House of the Dragon season 3 is coming faster, season 4 possible

Filming the second season of house of the dragon is on the way. However, plans for the third season of House of the Dragon are currently in development, with a possible fourth season in preparation.

When is Season 3 of House of the Dragon coming?

When talking to meetingFrancesca Orsi, HBO’s head of drama, responded to a previous report that Season 3 of House of the Dragon is already in the pipeline. Orsi said the show is focused on Season 2, but the channel wants to start Season 3 “sooner” once Season 2 is over.

“We’re aiming to get Season 3 off to a faster start after Season 2, but that hasn’t been formalized yet as we’re just trying to get Season 2 off the ground at the moment,” Orsi said.

Deadline previously reported that the second season will consist of eight episodes, compared to ten episodes in the first season. A big fight that was planned for Season 2 has already been postponed to Season 3. As the story drags on, there have been talks of a possible fourth season. Co-creators Ryan Condal and George RR Martin have debated whether the series should end after Season 3 or Season 4. Orsi thinks season 4 is very likely.

“It’s not finished yet, it’s still being discussed,” said Orsi. “George and Ryan will meet after the writers’ strike. They originally planned to meet before the strike to find out when the series itself would end. Is it four seasons? I don’t think it will be less than four from where I’m at now. But it could be more. We will see.”

Based on Martin’s 2018 book Fire & Blood, House of the Dragon chronicles the rise and fall of House Targaryen and the devastating civil war known as the “Dance of the Dragons.” The series takes place 200 years before the start of Game of Thrones.

House of the Dragon Season 1 premiered on August 21, 2022. The ensemble cast included Paddy Considine, Emma D’Arcy, Olivia Cooke, Matt Smith, Rhys Ifans, Eve Best, Milly Alcock, Emily Carey, Steve Toussaint, Sonoya Mizuno and Ewan Mitchell, Fabien Frankel and Tom Glynn-Carney.
