Composer Ramin Djawadi, who rose to fame thanks to his indelible score on the HBO hit series “Game of Thrones,” will return for the network’s coming prequel series “House of the Dragon.”

A source has confirmed the news to Insider after reports first appeared on Los Siete Reinos and writer Adam Whitehead’s blog, the Wertzone. Both “Game of Thrones” blog sites noticed Djawadi’s updated resume on his agency’s website included the pilot episode for “House of the Dragon” among his television score work.

Djawadi has won two Emmys, and been nominated seven times for outstanding music composition. His back-to-back wins came in 2018 and 2019 for “Game of Thrones.”

Djawadi has also completed several national tours of the “Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience,” during which he conducts a live orchestra and chorus in playing the greatest hits from the HBO’s fantasy-drama score.

Movie and TV fans are also likely familiar with Djawadi’s work on HBO’s other hit drama, “Westworld.” He’s also the composer behind the”Iron Man” (2006) movie score, as well as “Pacific Rim” (2013) and “A Wrinkle in Time” (2018). The 46-year-old musician got his start in Hollywood score composing after working with Hans Zimmer.

The coming “Game of Thrones” prequel series, “House of the Dragon,” is currently in production. The show is helmed by Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik, and will not feature any characters from “Game of Thrones,” nor are the original series showrunners David Benioff or D.B. Weiss involved with the project. You can read everything we know so far about the show here.
