House of the Dragon Season 2 – start date with duelling trailers

HBO have announced the premiere date for the long-awaited Season 2 of House of the Dragon. Stateside, the show lands on June 16th, translating to the early hours of June 17th in the UK.

Here’s the synopsis for House of the Dragon Season 2:

Set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series finds the Targaryens ruling over the Seven Kingdoms — and on the brink of a civil war within their own house.

Prior to the birth of a son, King Viserys sent shockwaves through the kingdom and declared his daughter, Rhaenyra, his heir. Once a healthy boy entered the picture, plans were afoot to make sure she would never sit on the Iron Throne.

Now, with schemes hatched on both sides — and the kingdom in the balance — viewers will see the house that dragons built and learn how they tore it all down.

House of the Dragon will recount the history of the Targaryen family: introducing them at the height of their greatness and power and then dramatising their fall.
