spinoff series, ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’, and a release date is already doing the rounds by its creator.

While our attention is currently on season two of ‘House of Dragon’, yet another of George R. R. Martin’s novellas, ‘The Hedge Knight’, is cooking up a new series set to hit our screens.

Taking to his blog, Martin shared: “Filming started last week in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where much of the original ‘Game of Thrones’ was shot. The new show will debut early next year, in 2025.”

He added the series is looking to only be six episodes long.

The first season is reported to follow the duo of Ser Duncan the Tall (played by Peter Claffey) and his squire, Egg (Dexter Sol Ansell). 

It all takes place a solid century before ‘Game of Thrones’ kicks off and about a hundred years after the current series ‘House of the Dragon.’

According to HBO: “A century before the events of ‘Game of Thrones,’ two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros… a young, naïve but courageous knight, Ser Duncan the Tall, and his diminutive squire, Egg.”

“Set in an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne, and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living memory, great destinies, powerful foes, and dangerous exploits all await these improbable and incomparable friends.”

Their journey will take them to a competition in which they rub shoulders with several members of the Targaryen dynasty.

Other characters set to appear in the series include Prince Aerion Targaryen (played by Finn Bennett), Prince Baelor Targaryen (Bertie Carvel), Prince Maekar Targaryen (Sam Spruell) Ser Lyonel Baratheon (Daniel Ings), and a puppeteer named Tanselle (Tanzyn Crawford).

The series is written and executive produced by Martin and Ira Parker who also produced ‘House of Dragon’. They’ll be working alongside fellow EPs Ryan Condal, Vince Gerardis, Owen Harris and Sarah Bradshaw.

Right. I'm off to rewatch 'GOT' and catch up with 'House of Dragon' on Neon, so we can dive straight into this series when it hits our screens.
