House of the Dragon Season 2 production faces potential delays due to SAG strike affecting actors

– Production of “House of The Dragon” Season 2 could be delayed
– SAG-AFTRA considers a strike due to expired contract
– No new deal reached between actors’ union and TV production studios

The second season of HBO‘s “House of The Dragon” might face production delays due to a potential SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) strike. The actors’ union is currently considering a strike after the expiration of their contract with TV production studios.

SAG-AFTRA’s National Board of Directors decided on September 26 to seek a strike authorization from members to push for better wages and working conditions, which could lead to production delays and setbacks. Several TV shows, including high-profile productions like “House of The Dragon,” might fall victim to ensuing production halts if a deal is not reached between the union and studios.

The union has been negotiating with the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers, which represents big-name studios such as HBO, but so far, no new contract has been agreed upon. According to SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher, “We are fighting not just for our members, but also for a fair and just industry for all.”

Should the actors’ union choose to strike, the first steps would involve getting majority approval from union members, followed by meeting the requirements of the National Labor Relations Board, before any strike could officially begin. In the meantime, the producers and studios are expected to continue negotiations to avoid any possible work stoppages.

“House of The Dragon” is the highly anticipated prequel to “Game of Thrones,” set 200 years before the events of the original series. The first season is currently in production and expected to premiere in 2022. However, if a strike were to occur, the subsequent seasons’ production schedules could be significantly impacted.
