There is little doubt that House of the Dragon Season 2 is one of the most highly anticipated shows right now. But what can we expect in the second season of the hit HBO series? As it turns out, we might not be seeing any flashbacks. Milly Alcock has just confirmed she will not be returning as young Rhaenyra Targaryen.
In the first season of House of the Dragon, Milly Alcock played Rhaenyra Targaryen in the first five episodes. By the sixth episode, she was replaced by Emma D'Arcy who took over as the adult version of the character. Still, fans have been hoping that Alcock will reprise her role in a flashback sequence in Season 2.
So is there any chance we'll get to see young Rhaenyra in House of the Dragon Season 2? Milly Alcock was quick to point out that her time with the Game of Thrones prequel is officially over.
“No. It’s done,” she told Deadline.
It's unfortunate that Milly Alcock will not be back in the second season of House of the Dragon. Still, that doesn't mean she isn't busy. Alcock recently appeared in the music video for the song “Easy Now” by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. She is also set to make her West End stage debut in The Crucible at the Gielgud Theatre this summer.
But what can we expect in House of the Dragon Season 2? It has already been confirmed that one of the more brutal events from Fire and Blood will be adapted into the series. Although fans are dreading the idea of seeing Blood and Cheese in action, it's also set to be one of the most important parts of the story so it's something to look forward to in the show.
For now, House of the Dragon Season 2 has not yet been given an official release date but it is unlikely to air late in the year. Instead, fans will have to wait until 2024 to see the Targaryen civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons.
