“House of the Dragon” concluded its pilot season over the weekend. With the dramatic ending of the first installment, avid fans and followers are seemingly looking forward to the next set of episodes.
Entertainment Tonight noted in a recent report that HBO renewed the “Game of Thrones” prequel for a second season early on in the pilot’s course. While details remain scarce, the publication rounded up some of the latest information about new and upcoming installment.
As noted, “House of the Dragon” Season 1 established the key players in the battle of succession following the death of King Viserys II. It then concluded its course with seemingly everyone in Westeros taking sides between the Black and Green councils, setting up the beginning of the war.
Season 2 will reportedly bring the series close to the war between the Blacks and Greens. Citing the “Game of Thrones” fansite Winter Is Coming, the publication shared that the new and upcoming installment will feature several big events in its course.
ET quoted the statement from the said platform, writing, “Without getting into too much detail, there will be a conspiracy within the Red Keep, Rhaenys Targaryen will mount Meleys again, and there will be a search for more dragonriders.”
Speaking to Variety, “House of the Dragon” co-creator and executive producer Ryan Condal also shared insights into the second season of the HBO series. When asked whether the series will expand its scope beyond King’s Landing for Season 2, he stated that “the show definitely has to…,” adding that it is similar to “Game of Thrones,” which “grew in scope and expanse as it went.”
The series head continued to the outlet that King’s Landing, Dragonstone, and Driftmark will likely “continue to be the home bases for the show.” He noted, however, that “a war is coming” and this “requires allegiances from different kingdoms and armies all over the map of Westeros.”
In the end, Condal assured avid fans and viewers that there is “plenty of scope to come.”
Elsewhere in the exchange, published hours after the premiere of the first season finale on Sunday, the co-creator revealed that “House of the Dragon” Season 2 “will begin shooting in early 2023.”
As for the premiere, though, Ryan Condal told Variety that it is “to be determined” whether the material will drop on HBO next year.
