On Fire: House of the Dragon Season 2 Is a Soaring, Burning Tale

Westeros is ablaze once more as House of the Dragon returns for a scorching second season. With the dragon-riding Targaryens fighting each other for control of the Iron Throne, the show is essential viewing – and is proving itself to be an essential prequel to the hugely popular Game of Thrones. So what does the new season bring?

**Where to Watch the Epic: "House of the Dragon" Season 2 Unveiled**

House of the Dragon will be streaming exclusively on HBO and its digital counterpart, Max, for $10/month with commercials or $17/month ad-free. This way, a new crop of fans and die-hards alike can catch the best of the Dragon drama.

  • ...
  • Episode 8 – August 4

**The Heart of the Dragon: A Synopsis**

Season 2 has seen the stage set even more emphatically, with the more-than-human forces known as ‘Blacks’ and ‘Greens’, competing for supremacy in the dance of power. Introduced in Fire & Blood (2018), the centuries-long first book in a planned series about the subsequent Targaryen dynasty – set 200 years before Game of Thrones – the show draws on the animosity between two ancient houses.

**Timeless Drama: Rewatching House of the Dragon and Game of Thrones in BLU**

For fans who want to take a historical tour of Westeros and beyond, you can stream both the ‘House of the Dragon’ Season 1 and the eight seasons of ‘Game of Thrones’ on Max.

Co-created by George R R Martin and Ryan Condal, Season 2 features:

  • Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower
  • And many more...

And each of the actors infuses the saga with more life, helping embed the lore itself in the story.

**Looking Beyond the Flames: The Future of "House of the Dragon"**

HBO confirmed early this year that a third season will follow only a week after the second wraps, and fans should expect the latest instalments to be as shocking, suspenseful and epic as the rest. The Targaryen saga attests to the series’ staying power, and the richness of the world Martin has created.

Meanwhile, for people interested in delving deeper into the narrative the ‘Game of Thrones’ universe is full of canonical and non-canonical source material – book guides, episode breakdowns – to make you feel like you know everything there is to know.

**A Deep Dive into the BLU: The Medium that Keeps Westeros Alive**

For fans who want to rewatch the saga for the umpteenth time in crystal-clear detail, Blu-ray is the release to go for. It includes House of the Dragon as well as Game of Thrones, and is the best way to watch the series if you’re ever planning on having a grandchild who might enjoy it some day too.

Over eight episodes, Season 2 of House of the Dragon isn’t so much a continuation as it is an amplification of the world viewers have spent the past eight years plunging into.
