The penultimate episode of House of the Dragon was difficult to top: Rhaenys emerging from beneath the flagstones on the back of her dragon. Sensational. But who could have predicted it would be savagely chopped – er, topped – by the finale’s grand dragon moment?
Not everyone survives in true Game of Thrones fashion, and the consequences will be devastating. We know you can’t wait for Season 2, so here’s everything we know about House of the Dragon’s upcoming second season.
House Of The Dragon Season 2 Potential Release Date
Unfortunately, HBO Max hasn’t revealed a premiere date for House of the Dragon season 2. But in April 2023, the network announced that production had begun on the show’s second season. The new episodes will be filmed at Leavesden Studios in the U.K.
Below we have given a Tweet related to House of the Dragon season 2.
“House of the Dragon has returned. We are thrilled to be shooting again with members of our original family as well as new talents on both sides of the camera,” said series co-creator Ryan Condal. “All your favorite characters will soon be conspiring at the council tables, marching with their armies and riding their dragons into battle. We can’t wait to share what we have in store.” Francesca Orsi said:
“We are beyond proud of what the entire House of the Dragon team has accomplished with season one.
“Our phenomenal cast and crew undertook a massive challenge and exceeded all expectations, delivering a show that has already established itself as must-see-TV. A huge thank you [to co-creator and executive producer George RR Martin and co-creator and showrunners Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik] for leading us on this journey.
“We couldn’t be more excited to continue bringing to life the epic saga of House Targaryen with season two.”
House Of The Dragon Season 2 Cast
The upcoming season two of House of the Dragon is set to be action-packed, with new conflicts and alliances emerging. Here’s what we know about the cast:
Prince Lucerys and his dragon Arrax will not be returning, as they were killed by Vhagar in season one. King Viserys, played by Paddy Considine, will also not return, leaving his children to fight for the Iron Throne. Emma D’Arcy will reprise her role as Rhaenyra Targaryen, the heir to the throne. Olivia Cooke will return as Queen Alicent, who opposes Rhaenyra’s claim. Matt Smith will be back as Prince Daemon and Eve Best as Princess Rhaenys, both of whom support Rhaenyra.
Rhys Ifans and Fabien Cole will return as Otto Hightower and Ser Criston Cole, respectively, in support of Aegon and Alicent. The civil war between the Greens and Blacks will continue, with several Targaryen and Velaryon family members returning:
- Tom Glynn-Carney as Aegon Targaryen
- Ewan Mitchell as Aemond Targaryen
- Phia Saban as Helaena Targaryen
- Harry Collett as Jacaerys Velaryon
- Phoebe Campbell as Rhaena Targaryen
- Bethany Antonia as Baela Targaryen
Rhaenyra’s younger children, Joffrey Velaryon, Aegon ‘the younger’ Targaryen, and Viserys Targaryen, may be aged up later in the series. Corlys Velaryon’s fate is uncertain, but we hope to see Steve Toussaint reprise his role. Laenor may not return, but we’d love to see more of John Macmillan’s portrayal. Matthew Needham’s Larys Strong is also expected to return. Let’s check out the release date of the movie Joker 2.
What Is The Story Of House Of The Dragon?
House of the Dragon is based on George R.R. Martin’s novel Fire & Blood and is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones. In his spoiler-free review, Phil Mutz (PureWow’s vice president of entertainment and news) explains that it’s much faster-paced than Game of Thrones.
MATT SMITH’s NEWS PAGE UK posted about the House Of Dragon 2 announcement. You can read the Tweet below.
“So much happens in an hour that Game of Thrones would have likely been spread over multiple episodes,” he wrote. “This is because there is a more focused story to tell (though it is no less grand).”

Conclusion: House of the Dragon fans eagerly await the second season, which has begun production but has no release date. As the civil war between the Targaryen and Velaryon families continues, new conflicts and alliances will emerge. Some characters will leave while others return. Based on George R.R. Martin’s novel Fire & Blood and set 200 years before Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon has a more focused and faster-paced story. In the coming season, dragon battles and political drama will increase.
