We won't be witnessing the Dance of the Dragons for quite some time. 

After that epic season one finale, HBO is making sure House of the Dragon viewers aren't expecting a follow-up in the new year. 

"Don't expect it in '23, but I think sometime in '24," the network's content chief Casey Bloys told Vulture Oct. 27. "We're just starting to put the plan together, and just like last time, there are so many unknowns. It's not to be coy or secretive, but you don't want to say it's going to be ready on this date, and then you have to move it."

So, in the meantime, could Game of Thrones fans get to see the first season of Jon Snow's much-anticipated spinoff? According to Bloys, don't count on it, noting that we'll likely catch back up with Rhaenyra and Alicent before heading up to the Wall.

"I think probably the next thing would be season two [of House of the Dragon]," he said. "I try not to comment too much on development, so there's not a whole lot to say, other than when we find the story that George [R.R. Martin] is happy with and we're happy with, we'll move forward."

However, Bloys did say another Game of Thrones spinoff would be "nice," considering it would allow viewers to see a new side of the Seven Kingdoms every year. 

Martin himself confirmed that a Jon Snow-centric series is in development in July, writing on his blog that the show is tentatively titled Snow and that Kit Harington, who played the fan-favorite character, conceived the idea.

But the writer cautioned fans not to get their hopes up, considering three other spinoffs—The Hedge Knight, The Sea Snake and Ten Thousand Ships—are all also in development.

"Please note: nothing has been green lit yet, and there is no guarantee when or if it will be…on any of these shows," Martin explained. "The likelihood of all four series getting on the air…well, I'd love it, but that's not the way it works, usually."

In the meantime, you can catch up on season one of House of the Dragon, now streaming on HBO Max.
