One of the highlights of the hit series "Game of Thrones" was certainly the appearance of dragons. As a result, HBO added the spin-off "House of the Dragon" in 2022, which focused even more on the fantasy creatures. New information about season 2 now makes fans' hearts flutter.

As Deadline recently reported, showrunner Ryan Condal spoke out and announced that there will be 5 new dragons in the next "House of the Dragon" season. The inspiration for this decision came when the author of the original novel "Fire & Blood", George R. R. Martin, expressed his excitement about the creative realization of the powerful creatures. For him, the dragons in the series "Game of Thrones" were all pretty much the same. In "House of the Dragon", however, they had distinct personalities and simply came alive.

However, producer Condal held back with further news about season 2. All that is known at the moment is that two new characters named Blood and Cheese will be added, who at least in the original book support Queen Rhaenyra's revenge. Apart from that, however, Martin's work continues only to serve as an outline for the series' rather independent plot.

At this point, the finale of "House of the Dragon" Season 2 is still being written, which probably won't see the light of day until 2024.
