Sky has released two official trailers for the second season of House of the Dragon, the HBO TV series based on the novel Fire and Blood by George R.R. Martin. It is set 200 years before the events mentioned in Game of Thrones and tells the story of House Targaryen. The new episodes will debut starting on June 17th on Sky and streaming only on NOW, at the same time as the American broadcast.

Plot and official trailer for the second season of House of the Dragon

Westeros is on the brink of a bloody civil war, with the Green and Black Councils fighting for King Aegon and Queen Rhaenyra respectively. Each of the two factions believes their aspiration to the Iron Throne is legitimate, so the brand new double trailer of the series, that of the Greens and that of the Blacks, reflects these two perspectives, divided but complementary halves of the same story.  House of the Dragon season 2 will see the kingdom split: everyone will have to choose which faction of House Targaryen to support. 

Even the fans. So much so that two trailers were released, one dedicated to Team Green (King Aegon II Targaryen, Ser Criston Cole, Prince Aemond Targaryen, and Queen Alicent Hightower) and one to Team Black (Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen, Prince Daemon Targaryen, Princess Rhaenys Targaryen, and Lord Corlys Velaryon). In eight new episodes, the second season of House of the Dragon features in the cast the already protagonists of the first season Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D'Arcy, Eve Best, Steve Toussaint, Fabien Frankel, Ewan Mitchell, Tom Glynn-Carney, Sonoya Mizuno and Rhys Ifans.

Harry Collett, Bethany Antonia, Phoebe Campbell, Phia Saban, Jefferson Hall, and Matthew Needham also return in the new episodes. New entries in the cast of the new season: Abubakar Salim (will be Alyn of Hull), Gayle Rankin (Alys Rivers), Freddie Fox (Ser Gwayne Hightower), Simon Russell Beale as Ser Simon Strong, Clinton Liberty as Addam of Hull, Jamie Kenna as Ser Alfred Broome, Kieran Bew as Hugh, Tom Bennett as Ulf, Tom Taylor as Lord Cregan Stark and Vincent Regan as Ser Rickard Thorne.
