According to Condal, the plot of the first season moved at a glacial pace on purpose so that viewers would have time to get to know and care about the characters. Actually, I think the show rushed through events by skipping ahead in time too often, but I’m getting off topic. We shall go to the spectacle,” Condal promises. But before you toss them into battle, you must comprehend the complexity of these people.
“Series two will approach the rhythms people come to expect from the middle run of Game of Thrones,” says Condal, referencing the middle several seasons of that show, which many would argue were the best. Despite the show’s heavy subject matter, Condal promises that they will find “natural paths into moments of laughter” even without Tyrion. But he does say that Matt Smith is entertaining and that Daemon has potential as a comedy vehicle. Consider the case of a man severing the head off of another man. He can hold his tongue is a fairly solid comedic one-liner.
The question that remains unanswered is whether House of the Dragon will conclude the source material in its final season or if there are intentions to continue the series on a greater scale. The concept of expanding this into a Targaryen anthology series, covering other time periods both in the history and future of the house, beyond Fire and Blood and the Dance of Dragons, was once discussed. Since we’ve seen nothing, expect more wars and fatalities. Season two is delayed until spring 2023.
However, that would necessitate a complete reimagining and, in many respects, a new beginning. To finish the present plot arc with the current cast would require at least three more seasons, but that is just a guess. Of course, a half-dozen more prequels and spin-offs of Game of Thrones are also in production today, and more of them will arrive in the coming years.
There has been no announcement regarding Season 2. Production is scheduled to begin in late 2022, and given that it is now…pretty nearly late 2022, we should expect filming to begin shortly. Barring another pandemic, production should resume at a normal pace, with the best estimate placing the wait for a new season at around a year and a half, as is typically the case with this sort of event, with more on exact dates to come. Dates. We can calculate since filming starts later this year. 2021 saw Season 1.
If filming starts in December 2022 and ends in December 2023, 15 months later is March 2024, meaning no House of the Dragon in 2023 and more toward spring or summer 2024, depending on production duration. Filming may start next year. Yesterday’s season break announcement (spoilers follow). Killing Rhaenyra’s son and dragon makes Aemond the Black Queen. War begins. Hightowers own the biggest dragon. Daemon’s dragon control.
