Set in the distant past, Dune: Prophecy will reveal the origins of the Sisterhood. 

Updated 19/07/24: A second trailer and Sky confirm they’re taking the show in the UK.

A second teaser for Dune: Prophecy is now available.

The 60 second promo, titled ‘Control’, amps up the tension as Emily Watson’s Valya Harkonnen talks about trying to protect the Imperium and we see reactions to the sisterhood’s increasing status. She also states ominously that “sacrifices must be made!”

We also get a look at Mark Strong’s Emperor Javicco Corrino and hear a Bene Gesserit sister deploy ‘the voice’.

Dune: Prophecy air date?

This latest teaser, released by HBO Max in the US has also been shared with Sky branding for the UK.

The show is undated on Sky’s version, save for that it’s arriving in 2024. However, its HBO Max counterpart tells us to expect the show in November.

We’ll keep you’ll posted on Dune: Prophecy.
