Here’s some unsurprising news: HBO has officially greenlit House of the Dragon for a third season. The announcement comes just a couple of days before season two of the show premieres on HBO and starts streaming on Max.

House of the Dragon is the first spinoff from HBO’s Game of Thrones and takes place 200 years before the events of the original show. Both are based on the works of George R.R. Martin, with Ryan Condal helming the latest series, which stars Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy, and Olivia Cooke, among many others.

“George, Ryan, and the rest of our incredible executive producers, cast, and crew, have reached new heights with the phenomenal second season,” HBO’s programming and drama series chief Francesca Orsi said in a statement. “We are in awe of the dragon-sized effort the entire team has put into the creation of a spectacular season two, with a scope and scale that is only rivaled by its heart. We could not be more thrilled to continue the story of House Targaryen and watch this team burn bright again for Season Three.”

House of the Dragon has become one of HBO’s most successful series. The first season averaged 29 million views per episode and season two has already gotten a largely positive response from critics, and currently has an 88% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

For those looking for even more television viewing experiences in the Game of Thrones world, don’t fret. House of the Dragon will soon be joined by many, many other Game of Thrones spinoffs, including potentially Ten Thousand Ships, a show based on Princess Nymeria that Martin just shared has been revitalized with a new scriptwriter on board.

In the meantime, season two of House of the Dragon premiers June 16, 2024 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and streaming on Max. icon-paragraph-end
