House Of The Dragon Isn't Committing To George R.R. Martin's Four-Season Estimate
“House of the Dragon” fans can rest easy knowing that a second season of the “Game of Thrones” prequel is coming. While the second season has been confirmed for some time, viewers are already wondering about a third and fourth season, and although George R.R. Martin insists that four seasons are necessary, showrunner Ryan Condal isn’t so sure.
On his blog, George R.R. Martin said “It’s going to take four full seasons of 10 episodes to do justice to the Dance of the Dragons,” however Martin isn’t exactly great at predicting how long a story will take to tell. When asked by The Hollywood Reporter, Condal said “I don’t know yet, is the honest answer," but he’s certain there will be “more storytelling to come after season two.”
In terms of future seasons, Condal has wondered how much of the story he’ll adapt beyond Dance of the Dragons, saying, “The question is less where this story ends and more where does the curtain fall [on the show].” The showrunner is prioritizing the present challenges, saying "I'm very focused on the 10 episodes in front of me at the moment."
