We don’t have good news! It seems that The House of the Dragon is not going to satisfy all HBO fans and the series causes a bit of a stir.
The House of the Dragon has announced very bad news. The episode count for the second season of the HBO series has been revealed and some fans are going to be disappointed with the second installment of the Game of Thrones prequel. A prequel that narrates the bloody Targaryen Civil War.
According to a report from Deadline, which notes that it will likely be released in the summer of 2024, The second season of The House of the Dragon will consist of eight episodes. That means that it is two episodes less than the first season, which consisted of ten episodes. As we have said, bad news.
Why are we going to have fewer episodes in season 2?
Originally, it was going to be a 10 episode arc. Although due to some rewrites of the script it was reduced to only eight. Although Warner Bros. has become famous lately for its cost-cutting measures, it is said to be a purely creative decision due to the structure of the House of Dragon story. Not much is known about the upcoming season, although it has been said that there will be more dragons.
Based on Fire and Blood, the novel by George RR Martin, The House of the Dragon chronicles the rise and fall of the Targaryens, the only family of dragon lords to survive the Curse of Valyria. It takes place 200 years before the events of the award-winning series adaptation of Game of Thrones, which aired its last episode in 2019. In the second season, after having planted the seed of the well-known “Dance with Dragons”, it will begin to wage the Targaryen Civil War. A warlike and political conflict that marked the beginning of the end of the Valyrian dynasty.
