House Of The Dragon Season 2 Trailer Teases Big Battles And Even Bigger Treachery – SlashFilm


Maybe tearing the Targaryen dynasty apart and plunging the realm into chaos and violence wasn’t the best course of action, eh? Season 1 of “House of the Dragon” set up a rather convincing case for the Iron Throne for both sides of the family — or, rather, it laid the groundwork for the slow-motion car crash that was always inevitable as a result of some seriously iffy rules of succession. It’s no wonder that this simmering conflict would ultimately come to a head between Queen Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) and the Queen Regent Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke), devolving into full-blown war featuring sprawling battles, betrayals and treachery, and absolutely no shortage of dragonfire.

“House of the Dragon” season 2 comes from co-creator/executive producer George R.R. Martin (who is allegedly hard at work writing the perpetually-delayed “The Winds of Winter”) and co-creator/showrunner/executive producer Ryan Condal. Based on Martin’s “Fire & Blood” novels, the series cast includes returning faces Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Eve Best, Steve Toussaint, Fabien Frankel, Ewan Mitchell, Tom Glynn-Carney, Sonoya Mizuno, and Rhys Ifans. This time around, they’ll be joined by new additions Abubakar Salim, Gayle Rankin, Freddie Fox, Simon Russell Beale, Clinton Liberty, Jamie Kenna, Kieran Bew, Tom Bennett, Tom Taylor, and Vincent Regan. You’d better start brushing up on your knowledge of Westeros’ Great Houses now, folks.

The season 2 premiere of “House of the Dragon” airs on HBO and streams on Max on Sunday, June 16 at 9:00 p.m. ET.
