Get ready for a return to Westeros! House of the Dragon season 2 is set to debut on HBO in the Summer of 2024.
This news comes from a recent press event with HBO network chief Casey Bloys. During the presentation, Bloys revealed that House of the Dragon is expected to drop in “early summer” of 2024. Attendees of the event were also shown the first trailer for season 2, suggesting that it may drop to the public sometime relatively soon.
The summer of 2024 is a lucrative release window for House of the Dragon season 2. Due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strikes, many big projects are either at risk of being delayed or have been delayed already, paving the way for a successful sophomore season for the HBO series. Though given its fellow Game of Thrones spin-off A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight may also be delayed due to the strikes, it’s far from a perfect situation for the franchise.
