The series consists of 36 episodes, but it is unknown how closely it will resemble the original and whether the Arab version will be a loose spin-off or a reinterpretation.
Its synopsis, however, seems quite similar to "Game of Thrones" as it is about a deadly conflict between three fictional medieval kingdoms: the kingdom of Orchidia, the kingdom of Samara and the kingdom of Assyria.

The rulers of the three kingdoms are fighting for the throne through every possible means. The series will also be consistent with "Games of Thrones’" dramatic arc by depicting grisly battle scenes, power struggles, amoral social climbers, vendettas and familial conflicts, as well as existential themes of man and fate.
