‘House of the Dragon’ renewed for second season on HBO

Well, I guess the story of House of the Dragon is not going to resolve itself nicely after this first series of episodes…

Days after the first season of Game of Thrones premiere for what HBO described as its biggest series premiere in the channel’s history, with 9.986 million viewers on both cable and HBO Max streaming, it has officially renewed the show for a second season. In a press release announcing season 2, the company notes that a few days later “the first episode has now been seen by over 20 million viewers across linear, On Demand and HBO Max platforms in the US”

Here was HBO’s official statement on the news:

We are beyond proud of what the entire HOUSE OF THE DRAGON team has accomplished with Season 1. Our phenomenal cast and crew took on a massive challenge and exceeded all expectations, delivering a show that has already established itself as must-see TV . A big thank you to George, Ryan and Miguel for leading us on this journey. We couldn’t be more excited to continue bringing the epic saga of House Targaryen to life with season two.

Based on the books by George RR Martin, the series is the first television spinoff from HBO’s hugely popular series Game of Thrones TV series; it is set about 200 years before the events depicted earlier Game of Thrones show. Season 1 of the show stars Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, Sonoya Mizuno and Rhys Ifans – although there’s no guarantee that all or any of them characters will survive through season 2.

New episodes of House of the Dragon airs weekly on Sundays on HBO and HBO Max.
