After the first season of House of The Dragon, viewers were left wanting more, and the show was already renewed for a second season before the season finale aired. The second season may not arrive right away because it takes a lot of work, planning, perseverance, collaboration amongst multiple departments, and a significant budget. However, here’s what you can expect from Season 2.

House of the Dragon Season 2 will be a Shakespearean tragedy

Ryan Condal, the Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon’s showrunner, recently told Deadline, “I’m excited to pick up where we left off. We did the hard, complex work of setting up this entirely new dynasty and family and all the players in Season 1 and took the time to do all the character work so you understood where everybody fell along the line of are they on Alicent’s side of the equation, Aegon’s side or are they on Rhaenyra’s side and Daemon’s side.”

“The excitement now is that we get to fall into the more traditional rhythms of storytelling and see where that story is going to go. We’ve always talked about this particular tale, and George has talked about it too, about this being a Shakespearean or Greek tragedy.”

How House of the Dragon is different from Game of Thrones?

Condal explained in the same interview, “Whereas the original series is like this big epic sweeping fantasy, about light and darkness, ice and fire, this series is very much about a house tearing itself apart from within. Now that all those pieces have been set on the board, I’m really excited to tell the next chapter, to see what happens now that Viserys is gone and is no longer keeping a lid on things.”
