House of the Dragon Season 2: Release Date, Cast, Plot, And Everything You Need To Know


House of the Dragon, a spin-off of Game of Thrones, started airing in the summer of 2022. The scandalous, dragon-filled HBO show is still a hot topic after its first season ended. The season finale of the show was one of the most-watched shows on HBO since Game of Thrones concluded. With such a popular show and so much backstory, many people are wondering where the show will go following some shocking deaths in the season finale.

The ten episodes of Season 1 packed a lot in, yet certain of the most famous family members from Game of Thrones were left out. Fans of the first series may also be wondering where the ancestors of their favorite characters are in all this King’s Landing-centered drama. What about the Starks and the Night’s Watch?

With so much more to learn about the world of this prequel, here is what we know so far about what the upcoming season of House of the Dragon might be like.

House of the Dragon Season 2 Renewal

House of the Dragon was picked up for a second season by HBO very quickly. Five days after the first episode of Season 1 aired, HBO officially gave the show the go-ahead. They did this by pointing out that the first episode had the largest audience ever for an HBO drama on its first night (almost 10 million), and that it had more than 20 million viewers on linear, broadcasting, and on-demand services in its first five days. Even though that renewal happened quickly, it took longer for Game of Thrones to be renewed. In 2011, just 2 days after the first episode, Game of Thrones was picked up for a second season.
