It comes as HBO revealed that the adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s The Hedge Knight novella will feature six episodes. This is fewer than the first seasons of Game of Thrones or House of the Dragon.

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. 

Peter Claffey and Dexter Sol Ansell star in the series, which is expected to air in late 2025.

In April 2023, HBO said it had ordered another Game of Thrones prequel titled A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight. The prequel is based on the Dunk & Egg fantasy novellas written by George R.R. Martin.

Chronologically, it is set about 72 years after House of the Dragon and about 100 years before GoT.

The series is written and executive produced by Martin and Ira Parker. Executive producers include Ryan Condal, Vince Gerardis, Owen Harris, and Sarah Bradshaw.
