“House of the Dragon ss 2”: release date, announcement
The series “Game of Thrones” conquered the whole world. The project turned out to be so popular that directors and producers immediately started talking about filming side pictures. They talked about the prequel “House of the Dragon”, the first season of which began filming in April 2021, despite the fact that it was talked about back in October 2019.
Waiting for the premiere of the TV show “House of the Dragon” was exciting and tedious for both viewers and creators. With the season 2, no one will delay. It is known that the filming of the season 2 started in April 2023. Most likely, the new episodes will be released in the spring of 2024. We continue to follow the news.
House of the Dragon is based on mythology created by writer George R. R. Martin. When Old King Jaehaerys left this world, he left no heir behind him. His sons died long before his own death, so the honor of choosing a new ruler was presented to the Grand Council.
The youngest member of the family was an unusually gifted young man, whom everyone treated with respect. He was Viserys – eventually the fifth king of the Targaryen dynasty, who began to rule the Seven Kingdoms, Westerosi, and was also the last rider of the dragon Balerion. He was kind to everyone, both common people and powerful lords. He easily settled any conflicts and tried not to tolerate them in his presence.
Fate was favorable to Viserys, but at first it did not give him the opportunity to obtain an heir. Therefore, when the time came to replace Viserys, the father gave the reins to his daughter Rhaenyra. Only after a while did he manage to get a son, but from his second wife. Aegon became the rightful heir and wanted to take the throne. And then an important event came, which went down in history.
Viserys soon passed away, and his children were unable to share the throne. A fierce struggle ensued between Rhaenyra and Aegon. At all times, Targaryen were famous for their bloodlust and insane disposition. Having started the war with the last dragons, the descendants of the Viserys did not think about the common people. After all, many have become unwitting victims of their rash acts.
The desire to seize power turned out to be so great that even the most base methods were used. But there were also those who did not take part in the bloody struggle for power. It was they who told the living about “The Dance of Dragons” – this was the name of the battle between Rhaenyra and Aegon, in which people and the last surviving dragons fought to death…
Thanks to the TV series “House of the Dragon”, viewers will once again return to the world where White Walkers exist and learn their secrets. We’ll think about Daenerys Targaryen again and see the similarities in her behavior to those of her descendants. But what will happen next when the war is over and the winner we know prevails?..
- Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen – Viserys’ first child and Aemma Arryn’s only daughter; elected by her father to take the throne and rule Westerosi; bears a resemblance to her future relative Daenerys.
- Alicent Hightower – second wife of Viserys; interested in the stepdaughter not getting the throne; defends the interests of her own children, including her son, who also strives for power.
- Damon Targaryen – a supporter of Rhaenyra; her paternal uncle.
- Otto Hightower – Alicent’s dad; manically loves to rule; He has been in the position of Hand of the King for many years, helping to rule the domain.
- Corlys Velaryon – Lord of House Velaryon; often goes on sea voyages, for which he was nicknamed Sea Snake.
- It has long been known that the TV series “House of the Dragon” is based on the book “Fire and Blood” by the famous writer George R. R. Martin, the first volume of which was released back in 2018 and became a bestseller in the first month. The novel belongs to the cycle “A Song of Ice and Fire”, which began in 1991. Since then, Martin has been expanding this universe and successfully selling the rights to film adaptation, being considered the best author of our time.
- The decision to create a prequel was made by Miguel Sapochnik, who had already worked on “Game of Thrones”, while staging the most interesting episodes (“Battle of the Bastards”, “The Bells”). With an endless supply of knowledge about the fantasy world, he delved into every part of the project and made his own changes. It is known that George R. R. Martin is not involved in the creation of the film adaptation.
- Corlys Velaryon, known as Sea Snake, is likely to receive a solo TV show featuring his travels in the depths of the waters. They started talking about it in April 2021, when the shooting of “House of the Dragon” started.
- Composer Ramin Djawadi, who released an album titled “Game of Thrones”, is also making music for “House of the Dragon”. But we will still hear the old compositions.
