HBO has announced the renewal of House of the Dragon for a third season, even before the premiere of Season 2. House of the Dragon, a prequel to George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones, has quickly become one of HBO’s and the Max streaming service’s most popular series.

HBO’s Official Statement

HBO executive vice president Francesca Orsi shared the following statement regarding the renewal:

“George [R.R. Martin], [co-creator] Ryan [Condal], and the rest of our incredible executive producers, cast, and crew, have reached new heights with the phenomenal second season of *HOUSE OF THE DRAGON*. We are in awe of the dragon-sized effort the entire team has put into the creation of a spectacular season two, with a scope and scale that is only rivaled by its heart. We could not be more thrilled to continue the story of House Targaryen and watch this team burn bright again for season three.”

Series Background
