*House Of The Dragon S1 Spoilers Ahead*

If we had a nickel for every time a trailer for the second season of a big budget fantasy series based on an iconic book series released on a Tuesday in mid-May, we’d have two nickels. Which isn’t a lot, but it’s weird that it happened twice, right? Yes folks, within mere hours of the first teaser for The Rings Of Power Season 2 dropping yesterday, HBO fired back with its own fancy new trailer for House Of The Dragon’s second season. And sure enough, there be dragons. Check it out below:

As you may recall, Season 1’s breathless finale saw Aemond Targaryen’s (Ewan Mitchell) dragon Vhagar brutally kill his half-sister Rhaenyra’s (Emma D’Arcy) son Lucerys (Elliot Grihault). Families, eh? Unsurprisingly, Rhaenyra’s none-too-happy about Aemond’s heinous deed, and in this new trailer things are hotting up considerably as we build towards a ‘Dance of the Dragons’ — aka full-blown Targaryen Civil War. With Aegon II (Tom Glynn-Carney) reluctantly seated at the Iron Throne, the Rhaenyra- and Daemon (Matt Smith)-led Blacks and Alicent Hightower’s (Olivia Cooke) Greens are gearing up for an almighty scrap. This latest look at the series promises ice, fire, bloodshed, betrayal, liberal profanity, and — very interestingly — a return to the Wall. Winter may be a while away yet for Westeros, but even in the age of Targaryen rule, it is still coming.

Alongside the names mentioned above, the new season will also see returns for series regulars Eve Best, Steve Toussaint, Fabien Frankell, Tom Glynn-Carney, Sonoya Mizuno and Rhys Ifans. Harry Collett, Bethany Antonia, Phoebe Campbell, Phia Saban, Jefferson Hall and Matthew Needham are back too.

And as if that’s not already a veritable constellation of stars, the new season also brings with it new faces in the form of Freddie Fox’s Ser Gwayne Hightower, Simon Russell Beale’s Ser Simon Strong, Clinton Liberty’s Addam of Hull, Jamie Kenna’s Ser Alfred Broome, Kieran Bew’s Hugh, Tom Bennett’s Ulf, Tom Taylor’s Lord Cregan Stark, and Vincent Regan’s Ser Rickard Thorne. Forget House Of The Dragon, it’ll need to be at least a 'Mid-sized Country Estate Of The Dragon' to contain this mighty ensemble.

We'll see how those dragons dance when House Of The Dragon Season 2 premieres on 17 June on Sky Atlantic.
