House of the Dragon reached the end of his first season this Sunday, showing that it is up to the best times of game of Thrones; however, fans of the series will have to wait a long time to see the second delivery.
After the great success of its first episode, HBO announced with great fanfare that the series based on the book Fire&Bloodby writer George RR Martin, would have a second season.
However, he did not give specific dates for the continuation of the story of Rhaenyra Targaryens, Alicent Hightower and the children of both, who will kill each other in the violent Dance of Dragons.

When is ‘House of the Dragon’ coming back?
The bad news is that production on the second season is expected to wrap up until summer 2023so it is very unlikely that we will see it next year on screens.
And it is that HBO would have to release it towards the end of 2023 and It’s not something I usually do with its strongest productions; It’s also not the way he published the new seasons of Game of Thrones.
In this way, it is almost certain that we will see the continuation until spring or summer 2024; In addition, this new installment will have more dragon battles, which implies more budget and much more post-production time for special effects.

How did ‘Game of Thrones’ premiere?
Game of Thrones premiered its seasons consecutively from 2011 to 2017, but from season seven to eight, fans of the series had to face the long two year wait until 2019.
The worst of all is that the wait was not worth it, since it only had six episodes poorly constructed at the script level; especially the Battle of Winterfell and the most controversial end of the series.
However, the followers of House of the Dragons they can sleep peacefully, because the work on which the series is based is already finished and there is no need for the writers to invent the key points of the story, as happened in the final season of game of Thrones.
Another point that gives certainty to the fans is that George R.R. Martin is fully involved in production, which is usually a guarantee of quality; let us remember that the writer no longer participated in the central part of the season finale of Game of Thrones.
Be that as it may, it is almost certain that we will have to wait until distant 2024 to see the second season.
