Hold on to your dragons, folks! The second season of “House of the Dragon” is just around the corner, and we’ve got the hot scoop on what to expect.
Fans were left breathless by the fiery finale to the first season, as two contenders fought for the Iron Throne. But fear not, dear fans, for the show’s creators promise us that the upcoming season will be even more epic, with a full-on civil war that’s sure to raise the stakes (and the body count).
A few familiar faces will return, including Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower, Emma D’Arcy as Rhaenyra Targaryen, and Matt Smith as the unforgettable Daemon Targaryen (who’s also Rhaenyra’s uncle and husband). Along with them, we’ll see new faces like Gayle Rankin as Alys Rivers, Simon Russell Beale as Ser Simon Strong, and Freddie Fox as Ser Gwayne Hightower. In addition, Steve Toussaint returns as Lord Corlys Velaryon (aka The Sea Snake).
But wait, there’s more! We’ve also learned that the show will have eight episodes in total and is set to premiere sometime in 2024. And while Miguel Sapochnik (a “Game of Thrones” veteran) has left the show, we’re still in good hands with Ryan Condal and Alan Taylor at the helm.
So get ready to pledge your allegiance to your favorite dragon riders, sharpen your swords, and prepare for war. Despite winter’s arrival, season 2 of “House of the Dragon” is just around the corner!
