House of the Dragon viewers are eager for season two of the Game of Thrones prequel spinoff series. Many are eager to see who will succeed King Viserys I now that the civil war known as the “Dance of the Dragons” has begun. The show’s launch shattered records for any new original series in HBO history, and it’s based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood novel, which is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, so renewing it was a no-brainer. Season one was a prologue, establishing the people and their objectives, but season two, according to show co-creator Ryan Condal, would be a “bloody feast” when the true fight begins. He can’t wait to learn more about the backgrounds of secondary characters like Rhaenyra and Alicent. The second season is rumored to be already in production in London, with filming beginning in the new year. According to Deadline, HBO is shooting for a Summer 2024 release, with the second season being shorter at eight episodes; however, there is no official release date as of yet, and Condal claims it’s still “to be determined.” Exciting conflicts, political intrigue, and the lives of beloved characters in the balance await readers of the second installment of House of the Dragon.
