Less than a week after its series debut, “House of the Dragon” received an early Season 2 renewal from HBO. Given HBO’s financial commitment to the program and the fact that the premiere broke HBO’s record for the largest premiere audience for a new program ever, the second season’s renewal is not entirely unexpected.
This past Sunday, about 10 million viewers watched across all platforms; according to HBO, that number has increased to 20 million after four days of playback. Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO Programming, said, “We are beyond proud of what the entire ‘House of the Dragon’ team has accomplished with season one. “Our incredible cast and crew took on a huge challenge and went above and above to produce a program that has already become must-see television.
We are incredibly grateful to George, Ryan, and Miguel for guiding us on our adventure. Season two of the great House Targaryen drama will have us even more enthused than the first. “House of the Dragon” covers the tale of House Targaryen and is set 200 years before the events of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” series. It is based on author George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood” book from the “A Song of Ice and Fire” universe. George R.R. Martin also wrote Winds of Winter which is based on a fantasy-series book.

The fact that HBO decided against airing just one episode demonstrates how much faith parent company Warner Bros. Discovery has in the series before any sustained significant viewer reaction, even though a second season renewal for “House of the Dragon” was all but guaranteed — Martin and company were already discussing Season 2 plans during their panel at San Diego Comic-Con in July.
The HBO team, headed by chief content officer Casey Bloys, has been searching for a worthy replacement for “Game of Thrones” for years. With 10 episodes that cost just under $20 million to make each, “House of the Dragon” is the result of their search. Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, Sonoya Mizuno, and Rhys Ifans are among the actors who appear in “House of the Dragon.”
Bethany Antonia, Phoebe Campbell, Emily Carey, Harry Collett, Ryan Corr, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jefferson Hall, David Horovitch, Wil Johnson, John Macmillan, Graham McTavish, Ewan Mitchell, Theo Nate, Matthew Needham, Bill Paterson, Phia Saban, Gavin Spokes, and Savannah Steyn are among the additional cast members.
Ryan Condal, who also serves as co-showrunner alongside “Game of Thrones” director Miguel Sapochnik, and Martin co-created the project. Ron Schmidt, Sara Hess, Jocelyn Diaz, Vince Gerardis, and others are executive producers as well. On Sundays at nine House of the Dragon premieres on HBO and starts streaming on HBO Max.
