A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: Season 1 is the first season of A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms. It consists of six episodes. It will premiere in late 2025 on HBO and Max. It is based on The Hedge Knight, the first of the Dunk & Egg novellas by George R.R. Martin.

Premise[]

A century before the events of ‘Game of Thrones,’ two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros… a young, naïve but courageous knight, Ser Duncan the Tall, and his diminutive squire, Egg. Set in an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living memory, great destinies, powerful foes, and dangerous exploits all await these improbable and incomparable friends.[2]

  1. A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: Season 1 takes place eighty-nine years before Game of Thrones according to its FTIA page. In "You Win or You Die," Jorah Mormont receives a pardon stating that the current year is 298. This places A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms in 209 AC, the same date as in the books.
