How Many House of the Dragon Seasons Will There Be?


Can’t get enough of all of the drama and dragons? As House of the Dragon season 2 heats up, a lot of fans are wondering when they’ll get their next fix—and just how long the fantasy series will go on for.

The Game of Thrones prequel follows the Targaryen family about two centuries before the events that saw Bran take the Iron Throne (no, we still can’t get over that ending). While Game of Thrones lasted for six epic seasons, we don’t know exactly how many more seasons of House of the Dragon to expect—but we do have a few theories.

Warning: House of the Dragon spoilers ahead.

What is House of the Dragon about?

In House of the Dragon, we follow the fight for power between Rhaenyra Targaryen’s blacks and Alicent Hightower’s greens—the show is based on the events detailed in George R. R. Martin’s book Fire and Blood. The book traces the reign of Viserys and the Dance of the Dragons. This battle for power between the blacks and the greens ultimately sees all of the dragons killed and Aegon III, the son of Rhaenyra and Daemon, taking the throne. In the book, Aegon III is succeeded by his son Aegon IV and things wrap up there. (It’s pretty complicated. There are a lot of Aegons. Please find our comprehensive Targaryen family tree here for reference.)

In other words, the main action of the book is the mighty battle between Rhaenyra and Alicent—this is the battle that is currently playing out in season 2 of the show. This means that we could reach the end of Fire and Blood by the end of this season, or possibly by the end of next season of House of the Dragon.
