What to Expect in House of the Dragon Season 2?

Season 1 ended with the death of King Viserys, which threw the Targaryens into complete chaos over the next rightful heir — Prince Aegon or Princess Rhaenyra. The next season signals the beginning of the Dance of the Dragons, with each side gathering as many allies and dragons as they can to ensure the other’s defeat.

The series currently stars Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Sonoya Mizuno, Graham McTavish, Jefferson Hall, David Horovitch, Matthew Needham, Bill Patterson, Gavin Spokes, Wil Johnson, John Macmillan, Savannah Steyn, and Theo Nate. Season 2 also welcomes the addition of Gayle Rankin, Russell Beale, Freddie Fox, and Abubakar Salim.

Based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood, House of the Dragon chronicles the rise and the downfall of the Targaryens – the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria. It takes place 300 years before the events of the award-winning series adaptation of Game of Thrones, which aired its final episode in 2019.

House of the Dragon hails from George R.R. Martin, Ryan Condal, and Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik, with Condal and Sapochnik also serving as showrunners. Martin, Sapochnik, Condal, Vince Gerardis, and Sara Lee Hess are executive producers.
