Last year, amid the SAG-AFTRA Hollywood strikes, HBO dropped a massive update about the release of House of the Dragon’s second season after months of uncertainty and chaos.

At the time, HBO Max boss Casey Bloys shared in a press conference that the forthcoming season will be released in “early summer” this year, with a major change.

Casey confirmed that the new series will only consist of eight episodes instead of ten, unlike the first outing.

Now, not one but two new trailers of the fantasy drama series based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood have been dropped ahead of its anticipated release this summer

The black trailer focused on Rhaenrya, Prince Daemon, and their forces in Dragonstone, while the Green trailer centered around the King’s Landing team of Alicent, her father Otto, and her children, King Aegon and Prince Aemond. 

House Of Dragon viewers will be forced to choose between the green or black teams as the half-siblings fight to the death for the Iron throne in season two, which premieres on June 16. 

The new series, set 200 years before Game of Thrones events, will officially mark the start of the Dance of the Dragons, the Targaryen civil war.

Season one followed Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, played by Emma D’Arcy, in her fight to be named King Viserys I’s (Patty Considine) chosen heir and the lead-up to the war of succession between the Targaryens.

Episode one of season one gained nearly 10 million viewers, marking HBO’s biggest series premiere in history

The season finale saw war looming in Westeros following the murders of Rhaenyra’s son Lucerys and his dragon at the hand of Aemond.

In the first-look trailers, the blacks and greens armies are both assembling their forces, dragons, and new allies as they face off in a bloody, fiery battle.

Meanwhile, in King’s Landing, young King Aegon is doubling down on his claim to the Iron Throne, which his half-sister Rhaenyra views as her rightful inheritance from their late father, King Otto.

The trailers also teased a return to Winterfell, the Starks’ snowy home ruled over by Cregan Stark in the prequel.

Returning to their roles in season two of House of the Dragon are Emma D’Arcy as Rhaenyra Targaryen, Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower, Matt Smith as Daemon Targaryen, Ewan Mitchell as Aemond Targaryen, Eve Best as Rhaena Targaryen, Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower, Steve Toussaint as Corlys Velaryon, Fabien Frankel as Criston Cole and Tom Glynn-Carney as Aegon Targaryen.

New cast joining the forthcoming series include Tom Taylor as Lord Cregan Stark, Clinton Liberty as Addam of Hull, Jamie Kenna as Ser Alfred Broome, Kieran Bew as Hugh Hammer, Tom Bennett as Ulf and Vincent Regan as Ser Rickard Thorne.

Other newcomers include Abubakar Salim as Alyn of Hull, Gayle Rankin as Alys Rivers, Freddie Fox as Ser Gwayne Hightower and Simon Russell Beale as Ser Simon Strong. The cast also includes Sonoya Mizuno, Harry Collett, Phoebe Campbell, Bethany Antonia, Phia Saban, Jefferson Hall and Matthew Needham.
