Here’s what Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming, Head of HBO Drama Series and Films, had to say about this House of the Dragon renewal:

George, Ryan, 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.


We can’t really say we feel surprised that House of the Dragon will see season three. We’d honestly be way more surprised if HBO canceled it at this point. The series promises to bring to life some riveting parts of the Game of Thrones novel Fire & Blood, like the infamous “Blood and Cheese” moment. And we can’t wait to see what’s in store. But hey, it always feels good to go into a season of TV knowing another one will follow. That’s not always a guarantee at this point. And we definitely can’t wait to see more dragons.

So, even though we do not feel surprised, shocked, or even a little taken aback by this news, we are happy to hear that House of the Dragon has been renewed for season three. Fire, blood, cheese, dragons, wigs, and whatever else awaits us. We are ready.
