HBO Picked Up “House Of The Dragon” For A Second Season

August 26, 2022 / Posted by:

This past Sunday, the Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon, premiered on HBO. So many people tried to stream it at once that HBO Max actually crashed for some users. By the next morning, the premiere had scored 10 million viewers, making it the biggest series debut in HBO history. Five days later, another 10 million people jumped on the bandwagon. It’s a hit, a very palpable hit! And today, HBO announced that they’ve already renewed the show for a second season. Ugh, I hate to say it, but… I’m in. And if House of the Dragon shits the bed harder than Game of Thrones did in its final season, I only have myself to blame. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice? I’m a bigger moron than anyone who ever put their trust in (that sexy beast) Littlefinger.

via The Hollywood Reporter:

“We are beyond proud of what the entire House of the Dragon team has accomplished with season one,” says Francesca Orsi, executive vp, HBO programming. “Our phenomenal cast and crew undertook a massive challenge and exceeded all expectations, delivering a show that has already established itself as must-see-TV. A huge thank you [to co-creator and executive producer George R.R. Martin and co-creator and showrunners Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik] for leading us on this journey. We couldn’t be more excited to continue bringing to life the epic saga of House Targaryen with season two.”

As of now, we don’t know when the show’s second season will come out. The first season took 10 whole months to film and the postproduction visual effects work has been ongoing since January. The Hollywood Reporter guesses that Season 2 will likely drop in 2024. They also speculate that this renewal isn’t just a big deal for House of the Dragon; it’s also encouraging news for the other SEVEN Game of Thrones spinoffs currently in production. Dragon’s strong debut “could bode well for at least one other project getting an eventual series order.”

Here are all the GoT spinoffs currently in development, according to Entertainment Weekly:

The Sea Snake: it’s a prequel about Corlys Velaryon the greatest seafarer in the Seven Kingdoms. BUT WAIT. Corlys is also a main character in House of the Dragon. He’s married to the would-be queen (Eve Best, aka that hot bitch from Nurse Jackie) and played by Steve Toussaint.

Ten Thousand Ships: set 10,000 years before GoT, this show will follow Princess Nymeria, an ancestor of House Martell who founded Dorne.

Untitled Jon Snow Sequel Series: self-explanatory.

The Tale of Dunk and Egg: a series based on George R.R. Martin’s novellas about a knight, Dunk, and his squire, Egg, who’s destined to become King Aegon V Targearyn. OK, sure!

Rumor Flea Bottom series: this is a potential series that will explore the poors of King’s Landing. Gross.

The Golden Empire and a few other animated series: these are “shrouded in secrecy”.

Fuck Palace: this one’s set 5,000 years before GoT, and follows a never-ending royal orgy. Participants may come and go, but the orgy can never totally stop. Otherwise, all the dragons will die. Also, the Hound is there for some reason (time travel?), because I found him extremely sexy.

OK, I made that last one up, but think about it, HBO!
