“House of the Dragon” S2 Set For June SuperNayr


Warner Bros. Discovery streaming chief J.B. Perrette has confirmed that the second season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” spinoff “House of the Dragon” will premiere in June. Sadly no specific date is yet set beyond it very likely being on one of the Sundays of that month.

Participating in an interview (via Variety) at Morgan Stanley’s Technology, Media and Telecom conference on Monday, Perrette’s confirmation of the launch month is the closest we’ve had to a date yet – the next nearest being an “early Summer” launch by WBD CEO David Zaslav.

The series was one of the few shows that was able to continue in production throughout both strikes last year as the scripts were all done before the writer’s strike began, while its cast were part of Actors Equity and not SAG-AFTRA.

Shooting on the new season took place in England, Spain, & Wales and clocks in at a shorter eight-episode run with no time jumps this time. A third season has already been mapped.

It joins what is set to be a busy month for TV with the fourth season of “The Boys,” the third season of “The Bear” and the new “Star Wars” series “The Acolyte” all targeting June launches.

Based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” ‘Dragon’ chronicles the rise and the downfall of the Targaryens – the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria. Events unfold three centuries prior to “Game of Thrones”.

The series stars Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Sonoya Mizuno, Graham McTavish, Jefferson Hall, David Horovitch, Matthew Needham, Bill Patterson, Gavin Spokes, Wil Johnson, John Macmillan, Savannah Steyn, and Theo Nate. Gayle Rankin, Russell Beale, Freddie Fox, and Abubakar Salim join the cast for the second season.
