HOUSE of the Dragon showrunner Ryan Condal has promised fans the Game of Thrones prequel will pick up next season.

The first season of HBO’s first Game of Thrones prequel came to an end on Sunday after receiving acclaim from die-hard fantasy fans over the past ten weeks.

After returning to the world of Westeros once more in the first outing of House of the Dragon, there is even more action, bloodshed and betrayal to come from House Targaryen.

Showrunner Ryan has assured fans the second season of House of the Dragon will be much more action-packed.

While some viewers have been somewhat disappointed by the first season’s slower pace and distracting time jumps, Ryan promised the series will find its footing in season two.

The writer revealed the action was deliberately slowed down for this year’s season in order to give fans a better chance to get to know House of the Dragon’s cast of characters.

“We will get to the spectacle,” he promised fans.

“But you have to understand these people’s complexities before they’re thrown into war.

“Series two will hit the rhythms people came to expect from the middle run of Game of Thrones.

“But it will have been earned, and viewers will feel the tragedies because we put the work in.”

The head writer also assured fans that season two won’t be quite as serious as this year’s outing.

“There will be natural pathways into moments of levity,” he said of the forthcoming follow-up.

“I think Matt Smith is very funny. If there is one character that does not care, it is Daemon.”

A release date for season two is not yet known, though viewers should anticipate at least a year’s wait before a possible premiere in late 2023 or early 2024.

House of the Dragon is available to stream on Sky Atlantic and NOW in the UK.
