The ‘Game of Thrones’ universe will continue to expand on the small screen, as they are already working on another spin-off: ‘Aegons Conquest’.
Although game of Thrones ended in 2019, with an ending that divided everyone, this epic story is very far from saying goodbye. We say this because HBO had already announced the arrival of new series based on the novels created by George RR Martin. However, One more production will be added to the list: Aegon’s Conquest.
We are not going to deny that it is fascinating to know about the past of Westeros and in particular, the Targaryens, because their story and everything that happened in this family until reaching Daenerys is enough to make a single series with a lot of seasons. The clear example of this is House of the Dragonwhich in its first season had us on the edge of our seats laying the foundations for the war that ended this powerful house.

Of course HBO knows that fans of game of Thrones They want to delve deeper into this universe. That is why in addition to the two prequels that were announced in 2021, including A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Night, is already working on a new spin-off called Aegon’s Conquest…just as they read it.
In accordance with The Hollywood Reporter, The American television network has been discussing for a long time whether to give the green light to this project.. However, after many talks and surely after the success of House of the Dragon (which by the way, the second season is coming), they finally decided and launched this project that promises to give us what we like so much about George RR Martin’s stories.
According to the same source, HBO teamed up with Mattson Tomlin to write Aegon’s Conquest. For those who don’t know him, this screenwriter has been behind very important productions, since cShares credits with Matt Reeves in Batman and with him he is working on the second part starring Robert Pattinson. But in addition, he has participated in the series adaptation of the Keanu Reeves comic, BRZRKRand the animated series of Terminator on Netflix.
On the other hand, it is also said that With this series they will return “to the basics” within George RR Martin’s epic fantasy universe (although it is not clear if they are referring to how extensive and complex everything was in Game of Thrones ). However, that more or less gives us an idea of what this project will be about, which definitely promises to give us plenty of action, drama, and fantasy.
The plot of this series will tell us a very famous story in Westeros
And to all this, what will it be about Aegon’s Conquest? Well, this spin-off (which still does not know when it will be released) will be a direct prequel to House of the Dragon that will tell the story of the bloody and brutal conquest of Westeros by the Targaryens. The plot will follow Aegon Targaryen, who conquered the continent with his sisters – and wives – Rhaenys and Visenya, and his dragons.
Within Martin’s novels, Aegon successfully unified six of the Seven Kingdoms in just two years. and, based on fire and blood, he managed to dominate the others, forming one of the strongest houses that have been seen in this world. What do you think of the idea? Are you excited about the idea of seeing all these events on the small screen?
