HBO has released the official trailer for House of the Dragon season 2, the prequel series to the incredibly popular and acclaimed Game of Thrones. This second season is due to premiere June 16th, and will consist of eight episodes.

In those episodes, the story will continue to chronicle the House Targaryen civil war – though after the death of *redacted* in season one’s breathless finale, things are sure to escalate drastically in this coming season, working up to the bloody ‘Dance of the Dragons’ – and is based on George R. R. Martin’s Fire & Blood. The new season features returning cast members Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Eve Best, Steve Toussaint, Fabien Frankel, Ewan Mitchell, Tom Glynn-Carney, Sonoya Mizuno, and Rhys Ifans. Additional cast reprising their season 1 roles includes Harry Collett, Bethany Antonia, Phoebe Campbell, Phia Saban, Jefferson Hall and Matthew Needham.

There’s also several new cast members that have come aboard for House of the Dragon season 2: Freddie Fox as 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.
