The production for Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon is in full swing. We have already seen pictures of new sets being erected in Spain, with filming about to begin. Once the filming in Spain is complete, the production will move to North Wales, where new scenes will be shot for House of The Dragon season 2.

Why will House of the Dragon Season 2 have only 8 episodes?

According to a report by North Wales Live, the filming in North Wales is supposed to involve children, and they might be a part of some stunt work. Their source also revealed that Season 2 was reduced to 8 episodes instead of 10 due to a battle requiring young children to be carrying out dangerous stunts.
