For all of you Game of Thronesfans out there, y’all have probably been waiting on the edge of your seats for the announcement of the House of the Dragonseason two premiere.
Well, today is your lucky day, because season two is slated to premiere in “early summer” 2024 on HBO, according to Variety.
Network chief Casey Bloys made the announcement during a press event in New York today, while also adding that filming for another GOT spinoff, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight, will begin filming next spring as long as the writers strike is over with.
For those who aren’t familiar with House of the Dragon, it’s the prequel series to Game of Thrones, following the Targaryen dynasty in the fictional continent of Westeros, 200 years before the events in GOT.
Unlike most TV shows, House of the Dragon was able to film this year, beginning April 11th, since the scripts were finished before the SAG-AFTRA writers strike began. On top of that, the actors on the show are under contract with guild Equity, and not SAG-AFTRA.
The second season of the show will star Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Eve Best, Steve Toussaint, Fabien Frankel, Ewan Mitchell, Tom Glynn-Carney, Sonoya Mizuno and Rhys Ifans. Additional returning Season 1 cast members include Harry Collett, Bethany Antonia, Phoebe Campbell, Phia Saban, Jefferson Hall and Matthew Needham.
Get ready, because if season two is anything like season one, we have something big in store for us.
