Following the successful launch of episode 1, it has been confirmed that House of the Dragon will be returning for a second season. The series available exclusively on Sky and NOW in the UK has received strong critical acclaim. Based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” the series, set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, tells the story of House Targaryen.
Zai Bennett, MD of Content at Sky said:
“House of the Dragon is already proving to be a ratings hit, and we predict it will go from strength to strength due to the captivating storytelling and incredible production values. We look forward to sharing a second series with our customers on Sky and NOW.”
