'House of the Dragon' season two

Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon returns to HBO this week, but how many episodes will there be?

Last month, a trailer for the second season of the show was released, which built upon the tension that highlighted season one’s end, as Aegon II (Tom Glynn-Carney) and Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy) butt heads to claim the Iron Throne, kickstarting a Targaryen civil war, otherwise known as the Dance of the Dragons.

The trailer sees The Blacks, led by Rhaenyra and Daemon (Matt Smith), plan an invasion of King’s Landing to claim the Iron Throne from the Greens, led by Aegon. Over the course of the intense trailer, we get several glimpses of the bloody and fiery war to come, along with a trip to The Wall.

Watch that trailer below:

The second season was renewed five days after the premiere of season one, in August 2022. The series is based on George R. R. Martin’s 2018 book Fire & Blood and it is set almost 200 years before the events of Game Of Thrones.

The season two reviews have been strong so far, currently sitting on a 91 per cent rating on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.

In a four-star review of the first season, NME wrote: “What is reassuring is that House Of The Dragon feels as though it is walking on solid ground: the bubbling rivalries, the jostling for power, the eruptions of violence; six episodes in, it is all coming together to create a rich stew … it is a relief to see a prequel that seems to know what it’s doing. A decent watch for fans and neutrals alike.”
