Makers HBO have already green lit a third series, which stars Brit talent including Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke and Emma D’Arcy.

As a prequel, the story in House of the Dragon takes place around 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones.

The original show, which aired from 2011 to 2019, was itself based on the novel series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin.

The plot of House of the Dragon portrays the decline of House Targaryen.

This bloodline was most notably represented in Game of Thrones by Daenerys Targaryen – portrayed by Emilia Clarke – a lead character throughout the show’s run.

Central figures in House of the Dragon’s first series include King Viserys I Targaryen (Paddy Considine), as well as his younger brother Prince Daemon Targaryen (played by former Doctor Who star Matt Smith).

Eager fans can catch brand new episodes of series two at 2am on Sky Atlantic each week at the same time as they’re broadcast in the US.

Otherwise, you can wait until they are shown later in the day at 9pm and on-demand.

To mark the show’s return, Sky has introduced some new House of the Dragon themed voice commands.

They work on Sky’s main three boxes, Sky Stream, Sky Glass and Sky Q.
