‘The house of the dragon’: everything we know about season 2 of the ‘Game of Thrones’ prequel on HBO Max

Nobody argues since ‘The house of the dragon’ is the new star series of HBO. Initially there were some skeptics about the possibility that the public had no interest in this prequel to ‘Game of Thrones’ but his tremendous success has made it clear that it is. For this reason, HBO quickly renewed it for a second season, this new adaptation of the play by George R.R. Martin.

Next we will review Everything We Know So Far About ‘House Of The Dragon’ Season 2, from the changes at a creative level to its possible release date. I remind you that this article was born with the aim of being updated whenever there is some kind of news about the series.

The history

Let us remember that the basis of ‘The house of the dragon’ is the book ‘Fire and Blood’ by George RR Martin, allowing himself small licenses but following in general terms everything that is proposed there. For this reason, we can consider the civil war of the Targaryens, also known as the Dance of the Dragons, to have begun and that it will change Westeros forever.

The death of Lucerys has been the trigger for a conflict that seemed to be avoided at all costs. Rhaenyra’s angry face at the end of the first season makes it clear that the times for diplomacy are behind us and that strong emotions await us in season 2.

When does ‘House of the Dragon’ season 2 premiere on HBO Max?

The filming of the new episodes will not start until March 2023, so we can be sure that season 2 of ‘The house of the dragon’ will be released in 2024. It would be impossible before because of the hard post-production work it requires. The big question is knowing the exact date -perhaps there will be a direct confrontation with the second season of ‘The Rings of Power’?- and nothing is known about that yet.

Cast and protagonists

House Of The Dragon Cast

All the survivors of the first season will appear again in the second, which means the return of, among others, Olivia Cooke (Alicent Hightower), Emma D’Arcy (Rhaenira Targaryen) matt smith (Daemon Targaryens) Rhys Ifans (Otto Hightower), Steve Toussaint (Corlys Velaryon), Eve Best (Rhaenys Targaryen) Fabien Frankel (Christopher Cole), Sonoya Mizuno (Mysaria), Graham McTavish (Harold Westerling) matthew needham (Larys Strong), Jefferson Hall (Jason Lannister and Tyland Lannister), harry collett (Jacaerys “Jace” Velaryon), Tom Glynn Carney (Aegon II Targaryens), Evan Mitchell (Aemond Targaryens) Bethany Antonia (Baela Targaryens) Phoebe Campbell (Rhaena Targaryens) and Phia Savan (Helaena Targaryen).

It is to be hoped that there some new character in the second season, mainly in relation to allies of either side, but HBO has not yet officially announced anything about it.

With one less showrunner

Miguel Sapochnik

Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik, two veterans of ‘Game of Thrones’, both served as showrunners for the first season, but in the second Condal will take on that task alone. Yes indeed, to make up for Sapochnik’s departurewho also directed several episodes of ‘The House of the Dragon’, has signed on alan taylorbut only to deal with the staging of several episodes.

Filming hasn’t even started yet, so you’ll have to be a little patient until the first official images arrive.
