– House of the Dragon season 2 will have fewer episodes than season 1
– The choice for a shorter season is based on creative reasons
– Exact number of episodes has not been confirmed
The highly anticipated HBO series House of the Dragon’s second season is set to have fewer episodes than its first season. A recent report outlines the creative reasons behind the decision to go for a shorter season in the Game of Thrones prequel.
The article suggests that the reason for the reduced episode count in the second season is due to creative factors rather than any production or scheduling issues. The exact number of episodes has not been confirmed, but it is expected to be less than the ten episodes in the show’s first season.
House of the Dragon, based on George R.R. Martin’s novel Fire & Blood, explores the history of House Targaryen 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones. HBO has greenlit the series with a straight-to-series order, and the premiere of the first season is scheduled for 2022.
Miguel Sapochnik and Condal will serve as co-showrunners and executive producers, along with Martin. Sapochnik is also set to direct the pilot and additional episodes throughout the series. The cast includes Paddy Considine, Emma D’Arcy, and Matt Smith, among others.
