HBO Drops ‘House of the Dragon’ Dueling Season 2 Trailers

The highly anticipated second season of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ prequel series, based on George R.R. Martin’s ‘Fire & Blood,’ debuts on HBO and streams June 16 on Max.

HBO released ‘Dueling’ trailers (and SOOO many images!) for Game of Thrones prequel series House of Dragon Season 2, which debuts Sunday, June 16 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO and streams on Max. The trailers were released yesterday at Series Mania in Lille, France by Francesca Orsi, executive vice president, HBO Programming, head of HBO Drama Series & Films as part of Warner Bros. Discovery’s announcement that Max will begin launching in Europe on May 21.

Based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” the series, set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, tells the story of House Targaryen. Now, Westeros is on the brink of a bloody civil war with the Green and Black Councils fighting for King Aegon and Queen Rhaenyra, respectively. As each side believes theirs to be the rightful seat on the Iron Throne, the Green and Black trailers reflect those two perspectives in separate yet complementary halves of the same story.

Global audiences, “All Must Choose” their side of House Targaryen as the realm fractures in Season 2. Watch: House of the Dragon: Official Dueling Trailers (Green or Black?)
