HBO has released the exciting new trailer for the highly anticipated second season of House of the Dragon, which is shaping up to be another huge hit. George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire provides the setting for the wildly famous fantasy series, and the next season will feature even more intrigue, drama, and spectacular dragon battles.

House of the Dragon Season 2 trailer

In the trailer, we see a montage of spectacular vistas, including dragons flying majestically and Westeros' vast expanses. We also get a sneak peek at the beloved characters as the eerie score builds, featuring Emma D'Arcy as the Targaryen queen Rhaenyra and Matt Smith as Daemon.


As the monarchy is on the brink of disintegration due to political manoeuvres and power battles, tensions are rising. The House of Targaryen has never been in a more precarious situation, with allies changing hands and betrayals at every turn. However, this new trailer wouldn't be complete without its jaw-dropping graphics.

The production values are really jaw-dropping, providing a visual feast for all those Westerosi fans out there with their flaming dragon breath and epic battle scenes.

Returning cast members include D'Arcy (Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen), Smith (Prince Daemon Targaryen), Olivia Cooke (Queen Alicent Hightower), Rhys Ifans (Otto Hightower), Eve Best (Princess Rhaenys Targaryen), Ewan Mitchell (Prince Aemond Targaryen), Steve Toussaint (Lord Corlys Velaryon), Fabien Frankel (Ser Criston Cole), Sonoya Mizuno (Mysaria), Graham McTavish (Ser Harrold Westerling), Matthew Needham (Larys Strong), and John MacMillan (Laenor Velaryon).

House of the Dragon Season 1 ending explained

Princess Rhaenys unexpectedly arrives on her dragon, interrupting Aegon II Targaryen's coronation ceremony. She opts to go to Dragonstone and join Rhaenyra's army instead of assaulting the Greens. A dramatic cliffhanger suggests the renowned "Dance of the Dragons" conflict between dragonriders at the episode's conclusion. Tragically, Prince Aemond and his dragon Vhagar killed Rhaenyra's son, Lucerys, heightening the tension. In light of this development, war seems imminent, particularly as Rhaenyra, who was previously uncertain, may now feel compelled to fight back in response to her son's death.

On June 17, House of the Dragon will return for a second season on JioCinema.
