The creator of the epic Game Of Thrones book series, George R.R. Martin, expressed his excitement for the upcoming HBO spinoff series House of the Dragon with a post that was shared on his official website on Wednesday. 

In the message, the 73-year-old writer revealed he had been shown a rough cut of the upcoming series' first episode and he 'loved' it, before giving his best wishes to the project's cast and crew. 

"I am anticipating House of Dragon pretty eagerly myself, for what it's worth. Okay, I am hardly objective. And I know a lot of what you will be seeing. (I, um, wrote the book)," he wrote.

The writer then expressed that he had seen an early version of the show's pilot, which had impressed him greatly. 

"I've seen a rough cut of the first episode. And loved it. It's dark, it's powerful, it's visceral… just the way I like my epic fantasy," he noted.

The forthcoming series is currently set to serve as a prequel to the groundbreaking HBO show and will premiere in 2022.
