(CNN Spanish) --

If you don't like dragons or the entire "Game of Thrones" universe, maybe you should prepare yourself and silence the phrase "House of the Dragon" on your social networks.

A new era in this popular story written by George RR Martin and broadcast on HBO is about to begin.

"House of Dragon" is a prequel to "Game of Thrones."

In this production we will see the history of the Targaryen family, that is, the house where Daenerys, the mother of dragons or Khaleesi, came from, played in "Game of Thrones" by Emilia Clarke.

The series is based on the book "Fire and Blood" by George RR Martin and is set 200 years before the events of "Game of Thrones".


Important facts from the premiere of "House of the Dragon"

As with "Game of Thrones," "House of Dragon" will air on Sundays on HBO.

For those who prefer to tune in through their devices or via streaming, the episodes will also be available on HBO Max.

Something important to know is that HBO will not release all the episodes at once, so you will not be able to 

binge watch

this production.

The series debuts on August 21 at 9:00 pm Miami time, and will feature 10 episodes in total, each revealed on subsequent Sundays.

The episode number one of the series will be called "The Heirs of the Dragon", or "The heirs of the dragon", in Spanish.

The second episode is called "The Rogue Prince" or "The rebel prince".

HBO has not released the other eight titles for the remaining "House of the Dragon" episodes.

According to HBO, the series can be enjoyed in 4K Ultra HD, HDR 10, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.
