Enter House of the Dragon, which begins streaming 21 August.
which the streaming giant is hoping will spark your love affair with the Iron Throne once more.
And unlike the final seasons of Game of Thrones, smug book readers once again have a heads-up on what's about to play out before it happens on your screen.
The book guiding this one is Fire & Blood, and while it's written by George R R Martin
it's written in the style of an actual Westerosi history book. Basically, it's one for the uber fans, and was described by critics as "homework".
It's set more than 150 years before everything that made up the Game of Thrones you know.
In House of the Dragon, Targaryens still sit on the Iron Throne. And boy howdy there are lots of them.
Succession is the topic of the day to begin this story, and by the end, you can expect plenty of those Targaryen house words — fire and blood.
