HBO quickly renewed house of the Dragon. Soon after the first episode, HBO announced that the Game of Thrones prequel would return for a second season. The first episode had the most viewers of any new HBO original series ever.
“We are so happy with what everyone on the House of the Dragon team has done in Season 1. Our amazing cast and crew took on a huge challenge and blew away everyone’s expectations, making a show that has already become a must-see.” In a statement, HBO’s Executive Vice President of Programming, Francesca Orsi, said, “We couldn’t be happier to bring the epic story of House Targaryen to life with Season 2.”
Here’s what we know about the second season of House of the Dragon.
House Of The Dragon Season 2: Is The Released Date Revealed?
We hope that House of the Dragon Season 2 will come back soon, but HBO hasn’t said anything yet about when it will be on. Filming will start in the spring of 2023 at the Warner Bros. Studios in Hertfordshire and then move to Céceras, Spain. In The Face, the author of a profile of actor Ewan Mitchell says, “Most of his year will be spent filming Hotd.” In March 2023, Matt Smith said that he had just gotten all of the scripts. At Comic Con in Abu Dhabi, he said, “They are very late. Isn’t that always the way? They are always so late.”
Season 2 might not come out until 2024. Max Casey Bloys, CEO of Hbo and Hbo, told Vulture, “Don’t expect it in ’23, but I think it will happen sometime in ’24.” “We just started making a plan, and just like last time, there are a lot of unknowns. You don’t want to be sneaky or secretive, but you also don’t want to say it will be ready on this date and then have to change it.”
Bloys said in February 2023 that it’s “a good guess” that House of the Dragon won’t be eligible for the 2024 Emmys, which means it will start airing after May 31, 2024. Summer or fall of 2024 seems like a good guess for when the show will come out.

House Of The Dragon Season 2: News
Showrunner Ryan Condal says a few new dragons will be in Season 2 of House of the Dragon. Game of Thrones was the first thing to bring George R.R. Martin’s huge fantasy world from A Song of Ice and Fire to life, including its three flying dragons that breathe fire. As soon as the first show’s spinoff, House of the Dragon, came out, it was clear that the “dragon” part would be given much attention since it introduced a whole family of weaponized dragons.
Season 1 of House of the Dragons on HBO was a huge hit, so it shouldn’t be surprising that season 2 will have even more dragons. Showrunner Condal just hinted that five new dragons would be added.
Condal told the crowd at a Fyc Hbo event in New York about the news, which excited everyone (via Comicbook.com). Condal said, “Production starts pretty soon,” He added, “In Season 2, you’ll meet five new dragons.”
House Of The Dragon Season 2: Cast Expected
Olivia Cooke (Alicent Hightower), Emma D’arcy (Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen), and Matt Smith (Prince Daemon Targaryen) are all expected to play their roles again, as are Fabien Frankel (Criston Cole), Eve Best (Rhaenys Targaryen), Steve Toussaint (Corlys Velaryon), Rhys Ifans (Otto Hightower), and Sonoy.
We can also expect to see Tom Glynn-Carney, who plays Aegon II Targaryen; Ewan Mitchell, who plays Aemond Targaryen; and Phia Saban, who plays Helena Targaryen, back. Bethany Antonia (Baela Targaryen), Phoebe Campbell (Rhana Targaryen), and Harry Collet (Jacaerys Velaryon) will come back as well.
Rhaenyra and Alicent’s younger selves, played by Milly Alcock and Emily Carney, are not expected to return. However, Ryan Condal, who made the show, didn’t completely rule out future appearances. He said, “I mean, look, I don’t know.” Rhaenyra and Alicent, when they were younger, “aren’t part of the story we’re telling yet.” “yet” is the key word here because it leaves the door open for the future.
Co-showrunner Miguel Sapochnik Will Not Return For Season Two
Miguel Sapochnik, who helped run House of Dragons, is leaving. The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news, said, “Sources say Sapochnik is leaving the show after working hard on the Game of Thrones prequel for three years.” Ryan Condal will now be the showrunner for House of Dragon’s Sole and will work closely with George R.R. Martin, who also helped make the show.
Sapochnik said in a statement, “Working in the “Game of Thrones” world for the past few years has been an honor and a privilege, especially the last two with the amazing cast and crew of “House of the Dragon.” ” I’m so happy with what we did in the first season and how enthusiastic our viewers were about it. It was tough to decide to move on, but I know it’s the right choice for me, personally and professionally.
Even so, knowing that Alan will join the show makes me feel excellent. I’ve known and respected him for a long time, and I don’t think this beloved series could be in better hands. I’m so happy to be still a part of the HBO and House of the Dragon families, and of course, I wish Ryan and his team success and the best for season two and beyond.”
In January 2023, Puck said that Sapochnik had left because he and his wife had been fighting for a long time about her being on the show. Sapochnik reportedly wanted his wife, Alexis Raben, to join the producing team, but Hbo said she needed more experience and turned him down.
So it sounds like HBO brought in a mediator, but they couldn’t figure out how to settle the dispute, so Sapochnik left. In a statement at the time, HBO said, “While we would have loved for Miguel to continue in the same role, we are thrilled to continue working with him in this new creative capacity.”
How Many Episodes Will House Of The Dragon Season 2 Be?
Like the first season, it will probably have ten episodes. George R.R. Martin said it would take four 10-episode seasons to tell his story, and HBO tends to keep the lengths of its seasons the same, despite what it did with the last two seasons of Game of Thrones.
