What To Expect In House Of The Dragon Season 2?

In an interview with Deadline, Executive Vice President of Drama Series at HBO Francesca Orsi previously assured fans that the second installment will be more exciting, and she promised that they would introduce something that fans have never seen in the first one. She stated:

We have a beautiful cast that was assembled by Kate Rhodes [James], and we just are proud of seeing how those scripts are coming alive. The emotionality that the cast is bringing to it is something that we feel confident with and know that we’re going to deliver something special.”

Showrunner Ryan Condal also teased fans in his interview with The Hollywood Reporter what they could expect to see in the upcoming season:

We are thrilled to be shooting again with members of our original family as well as new talents on both sides of the camera. All your favorite characters will soon be conspiring at the council tables, marching with their armies, and riding their dragons into battle. We can’t wait to share what we have in store.”

Meanwhile, Emma D’Arcy reflected on their character’s journey in Season 1. The series finale left an impression that Rhaenyra Targaryen will be preparing for something as big as revenge. This time, according to the star, she will no longer hold back (via Entertainment Weekly):

The moment that she receives the news of Luke’s passing, that attempt at mediation crumbles. I don’t think there is any longer the bandwidth to suppress and repress her nature… I am excited to discover what happens when Rhaenyra does less navigating and more acting on her instincts and desires. For so many very legitimate reasons, she has her hands tied practically throughout Season One. I have a feeling that the rain might be off for Season Two.”

Stealing Rhaenyra’s crown and murdering her favorite son are probably the most legitimate reasons to wage a war, which is something that fans are already expecting in Season 2.
