House of the Dragon has risen like a fire to the industry, as it gained millions of hearts and created a deep impression in fans. Fans were eagerly awaiting the drama’s season, and it now seems that there would be more color in the upcoming one. Recently, Ryan Condal, the showrunner for House of the Dragon, promised that season two would bring more humor and war.

The leaders of the House of the Dragon have promised that the second season will have more of the action-packed episodes that the millions of Game of Thrones viewers have come to expect, as well as more humor reminiscent of the first season.

Ryan Condal, the show’s creator, revealed to The Times in London that the first season’s plot was purposefully sluggish to ensure that fans would become attached to the new characters.

“We will get to the spectacle. But you have to understand these people’s complexities before they’re thrown into war.”

“Series two will hit the rhythms people came to expect from the middle run of Game of Thrones, but it will have been earned, and viewers will feel the tragedies because we put the work in.”

The first season of Thrones, which concluded in the US on HBO, has also stood out for its more restrained portrayal of sexual violence, with assaults in the story taking place off-screen rather than on-screen as they did in the original series. Cordal went forward and told times about the story.

“While there are uncomfortable scenes in the show, we tried to stay away from anything that felt superfluous in the telling of the story.”

“So when the rape [by Prince Aegon of a servant girl] happened in episode eight, it haunts viewers because they see what it does to the young woman instead of seeing the event itself. It is the story we are telling — we can imagine what it looked like. We have seen it on TV before. You don’t need to see the act itself.”

Condal assured that the upcoming season will feature more humorous moments as the authors work to incorporate “natural paths towards moments of levity” into the drama. He recognized, however, that they are unable to capitalize on the comedic talents of Emmy winner Peter Dinklage, who in Game of Thrones portrayed aristocratic dwarf Tyrion Lannister to such startling effect.

“I think Matt Smith is very funny. If there is one character that does not care, it is Daemon.”

The series has thus far been a success for HBO, averaging a healthy 29 million viewers in the US, numbers that are thought to be triumphant in 2022 (albeit dwarfed by the figures of 40 million+ for the original Thrones). At the reception, Condal acknowledged his personal relief.

“It is a challenging series because we live in a world where people are torn between multiple screens and channels, and we are requiring you to pay attention through crazy timeline shifting and actor recasting. But it’s made an impact.”

It was revealed that each episode costs $20 million, and HBO will be pleased to hear this. However, What’s your take on the upcoming season? Let us know in the comments. For further updates stay tuned to Thirsty.
