HBO announced today that House of the Dragon has been renewed for Season 2. The early pickup comes after a record-breaking start to the prequel series; its premiere episode on Sunday garnered the largest audience for an original show in network history.

Based on George R.R. Martin's 'Fire & Blood' novel, House of the Dragon is set 200 years before the events of 'Game of Thrones,' which concluded in 2019 after an 8-year run. The series chronicles the story of House Targaryen, including the events leading up to the Targaryen civil war, aka the 'Dance of the Dragons', and the war that erupted over control of the legendary Iron Throne.
