Be in-the-know

It’s the start of another month! The spooky season is finally ending and this means we can finally focus on the upcoming holiday season. We know you’re excited for all the festive gifts and holiday trips the season will bring about, so we’re giving you more to look forward to. From HBO working on a new Game of Thrones prequel titled House of the Dragon to the launch of Alber Elbaz x Tod’s Happy Moments Collection — here are the latest bites you’ll be hyped to hear.

Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon, gets an HBO series order

After deciding to cancel their initial Naomi Watts-led prequel, HBO announces a different one set in Westeros. Called the House of the Dragon, the upcoming series will focus on the House of Targaryen. The Game of Thrones prequel is rumoured to be set 300 years before the events that transpired in the series and will show the origins of the house. Like the original series, this 10-episode project will be based on George R.R. Martin’s book; this time, Fire & Blood. Excited? Let’s hope this one will do better justice to the lore of the books.

Jennifer Aniston hints at another Friends reunion

Keeping her fans guessing seems to be one of Jennifer Aniston’s mission in life this week. During an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show last Monday, the actress spilled that she and the other Friends cast are “working on something”. Then, when she guested on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, she hinted on the secret project again but remained tight-lipped on the juicy details. But, sorry die-hard fans, it won’t be a reboot — she made that clear, and so have the rest of the cast in the past. While no one knows yet for sure what’s in store for us, we can’t help but feel so excited to see the gang together again. Would it be a vlog, a movie, or a wholly different series? What do you think?
