House of the Dragon season 2 is already preparing to take flight.

House of the Dragon is the prequel set 200 years before the events in the Game of Thrones. The series explains what happened to the Targaryens when brother and sister Aegon II and Rhaenyra battle to the death to claim the Iron Throne. After the release of only two episodes, House of the Dragon was already renewed for a second season.

Now that the second season is confirmed, here is everything we know so far about House of the Dragon season 2.

There is still no information on when the second season of House of the Dragon will come out. The first season of the Game of Thrones prequel was released on August 21, 2022, so if season 2 follows the same schedule, we can expect to watch the series around August 2024, barring any delays.

When was House of the Dragon renewed for season 2?

House of the Dragon was renewed for a second season on August 26, Friday, five short days after the series premiered. Francesca Orsi, the Executive Vice President of HBO programming, confirmed the renewal through The Hollywood Reporter.

We are beyond proud of what the entire House of the Dragon team has accomplished with season one. Our phenomenal cast and crew undertook a massive challenge and exceeded all expectations, delivering a show that has already established itself as must-see-TV. A huge thank you [to co-creator and executive producer George R.R. Martin and co-creator and showrunners Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik] for leading us on this journey. We couldn't be more excited to continue bringing to life the epic saga of House Targaryen with season two

When will House of the Dragon complete filming for season 2?

There are still no reports that the cast and crew of House of the Dragon have started filming for season 2 since the first season is still in the middle of releasing new episodes weekly.

The first season of House of the Dragon spent 10 months to complete production, so we can expect season two production to last just as long, or even longer, depending on the plot and how heavy post-production editing will be.

Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower

As of writing, the first season of House of the Dragon is still ongoing (and no one has died yet, so far), so it is safe to say that most of the main characters will be returning for season 2.

Olivia Cooke may still play Alicent Hightower, Emma D'Acry may still be Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, and Matt Smith will still be Prince Daemon Targaryen. We may also still see Eve Best as Rhaenys Targaryen, Fabien Frankel as Ser Criston Col, and Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen if he heals from his wounds.

Henry Cavill and Elizabeth Olsen are rumored to join the cast

The most recent casting rumors for House of the Dragon season 2 involved two of the most famous actors in the industry today.

Fans speculate that Henry Cavill, who plays the Geralt in The Witcher, and Elizabeth Olsen, who played the Scarlet Witch of MCU fame, will join the cast as Aegon I and Melisandre, respectively.

Are these rumors true? We have to wait and see.

Clare Kilner, Miguel Sapochnik, and Greg Yaitanes may return to helm the episodes of season 2. Sapochnik may still work with Ryan Condall and George R.R. Martin (the author of the book series that inspired the entire Game of Thrones franchise) to write the show. Martin may remain an executive producer along with Vince Gerardis, Sara Lee Hess, and Ron Schmidt.

Hopefully, we will still hear Ramin Djawadi's musical scores by season 2.

Because House of the Dragon season 2 was only announced previously, we still do not know what the second season's plot will be.

What we know is that the first season of the series will cover a portion of George R. R. Martin's novel, Fire & Blood, on which it is loosely based. House of the Dragon season 1 is set to portray the events that eventually lead to the civil war within the Targaryen family called the Dance of the Dragon, where two Targaryens stake their claim on the throne and battle it out after King Viserys dies.

In a report by Variety, it seems the Dance of the Dragons will not be happening until season 2. When House of the Dragon co-creators George R. R. Martin and Ryan Condal appeared on the House of the Dragon panel during the 2022 Comic-Con, they shared that production for dragons that will appear in the second season is already in progress.

Hungry for more dragons? House of the Dragon season 2 will give us more.

House of the Dragon Season 2 Trailer: Is There a Trailer for House of the Dragon Season 2?

House of the Dragon season 2 does not have a trailer yet because the series may still be in the early production stages. If the series's second season follows the same release trends as the first, we may see the full official trailer for the series around July 2024.

In the meantime, here is the trailer for the first season of House of the Dragon.
