What We Know About House of the Dragon Season 2
As the first season of HBO’s House of the Dragon draws to a staggeringly exciting close, what do we know about the promised season 2 of this hit series? Let’s take a look!
Will There Even Be Season 2?
Yes, there will be! The renewal announcement for Season 2 came just five days after its record-breaking premiere aired. There’s speculation that there will be a lot more than just two seasons, but that will have to wait for now. So there will be another season about the family to enjoy. However, if you’re still confused, here’s a look at the Targaryen family tree chart to help you.
When Will We Get It?
Of course, a lavish and big-budget spectacular like this is not simple to make. There can be up to a year of filming before a show this big even hits the visual effects and post-editing phases. Production of Season 2 will start in early 2023, so we should see it hit the popular summer or fall seasons of 2024.
Who Will Return?
While the hair-raising finale gave us some idea of who will live to Season 2, nothing is set in stone with this series! We should see Rhaenyra Targaryen, Alicent Hightower, Daemon Targaryen, Otto Hightower, Ser Criston Cole, Corlys Targaryen, Rhaenys Targaryen, Jacaerys Velaryon, Aegon II, and Aemond Targaryen return, and recasting is not anticipated at this point. We should also see twins Ser Arryk and Erryk Cargyll age up to join the cast.
New characters expected are Cregan Stark, Viserys and Alicent’s last child, Daeron
What Will Happen in Season 2?
Season 2 is expected to focus on the run-up to the Targaryen civil war, the Dance of Dragons. However, there are a lot of question marks around how long House of the Dragon will run, especially as the final seasons of the Game of Thrones franchise were criticized for drifting from the book material. How events will be divided between seasons is currently unknown, but it is expected to run for three to four seasons in total. Other spin-offs have also been promised.
Are you excited about Season 2 of this popular series? We certainly are.
