    The second season of House of the Dragon is poised to keep us on the edge of our seats, but there’s at least one thing we know for certain. No matter what horrors this new season may bring for House Targaryen, this epic fantasy drama will be back for Season 3.

    Season 1 of House of the Dragon wrapped up with the death of King Viserys, which set the stage for one of the darkest periods in the history of the Seven Kingdoms. As the series progresses, we’ll see two rivaling clans of House Targaryen fighting for their rightful place on the Iron Throne, kicking off a harrowing war of succession known as the Dance of the Dragons.

    Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke are returning to lead the House of the Dragon cast in Season 2, and they’ll have great support in Matt Smith, Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, Matthew Needham, Sonoya Mizuno, Tom Glynn-Carney, and Ewan Mitchell.

    George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal serve as co-creators of this series, and HBO’s head of drama Francesca Orsi said they can’t wait to watch their team burn bright in Season 3.

    House of the Dragon returned to HBO on June 16 for Season 2, which will feature a total of eight episodes.
