With record watching numbers for the HBO fantasy series, any concerns that House of the Dragon couldn’t live up to the enormous expectations of a Game of Thrones spin-off series were immediately allayed.
There is still a great deal of the story to be told in this adaptation of George R.R. Martin‘s Fire and Blood novel, which takes place before the events of Game of Thrones.
We learned about the Greens and Blacks in Season 1, learned about the conflict between King Viserys‘ second wife Alicent Hightower and daughter Rhaenrya, and learned about the many cousins and grandchildren involved in the Targaryen dynasty.
Here is everything you need to know about the return of the epic drama, as confirmed by HBO, that season 2 is already in production.
House of the Dragon Season 1 Ending Explained
The most critical moment in House of the Dragon‘s season one finale, The Black Queen, occurred at Storm’s End. After being refused the support of House Baratheon, young Lucerys Velaryon was pursued by his cousin Aemond, who was seeking vengeance for the loss of his eye earlier in the series.
Aemond said he merely wanted vengeance and an eye from Lucerys, but he couldn’t control his dragon Vhargar, who devoured Lucerys. The death of Rhaenrya’s second son ran counter to Alicent Hightower’s peace proposal, which included King Aegon controlling King’s Landing and Rhaenyra living on Dragonstone.
As a result of Aemond’s acts, a battle between the Blacks (Rhaenyra and Daemon) and the Greens (Alicent, Otto, and Aegon) has begun, which will be the focus of season 2 and beyond.
Expected Release Date of House of the Dragon Season 2
HBO has announced that Season 2 of House of the Dragon will air on Sky and now in the UK. Although production on the new season has begun, it won’t be finished until the summer of 2023.
That suggests that season 2 of House of the Dragon will most likely premiere around 2024. “House of the Dragon is already proving to be a ratings hit, and we expect it will continue from strength to strength thanks to the engaging plot and great production standards,” said Zai Bennett, managing director of content at Sky.
Cast and Characters: Who May Appear in Season 2?
Season 2 will see a sizable portion of the main cast return. As rivals Alicent Hightower and Rhaenyra Targaryen, Olivia Cooke and Emma D’Arcy, along with Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, Steve Toussaint as the Sea Snake Corlys Velaryon, and Eve Best as the Queen Who Never Was, Rhaenys Targaryen, should hopefully appear in a lot more upcoming episodes.
The characters Aegon II Targaryen and Aemond Targaryen, who will be portrayed by Tom Glynn-Carney and Ewan Mitchell in the last episodes of season 1, will also have a bigger role in season 2.
Additionally, we might see a lot more of Fabien Frankel as Commander of the Kingsguard Ser Criston Cole, Matthew Needham as Larys Strong, and Rhys Ifans as the cunning Otto Hightower.
Season 2 will also require a new cast and characters, and we’ll keep you informed as soon as any casting news is revealed. When asked if Emily Carey and Milly Alcock, who played little Rhaenyra and young Alicent, may make a comeback, Emily Carey revealed that the popular duo had been discussed for use in flashback scenes.
The Plot: What We Can Expect From House of the Dragon Season 2?
The Dance of Dragons is anticipated to open House of the Dragon’s second season. Following the demise of King Viserys, the epic Targaryen civil war is known as The Dance of Dragons (Paddy Considine).
The Greens, who support Tom Glynn-Aegon Carney’s II for the throne, and the Blacks, who support Rhaenyra (Olivia Cooke) for the position, are the two sides in the civil war. If you thought House of the Dragon was interesting thus far, you haven’t seen anything yet. The Dance of Dragons is packed with enormous battles, significant twists, and shocks galore.

Prior to sending them into battle, you must comprehend the complexity of these people. “Series two will follow the patterns that fans of Game of Thrones’ middle run have been accustomed to, but it will have been earned, and viewers will feel the tragedies because we put the work in,” the showrunner said.
