This is when House of the Dragon will be back on our screens with season two

The premiere date for season two of House of the Dragon has been confirmed.

The HBO show’s first season, set 200 years before Game of Thrones, debuted on August 21st, 2022.

Almost two years later, we finally know when to expect new episodes.

According to a new report, the show’s second season will premiere on Sky Atlantic in the UK and Ireland on June 17th, 2024.

The series chronicles the beginning of the end of House Targaryen, and follows the events leading up to the Targaryen civil war, known as the Dance of the Dragons.

Matt Smith plays Prince Daemon Targaryen in the series, the younger brother of King Viserys (played by Paddy Considine).

Olivia Cooke stars as Alicent Hightower, while Emma D’Arcy plays Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen.

Line Of Duty actor Steve Toussaint plays Lord Corlys Velaryon, Eve Best stars as Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, and Notting Hill star Rhys Ifans plays hand of the King Otto Hightower.

Adapted from George R.R. Martin’s 2018 book Fire & Blood Vol. 1, the first season featured a 10-year time jump between episode 5 and 6.

However, the second season, which will be eight episodes long, won’t feature any jumps in time.

Showrunner Ryan Condal, who co-created the series with Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin, told Deadline: “I will say, as a reward to our wonderful audience for following us through all the time jumps and recasts, they are done.”

“We tell the story in real time from here forward. The actors are playing these characters until the end. We’re not recasting anybody.

“We’re not making any huge jumps forward in time. We are now in the Dance of the Dragons, and we’re gonna tell that story.”
