“That is a lot to ask of a new audience”: House of the Dragon showrunner addresses Season 1’s time jumps




Due to the several time jumps we have observed since the start of the series, House of the Dragon is rapidly approaching a full-fledged civil war involving the now-adult characters. This is significant since the tale that the television show is based on is really a few decades into the battle between the Greens and the Blacks, and the time jumps facilitate this. However, we won’t have them in Season 2.

Ryan Condal confirms House of the Dragon Season 2 has no time jumps

The time jumps that were spread out quite evenly throughout Season 1 annoyed a lot of fans. This is because they got to spend less time with their favorite actors. Condal addressed the issue in the latest episode of the Official House of the Dragon podcast, where he confirms with the host about the time skips being absent in Season 2, and says:

“It’s funny. The time jumps, as they’ve come to be called, were necessary in the first season, because we had to kind of cover 20 years of history. Really, 30 years of history are condensed into 20 years, for the sake of everyone’s sanity. And so that we weren’t recasting everybody, sometimes multiple times. Because I just think it would’ve been really hard to follow. And I have to credit the audience. That is a lot to ask of a new audience on a new show.”

House of the Dragon Season 2 is set 10 days after Season 1 finale

There are fresh narrative elements emerging as fans anxiously await the release of House of the Dragon Season 2, which is set for June. In response to questions at the CCXP Mexico, Corlys Velaryon’s actor, Steve Toussaint, stated:

🔥🐉 Embark on a journey through Westeros with our Game of Thrones themed games – 🔡Hodordle | 🐲 Flappy Dragon or you can use our Valyrian Dictionary and Dothraki Dictionary to learn new words. You can also interact with fans of the show on our Discord group🔥🐉

“Season 2 begins about 10 days after Season 1. And so, for Corlys, he’s still coming to terms with the grief of losing his son, his brother, his daughter and his heir, his grandson. So he’s trying to deal with that, plus hold on to one thing that’s the most dear, his relationship with his wife.”
