The first season of HBO’s House of the Dragon has conlcluded on an epic cliffhanger and everyone is wondering when season two will air. We will be breaking down all of the information out and when we are going to see season two air.
More House of the Dragon to Come
With season one ending as the start of the war between the Greens and the Blacks, everyone is eager to see what happens next. An epic dragon versus dragon fight scene finally took place and more will follow. But how long will the wait be?
Just after the first episode of the show premiered, HBO announced that it would be renewing the series for a second season. That is a bold move considering they didn’t even wait to see how the season would play out. They knew that the show would be a hit and they guessed correctly.
The good news is that the show is going to multiple seasons even if HBO has not come out and said it. George R.R. Martin, author of the book Fire and Blood that the show is adapted from, has said that it will take about four seasons to properly tell the tale of Dance of the Dragons.
And if that wasn’t enough, Matt Smith, the actor who plays Daemon Targaryen, let it slip that the show is planning for the long haul. On a podcast, Smith said “Once we make the jump, we’re in. I’m pretty sure from then on there’s not any big huge time jumps, particularly next season and the one after.”
When is Season Two Coming Out?
Season two will be coming out in about two years. Production for season two has already started and filing is expected to start in spring or summer 2023. Filimg for season one started in April 2021 and the show aired 15 months later. That would put the timetable for the show for Fall 2024.
There you have it. While an official release date has not been said, fall 2024 is the most likely release it. Coincidently, it will most likely release as the same time as The Rings of Power season two. The rivalry between the shows is going to be around for the next decade. House of the Dragon has proved to be the better show and it will only get better as we dive into the action packed part of the show going forward.
