After a long wait ‘Game of Thrones’ fans have finally got a spin-off series ‘House of the Dragon’. And while the former was a huge hit, its abrupt ending left GOT fans disappointed. But seems like the makers are adamant to overcome the past as the first episode of ‘House of the Dragon’ itself went on to achieve a new milestone just hours after its premiere.
While HBO’s ‘House of the Dragon’ edged past ‘Stranger Things S4‘ on its first day itself as nearly 10 million people in the US watched the newly arrived fantasy drama, reports suggest that the viewership figure has now gone past 20 million in the past few days. And given the phenomenal success of the series, the makers have officially renewed ‘House of the Dragon’ for another season.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Francesca Orsi, executive VP, HBO programming, confirmed the same and said, “We are beyond proud of what the entire House of the Dragon team has accomplished with season one.” Furthermore, she continued, “Our phenomenal cast and crew undertook a massive challenge and exceeded all expectations, delivering a show that has already established itself as must-see-TV. We couldn’t be more excited to continue bringing to life the epic saga of House Targaryen with season two.”
Based on George RR Martin’s book Fire & Blood, the new series ‘House of the Dragon’ which features an ensemble cast comprising of Matt Smith, Paddy Considine, Emma D’arcy, Rhys Ifans, Olivia Cooke and others, will now return with another season soon. And fans of the franchise have flooded social media with excitement post the announcement.
To no one’s surprise, House of the Dragon already renewed for Season 2 by HBO.
