House of the Dragon: Watch The Brand New Trailer For Season 2

HBO’s fantasy epic looks to be going even bigger with the second season, as war brews over the Iron Throne.

House of the Dragon returns with its fire-breathing second season in just a matter of weeks, and today HBO released a brand new trailer for the sprawling fantasy drama.

The trailer showcases the increasingly explosive tensions between two factions of House Targaryen, which stands on the brink of war over their competing claims to the Iron Throne of Westeros. As Queen Alicent (Olivia Cooke) fights to secure her son’s position in King’s Landing, Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) seeks to keep her tenuous alliances as she reasserts her claim as the heir of King Viserys.

Check out the new trailer:

The new season begins June 16 (9/8c) on HBO and Max.
