The sneak peek of the upcoming season of House of the Dragon has hit the internet like a dragon riding a roller coaster! HBO decided to grace us with the first look at Season Two during the 2023 CCXP in São Paulo, Brazil, because nothing says epic fantasy like a convention in Brazil.
Hold on to your iron thrones, because this prequel series, based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” is taking us 200 years back in the Game of Thrones universe. Forget Westeros; we’re talking about the OG House Targaryen!
Returning to the chaos are fan-favorites like Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Eve Best, Steve Toussaint, Fabien Frankel, Ewan Mitchell, Tom Glynn-Carney, Sonoya Mizuno, and Rhys Ifans. It’s like a family reunion, but with more dragons and fewer awkward conversations about who gets the last slice of pizza.
Joining the cast for the new season are a bunch of names that sound like they could be characters in a Shakespearean play: Clinton Liberty, Jamie Kenna, Kieran Bew, Tom Bennett, Tom Taylor, Vincent Regan, Abubakar Salim, Gayle Rankin, Freddie Fox, and Simon Russell Beale. It’s like they raided a thesaurus for cool-sounding names.
Get ready for an eight-episode extravaganza that’s hotter than dragon breath because House of the Dragon Season Two is dropping in the summer of 2024. HBO and MAX are teaming up to bring you the hottest medieval drama since someone tried to pass off a turkey leg as a sword at a Renaissance fair. So, mark your calendars, and get ready for a summer of fire, blood, and more family drama than your last Thanksgiving dinner!
