In addition, here are the posters HBO revealed yesterday:


The new season will pay off the cliffhanger ending of the previous one, which definitively set Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy) and Alicent Hightower at war against each other, and it’s now more personal than ever before. The marketing campaign is clearly taking advantage of that too!

We know the second season will be a bit shorter, with only eight episodes, but plans for the third season are already underway. Some of the storylines that were originally planned for Season 2 were bumped into Season 3.

The network expected to give the third installment an early green light, so filming could actually begin this year if showrunner Ryan Condal and his team have been able to get the scripts in order while in most of Season 2.

For global audiences, “All Must Choose” their side of House Targaryen as the realm fractures in season two.
