We might have seen their demise in Game of Thrones, but how about some familiar faces in the prequel?

House of the Dragon is a prequel to Game of Thrones. Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of season 2, which will delve deeper into the world of Westeros and the Targaryen dynasty.

However, there is one question that has been on everyone's mind since the show was announced: where are all the White Walkers?

The White Walkers were one of the most iconic and terrifying elements of A Song of Ice and Fire. They were the undead creatures that haunted the lands beyond the Wall. So why are they missing in House of the Dragon?

The answer lies in the show's timeline. The series takes place 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones. This means that the White Walkers have not yet appeared.

According to the show's lore, the White Walkers were created by the Children of the Forest thousands of years ago to protect themselves from the First Men. The Night King, the leader of the White Walkers, was also created during this time.

But House of the Dragon takes place during the reign of the Targaryen dynasty. The show explores the early years of King Viserys I's reign and the events that led to the Dragons' downfall.

The White Walkers are not part of that story, and therefore have no place in the show. As Redditor AdamALC8756 noted, "they are in fact literally chilling beyond the wall."

However, this does not mean that House of the Dragon will lack the features that made Game of Thrones so successful.

The series will have its fair share of the battles, political intrigue, and epic moments that fans have come to expect from the franchise.

The focus on the Targaryens also means that we will get to see some of the most iconic dragons in the show's history.

House of the Dragon is shaping up to be an epic series that will satisfy Game of Thrones fans and attract new viewers to the world of Westeros.

According to speculations, season 2 will premiere in 2024.
