HBO renews House of the Dragon for season 3

With just a few days to go for the premiere of the much-anticipated House of the Dragon season 2, HBO has officially renewed the series for a third season.

"George, Ryan, and the rest of our incredible executive producers, cast, and crew, have reached new heights with the phenomenal second season," said HBO’s programming and drama series chief Francesca Orsi 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," he added.

House of the Dragon, which is the prequel to the hit series Game of Thrones, follows the events two centuries before the original. The ten episodes of the prequel's first season depicted how the House of Targaryen fell into a bitter and brutal civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons — presaging the beginning of the end of the ruling family of Westeros.

The series, created by author George RR Martin and screenwriter Ryan J Condal, based on Martin's novel Fire & Blood, stars an ensemble cast including Emma D'Arcy, Matt Smith, Rhys Ifans, Olivia Cooke and Fabien Frankel. Previously announced newcomers are Abubakar Salim as Alyn of Hull, Gayle Rankin as Alys Rivers, Freddie Fox as Ser Gwayne Hightower, Simon Russell Beale as Ser Simon Strong, 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.

House of the Dragon is executive produced by Sara Hess, Alan Taylor, Melissa Bernstein, Kevin de la Noy, Loni Peristere and Vince Gerardis.

The second season will premiere on the streamer on June 17, every Monday along with the U.S. on JioCinema Premium in India.
