‘Game Of Thrones’ Prequel ‘House Of The Dragon’ Halts Production Due To Covid-19 Outbreak

There’s been trouble on set of the Games Of Thrones prequel House Of The Dragon this week, as production has been forced to come to a halt due to a confirmed case of Covid-19 within the crew.

The news that one of the crew members tested positive to the virus was confirmed a few days ago on Monday, 19th July. They are currently self-isolating.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, HBO released a statement on the topic saying:

“As part of the rigorous testing implemented for all production employees, a Zone A production member on House Of The Dragon tested positive for COVID-19.”

“In compliance with industry guidelines, the production member is in isolation, and close contacts will be required to quarantine.”

If all goes to plan, production will resume this week.

The show, House Of The Dragon, is set 300 years before the story set in Game Of Thrones. It will follow the House of Targaryen, and is based on George R.R. Martin’s 2018 book Fire & Blood.
