House of the Dragon season 2: what we know so far

The continuation of the beloved prequel spin-off of Game of Thrones will return in June 2024 with an even more dramatic second season, based on Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin. This new addition will follow on from the first season that concluded to excellent reviews from both critics and audiences.

Here are some previews of what we know so far (NO SPOILERS!):

The second season was already confirmed just 5 days after the debut of the pilot episode, but filming was progressing slowly in 2023 due to a Hollywood strike involving actors and screenwriters.

At this moment, the HBO series cast is engaged in a promotional tour ahead of the release of the new 8 episodes (2 fewer than the previous season).

With two official trailers, dedicated to the opposing but complementary perspectives of the two factions, namely the Greens and the Blacks, protagonists of the bloody civil war within House Targaryen fight for the succession to the throne. The release date of this highly anticipated second part has been announced: the episodes will be available starting from June 16 on HBO. This comes almost two years after the release of the first season, with the story picking up about 10 days after where we were left off with the end of season 1, where the so-called "Dance of the Dragons" will reach its climax, the conflict that pitted the two branches of the family against each other.

This second season will involve most of the surviving characters from the first. Among those we have known in the past, we have the protagonists seen in the trailer, such as Rhaenyra and Daemon Targaryen played by Emma D'Arcy and Matt Smith. Then there's Olivia Cooke and Rhys Ifans as Alicent Hightower and Otto Hightower, Fabien Frankel as Criston Cole, and all the other main characters.

Of course, we'll also see plenty of new faces for this second part. Some actors joining the cast include Clinton Liberty and Abubakar Salim, respectively as Addam and Alyn of Hull. Jamie Kenna as Ser Alfred Broome, Tom Taylor as Lord Cregan Stark, Freddie Fox as Ser Gwayne Hightower (Alicent's younger brother), Vincent Regan as Ser Rickard Thorne, Kieran Bew as Hugh, and Tom Bennett as Ulf.
