HBO has finally thrown fans around the world a bone and given us an insight into when we can expect to see the second season of House of the Dragon.
The Game of Thrones prequel series was a certified hit with audiences when the first instalment of episodes dropped last year.
It was set well before the events of Jon Snow, Cersei Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen.
It focused on the Targaryen empire and the infighting that would eventually destroy the household and almost wipe out dragons from the Seven Kingdoms.
The TV show was based off author George R. R. Martin's book Fire & Blood and fans have been begging for more ever since the final episode aired.
Well, we finally know when we can expect to see new material on the small screen.
The second season was one of the very few projects that wasn't hindered by the writers and actors strike in Hollywood.
Entertainment Weekly revealed this was because of 'local regulations in the United Kingdom, where the show is partly being shot, compared to United States regulations'.
That meant filming could continue while the rest of Tinseltown was brought to a screaming halt.
Loads of projects have been delayed to late 2024 or even 2025.
Thankfully for House of the Dragon fans, they can expect to see the season season in 'early summer' next year (which is for all you northern hemisphere readers), according to HBO network chief Casey Bloys.
So, we could be getting it as early as late April or May.
Mark your calendars, people, because the second instalment of the TV show will no doubt be fairly hectic.
Everything was building towards an all-out war inside the House of Targaryen at the end of the first season.
Returning for the second instalment will be Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Eve Best, Steve Toussaint, Fabien Frankel, Ewan Mitchell, Tom Glynn-Carney, Sonoya Mizuno and Rhys Ifans.
However, we'll also be getting some new faces in Gayle Rankin as Alys Rivers, Simon Russell Beale as Ser Simon Strong, Freddie Fox as Ser Gwayne Hightower and Abubakar Salim as Alyn of HullFeatured Image Credit: HBO
