The Emmy-winning first season was named Best TV Series - Drama at the 2023 Golden Globes and Best TV Series at Rotten Tomatoes’ Golden Tomato Awards for the best-reviewed show of 2022.

House of the Dragon is based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood and is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones. It tells the story of House Targaryen.

Westeros is on the brink of a bloody civil war with the Green and Black Councils fighting for King Aegon and Queen Rhaenyra, respectively. As each side believes theirs to be the rightful seat on the Iron Throne, the Green and Black trailers reflect those two perspectives in separate yet complementary halves of the same story.
