Kind of like with game of thronesthe end of Dragon House season 1 encountered a common refrain: When is season 2? Fortunately, HBO has been a bit more transparent with plans to Dragon House season 2 – from there there will definitely be one. It’s not quite a “You don’t know anything, Jon Snow” situation.
Here is the latest news, release information and plot details on Dragon House season 2. Expect updates, cast changes, and bragging rights about dragons. And maybe George RR Martin with some buzzwords (but if you’re looking The Winds of Winter updates, good luck).
When will House of the Dragon season 2 premiere on HBO?
Dragon House received a green light for the second season in August after its first episode. Twenty million premiere viewers across all platforms was enough to prove that game of thrones the fever hadn’t abated since the 2019 finale of the flagship series.
HBO is known for showing the first seasons of major series and then shelving for two full years – see Westworld — and the gap between Dragon House seasons 1 and 2 could be substantial. A recent report by Spanish newspaper Hoy suggested that production will return to the town of King’s Landing, Cáceres, next spring, with filming for the new season starting around April 2023. Based on what it takes to put on a season of dragon war together, we suppose Dragon House season 2 will likely arrive in 2024.
Who’s back in the House of the Dragon season 2 cast?
Although HBO has yet to confirm the cast for Season 2, George RR Martin’s sources suggest that future seasons won’t make the kind of time jumps that defined Season 1.

As for new characters, Martin has already confirmed one: Daeron Targaryen, Viserys and Alicent’s fourth child, who was apparently in Oldtown throughout Season 1 and “we just didn’t have time to work on it this season,” Martin said in a blog post from early October.
Who didn’t come back?
Aside from the cast members who aged or died during Season 1, the major absences coming into Dragon House season 2 is actually behind the camera: Miguel Sapochnik, the thrones senior director who agreed to co-direct Dragon House with writer Ryan Condal, announced in late August that he would not be returning for Season 2. Instead, another thrones veteran Alan Taylor has stepped in to take on the role of producer-director for Season 2.
What will happen in Season 2 of House of the Dragon?
Martin’s Readers Fire & Blood know where things are going, but let’s just say we’re expecting lots of green, lots of black, and lots of dragon warfare. As for Season 2 details, the latest episodes suggest the action will expand beyond the walls of King’s Landing into familiar territory around Westeros.

What about the other Game of Thrones spinoffs?
While we patiently wait Dragon House to return, we’re also patiently waiting for the handful of other Westeros adventures currently in development at HBO to come to fruition. What’s on file? There’s this Jon Snow series that Kit Harington is dying to do; ten thousand ships, a prequel set 1000 years before Thrones telling the story of Princess Nymeria, the founder of Dorne; a long-awaited adaptation of The Tales of Dunk and Egg; and a number of potential anime one-offs and/or spin-offs.
