A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knightthe next spin-off series Game Of Throneswas revealed in a first image.

After House of the Dragon (which began its season 2), the universe of Game Of Thrones taken from the writings of George RR Martin continues to expand. If certain projects are at a standstill, like the one on Jon Snow, or simply canceled, like Bloodmoon with Naomi Watts, another has survived the winter and is fast approaching: A Knight of the Seven Kingdomswhich had been announced (but not confirmed) as early as April 2023.

Taking place 100 years before the events of Game Of Thronesbut after the events of House of the Dragon, the series promises to be less dense and more intimate than the two other series released so far. We will follow the journey of the knight Ser Duncan the Great, known as Dunk, and his squire Aegon V Targaryen, known as Egg. To give a first glimpse of this next epic across Westeros, the channel HBO recently revealed a first image of its knight Duncan.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

The era in which the series takes place is described as follows in the official synopsis: “ A century before the events of Game of Thrones, two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros: a naive but courageous young knight, Ser Duncan the Great (aka Dunk) and his little squire, Egg.. Set in a time when the Targaryen line still held the Iron Throne and the memory of the last dragon had not yet faded from the memory of the living, great destinies, powerful enemies and dangerous exploits awaited all of these unlikely friends and incomparable. »

In this first photo, dear Duncan doesn’t look very serene. Played by Peter Claffey, already seen in Wreck: bloody cruise, the knight Dunk seems to be inexperienced, and one almost wonders if HBO would not be preparing a first comedy series here. In any case, we feel that for once, eyes will no longer be primarily focused on the upper strata of society, thus letting us discover a new part of Westeros. For his part, young Egg will be played by Dexter Sol Ansell (Hunger Games: The Ballad of the Serpent and the Songbird).

HBO also announced new additions to the cast : Finn Bennett (True Detective: Night Country), Bertie Carvel (The Crown), and Sam Spruell (Fargo) who will play Targaryen princes named Aerion, Baelor and Maekar. The actor Daniel Ings (Sex Educationn) also joined the cast to play Ser Lyonel Baratheon, aka the Storm Mockingbird, while actress Tanzyn Crawford (Tiny Beautiful Things) will play a puppeteer named Tanselle.

The series is written and produced by George RR Martin, author of the book The Knight Errant which is adapted here (obviously). Accompanying him in writing and production is Ira Parker, who also worked on House of the Dragon. A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight is planned for the end of 2025, most certainly on Max in France.
