The “Dance of the Dragons” continues… 

It seems like forever since we were last in Westeros for the brutal events of the House of the Dragon. Actually, it was only in the summer of 2022.

The series is based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood and set 200 years before Game of Thrones. It chronicles an internecine conflict inside the ruling House Targaryen.

Now, HBO (and Sky in the UK) have revealed a first look at the upcoming 8-part House of the Dragon Season 2.

As the battle lines were left, Queen Alicent (Olivia Cooke) has installed her eldest son Aegon on the throne, while Princess Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) and her husband Prince Daemon (Matt Smith) insist on pressing her claim…
