A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight is an upcoming American medieval fantasy television series developed by HBO. It is an adaption of the Dunk and Egg novellas by George R. R. Martin and it takes place in between House of the Dragon and Game of Thrones.
The Hedge Knight centers around the hedge knight Dunk and his young squire Egg, 90 years before the War of the Five Kings.
Conception and development
The series has been announced to be greenlit to full series on April 12, 2023, which culminates a decade of conversation as George R.R. Martin confirmed back in 2013 that he had been in discussion with HBO over a possible adaptation of the Tales of Dunk and Egg short stories. The adaptation of the Dunk and Egg stories, helmed by Steve Conrad, was first reported to the public on 30 November 2021, however. On 9 March 2022, George R. R. Martin confirmed these rumors and revealed that the first season would be an adaptation of the first novella, The Hedge Knight. He further explained that the series would not be called Dunk & Egg, as it could be mistaken for a sitcom by viewers unfamiliar with the stories. Instead, the most likely title is either A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms or The Hedge Knight.
The production of the series has stopped due to the WGA's strike and will resume once an agreement has been found.
