Following the disappointment of Game of Thrones‘ final season, fans expressed concerns about the Game Of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon, would fail to meet their expectations. However, the show takes place more than 150 years prior to House Targaryen‘s Daenerys Targaryen‘s birth and explores the events leading up to the Dance of the Dragons, a well-known civil war in George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood.

Despite fans’ initial skepticism about HBO‘s ability to deliver, the premiere of House of the Dragon exceeded expectations, garnering over 10 million viewers and rave reviews that praised the show for being better than Game of Thrones’ last few seasons.

Although many still believe that Game of Thrones Season 8 requires a redo, House of the Dragon has partially redeemed HBO‘s reputation with its thrilling action and intricate plot. With Season 2 in the works, fans should catch up on Season 1 House Of Dragon, and keep an eye out for updates about the upcoming season.

What to know about House of the Dragon Season 2?

The House of the Dragon release date for Season 2 has not been disclosed by HBO yet, but the show is expected to debut in 2024.
