House of the Dragon Season 2: WBD Executive Confirms June Premiere

A Warner Bros. Discovery executive confirmed that HBO & Showrunner Ryan Condal's House of the Dragon Season 2 will premiere this June.

Article Summary

  • House of the Dragon Season 2 set to premiere in June, confirmed by WBD exec.
  • Warner Bros. Discovery's J.B. Perrette revealed the month at a recent conference.
  • George R.R. Martin teases potential for a third and fourth season in development.
  • New and returning cast members enrich the upcoming House of the Dragon season.

Sorry, Matt Smith – you were off by two months… in a good way. The last time we checked in on how things were going regarding a release date on the second season of HBO & Showrunner Ryan Condal's House of the Dragon, Smith joined BBC's The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show for "Friends Round Friday," where he was asked by host Zoe Ball (with Davina McCall and Frank Skinner) when we can expect Season 2 to kick off. He thought it would be August – but thanks to Warner Bros. Discovery streaming and gaming chief J.B. Perrette, it turns out that the "Game of Thrones" prequel series will unleash its second season this June. Perrette made the reveal during today's interview at Morgan Stanley's Technology, Media and Telecom Conference. Unfortunately, a specific date hasn't been confirmed. As for the series' future, George R.R. Martin previously shared on his Not a Blog site ("A Visit to Old Blighty") that work was continuing – with both a third and fourth season in mind.
