The Game of Thrones spin-off lands tonight on OCS. What time will it air?
It’s the big day for fans of Game Of Thrones. More than three years after the conclusion of the adventures of Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and Tyrion Lannister, the universe returns in the form of a first spin-off. HBO sees things big since the channel calls on the author to write the script. George RR Martin collaborates for the occasion with Ryan J.Condal, who signs here his first solo series. Behind the camera, on the other hand, it is a regular in the franchise who is making a comeback.
It was Miguel Sapochnik who directed the ten episodes of this first season. The director has worked on several episodes of the parent series, including the unforgettable “Battle of the Bastards”. On the casting side, several very familiar faces have been invited. The fans of Doctor Who recognize, for example, Matt Smith, who played the eccentric character for more than three seasons. Here, his score will be much less jovial.
The actor will play Prince Daemon Targaryen, he will play opposite Emma D’Arcy (Truth Seekers) and Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel). Note that Rhys Ifans, whom we saw in Good Morning England and Love at first sight in Notting Hill, will also be on the trip. He will play a certain Otto Hightower, father of Alicent Hightower and who will briefly be the hand of the king.
What is it about ?
200 years before the death of Robert Baratheon, the Seven Kingdoms live in a time of relative peace. But as King Viserys I dies, the heirs are engaged in a merciless battle to take his place on the throne. Within the Targaryen clan, a civil war is brewing, and the dance of the dragons is about to begin. The series will explore the beginning of the downfall of the once superpowered House.
The fans of Game Of Thrones know, you have to get up early to avoid spoilers. OCS has chosen a simultaneous broadcast with the United States, so it is at 3 a.m. that the French platform gives us an appointment. The regulars will undoubtedly be there, it must be said that the prospect of having to dodge all the conversations at the coffee machine tomorrow morning is not the most pleasant. This return will nevertheless sign that of the traditional weekly meetings, provided that the public adheres to this new proposal from HBO. Verdict in a few hours, at 3 a.m. on August 22 on OCS.
