The Dance of the Dragons is ready to get underway! Fans have been waiting for some time to hear certain news about the streaming release of the new episodes of House of the Dragon, the Game of Thrones prequel series set a few hundred years earlier. Something is moving on this front. During a press conference, the head of global streaming & games for Warner Bros. Discovery JB Perrette revealed the official release period of the second season of the series. Previously, only a generic "summer 2024" had been indicated, an indication that left fans perplexed and waiting.

To their delight, however, they will not have to wait until late August or early September (the release period of the first season in 2022) to return to Westeros and experience the civil war between Targaryen and Hightower. House of the Dragon 2 will arrive in streaming in June 2024, for a great summer of fire and flames. There is no specific day yet, but having reduced the release window to a month is already a clear indication. In the first season of the series, we remember, we witnessed the events that led to the explosion of the so-called Dance of the Dragons, a bloody conflict that devastated the continent of Westeros and which over time marked the decline of the Targaryen family. 

It all started when, upon the death of King Viserys I, Otto Hightower and his supporters refused to recognize the designated heir, Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, instead crowning Prince Aegon II. The second season of House of the Dragon, of which the first trailer was shown three months ago, will see the return of Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D'Arcy, Eve Best, Steve Toussaint, Fabien Frankel, Ewan Mitchell to the cast, Tom Glynn-Carney, Sonoya Mizuno and Rhys Ifans. Harry Collett, Bethany Antonia, Phoebe Campbell, Phia Saban, Jefferson Hall, and Matthew Needham will also be in attendance.

On the new entry front we will instead see the entry into the cast of Gayle Rankin in the role of Alys Rivers, Simon Russell Beale in the role of Ser Simon Strong, Freddie Fox in the role of Ser Gwayne Hightower, Abubakar Salim in that of Alyn of Hull, Clinton Liberty as Addam of Hull, Jamie Kenna as Ser Alfred Broome, Kieran Bew as Hugh, Tom Bennett as Ulf, Tom Taylor as Lord Cregan Stark and Vincent Regan as Ser Rickard Thorne.
