Will House of the Dragon be renewed for Season 2?
House of the Dragon hasn’t even premiered on HBO yet, but we’re already looking ahead at the future. Will Season 2 happen?
Before any show premieres, we like to know what the plans are for the future. Is a show going to end on a major cliffhanger to which we never get answers? Is the series billed as a limited series? Its just good to know so we’re ready as we start watching.
House of the Dragon is a prequel series to Game of Thrones. With how big the OG series was, it seems crazy to even question if there’s going to be a second season of the spin-off. However, will there be a story? Is this something that was billed as a limited series?
Will House of the Dragon Season 2 happen at HBO?
There is a little bit of good news. House of the Dragon Season 2 writing is close to happening. In fact, the writing work has already started even though there isn’t an official renewal.
HBO hasn’t yet confirmed the renewal. Just recently, Casey Bloys, the chief of HBO programming, made it clear that while the series has a good chance of renewal, nothing has been decided yet. That doesn’t stop the writing work from happening, and it’s likely that HBO is heavily considering it. Think of it like the risk the Upload writers took.
It’s looking like this could be an anthology series. There is a wealth of content around the Targaryen dynasty, especially since the release of Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin*. This certainly opens the world of intriguing storylines moving back and forward in time with each season.
