What Will Season 2 Be About?

House of the Dragon is set within the same universe as Game of Thrones. Based on George R.R. Martin’s novel series Fire & Blood, the series is set around 200 years before the events of GoT and tells the story of House Targaryen and its fall from grace.

Season 2 picks up where the first instalment of the series left off, with tensions high following the death of Rhaenyra’s son, Prince Lucerys ‘Luke’ Velaryon (Elliot Grihault), at the hands of Alicent’s son Prince Aemond (Ewan Mitchell). The event of Luke’s death, as well as the miscarriage she experiences in the same episode, incites bloodlust in his mother, Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy) – igniting talk of war in Westeros.
