As per CBR, George R.R. Martin while on the podcast The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of spoke about the HBO prequel series. While there were only three dragons on GoT and all of them were commanded by Daenerys, Martin revealed the members of House Targaryen on the prequel series will have a lot more. Martin said, " I've always thought this was a cool story, it's one I like, so I'm looking forward to seeing it come alive on screen... And of course, I'm looking forward to the dragons! Obviously, I love the dragons." 

He added "We had three of them in Game of Thrones but now we got like 17 of them. And hopefully, they'll each have their own personalities, they'll be instantly recognizable when you see them, the colours and all of that because the dragons do have personalities in the books, and it'll be great to see that come alive. And the dragon riders. That's all pretty cool." Fans got a peek into the history of dragons through GoT, however, the prequel series will delve much deeper into the history of dragons when the Targaryens were in reign.
