The head of HBO Max, Casey Bloys, told the fans of the series "House of the Dragon" that the new season will not be coming soon. He revealed that viewers will have to wait at least a year and a half to see the next episodes of the popular "Game of Thrones" spin-off.
“Don’t expect it in ’23, but I think sometime in ’24,” Bloys said. “We’re just starting to put the plan together, and just like last time, there are so many unknowns. It’s not to be coy or secretive, but you don’t want to say it’s going to be ready on this date, and then you have to move it”.
Bloys refused to specify in more detail the time frame for the release of the second season of the series.
George R.R. Martin wished to begin House of the Dragon even earlier
"I would've begun it like 40 years earlier, with an episode I would've called 'The Heir and the Spare,'" Martin revealed.
"Jaehaerys' two sons, Aemon and Baelon, are alive, and we see the friendship but also the rivalry between the two sides of the great house. Then Aemon dies accidentally when a Myrish crossbowman shoots him by accident on Tarth, then Jaehaerys has to decide who becomes the new heir.
Is it the daughter of the son who's just died, or the second son who has children of his own and is a man where she's a teenager? You could've presented all that stuff, but then you would've had 40 more years, and even more." "House of the Dragon" is based on the template of Fire and Blood by George R.R.
Martin, whose plot is set 200 years before the events of "Game of Thrones". The drama series starring Matt Smith, Emma D'Arcy and Paddy Considine depicts the beginning of the end of House Targaryen and the events leading up to the Targaryen Civil War.
