A new House of the Dragon trailer shows that there is always a war for the Iron Throne.


HBO has released a second House of the Dragon trailer that shows the focus on the history of House Targaryen. From their hair to the use of dragons, there’s no mistaking who the focus of this series will be.

Matt Smith (Doctor Who) plays Prince Daemon Targaryen, Paddy Considine (Hot Fuzz) portrays King Viserys I Targaryen, and Emma D’Arcy (Wanderlust) plays Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen.

The dark-haired Hightower family is also in the trailer. Olivia Cooke (Ready Player One) is Lady Alicent Hightower, Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill) will play her father Ser Otto Hightower.

Other characters shown include Wil Johnson (Outlander) as Ser Vaemond Velaryon. John MacMillan (Chewing Gum) is Ser Laenor Velaryon, Savannah Steyn plays Lady Laena Velaryon, and Theo Nate stars as Ser Laenor Velaryon.

Seeing that the final season of Game of Thrones averaged around 44M viewers an episode across all outlets, this series is sure to do well from the outset. It will take time to grow to be sure, but there is still a lot of love for the franchise.

House of the Dragon will premiere on Aug. 21 on HBO.
