House of the Dragon Season 2 Release Date: Cast| Plot| Trailer| Latest Updates!
The violent yet successful conclusion to House of the Dragon featured an unexpected demise and a perilous dance between dragons. The prequel series took us to a time when House Targaryen ruled supremely with an army of dragons at their disposal, around two centuries before the events of the original smash hit.
Everything was not well, though, inside the walls of King's Landing, where rivalries and conflicts within the family brought it dangerously close to civil war, which finally broke out after the passing of King Viserys Targaryen.
After only airing its first episode, US network HBO promptly renewed the drama series House of the Dragon, so we know the plot will continue. Here is What we currently know about season 2!
What is the Release Date for House of the Dragon Season 2?
Although Season 2 of House of the Dragon doesn't yet have a release date, we do know what year viewers may anticipate it to be released. Sadly, people who are really curious about what will happen to the Greens and the Blacks in the future will have to wait at least until the spring or summer of 2024 (via Digital Spy).
Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer of HBO and HBO Max has informed audiences that we shouldn't anticipate Season 2 in 2023 but rather sometime in 2024 due to the significant “unknowns” in its creation. Bloys' response indicates that pre-production hasn't yet begun for the show, even though we don't know when 2024 the upcoming season would air.
It makes it reasonable that development would take a while given that the world of House of the Dragon will be expanding in the subsequent season.
Who Will Be in the Cast of House of the Dragon Season 2?
In its first season, House of the Dragon went through a lot of performers, with several characters either dying off or growing older throughout the span of 10 episodes.
Nonetheless, it is now anticipated that the following cast members will appear in season two of House of the Dragon. Over the next few months, expect more information.
- Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen
- Olivia Cooke as Dowager Queen Alicent Hightower
- Sonoya Mizuno as Mysaria
- Fabien Frankel as Ser Criston Cole
- Emma D'Arcy as Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen
- Rhys Ifans as Ser Otto Hightower
- Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon
- Eve Best as Princess Rhaenys Targaryen
- Jefferson Hall as Lord Jason Lannister and Ser Tyland Lannister
- Harry Collett as Prince Jacaerys Velaryon
What Will Happen in House of the Dragon Season 2?
The next chapter of House of the Dragon will pick up right where season 1 left off. It will be about the terrible Targaryen civil war, which fans call the “Dance of the Dragons.”
Westeros's people and nobles will choose between Queen Rhaenyra I Targaryen and her son, the young King Aegon II Targaryen, as the person, they want to sit on the Iron Throne.
After Prince Lucerys Velaryon's horrible death in the season 1 finale, Rhaenyra will definitely want revenge. If the series stays true to the book, you can expect a very harsh reaction to what happened.
As the human cost of the war is shown, expect more violent scenes as well as quieter, more emotional ones. This will be especially hard on Rhaenyra and Alicent Hightower, who used to be friends.
The second season will also dramatically shift the focus from the few main characters in the first season to the whole ensemble cast. However, the story of Rhaenyra and Alicent will remain the same.
Is There Any Trailer for House of the Dragon Season 2?
