According to Variety, House of the Dragon's 10-episode season cost under INR 153 crores per episode, which is much more than the series' last season.

In contrast, the controversial eighth season of the main series had Rs 153 crores per episode budget. It is also more in total than the previously stated INR 1200 crores spent on Marvel's initial surge of Disney Plus series, which include Falcon and The Winter Soldier and WandaVision.

The final golden era of Targaryens in Westeros, played by Matt Smith, Emma D'Arcy and Paddy Considine, finished shooting in February and author George R.R. Martin is already a major fan of what he's seen.

Martin wrote on his blog that he has seen rough cuts of the show and he is liking them. The script, directing, and acting all appear to be on point. He sincerely hopes viewers enjoy these as much as he does. He appreciates the showrunner Ryan Condal and co-showrunner Miguel Sapochnik and their crew as well as the incredible cast.

Game of Thrones is an epic TV series which many consider as the greatest series of all time. The eight season long HBO series kept the viewers glued to the screen. The admirers of the show are thrilled about the prequel of the series and can’t wait to learn more about the early history of Westeros.

House of the Dragon, which takes place 200 years before the main series, will face off against another prequel. The HBO series House of the Dragon will premiere on August 21. Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, which will premiere on Amazon on September 2, will be in direct clash with it.
