Production is set to begin, here's what HBO boss had to say...
HBO boss Casey Bloys has news for us! He has presented us with an update on when we can expect season 2 of House Of The Dragon. Filming the Game of Thrones Prequel series in the UK and in Spain is set to start next month. Yay! We already know that the much-anticipated spin-off series won't be released this year and small news like this will make the wait time a tad bit less painful. However, we can definitely expect the show by 2024. That is exactly what Bloys said to Variety. That's the extent of it though, he did not share any release date as of now. But we know that HBO does care about the Emmy like everyone else and the nomination season ends on May 31, 2024, so it won't be foolish of us to expect the next season before that. Bloys also talked about if we will get more Game Of Thrones spin-off series,
"My philosophy is a good script is the number one priority," he said. "I am not doing it based on wanting to have one [show] a year, two a year. I want to do it based on the scripts that we’re excited about."
"Remember, to get House of the Dragon following up from Game of Thrones, we developed a lot of shows, shot a pilot, developed a bunch of scripts and we got House of the Dragon.
"To do that again is going to take the same amount of effort. You have to develop a lot of things, and try things. You never know what’s going to work. So we’re currently doing that.
"I’m not opposed to any number of shows. There’s probably a natural limit to how many fans want, but I’m open to any as long as we feel really good about the scripts and the prospects for a series."

It takes a while to get one that hits the mark. I know George [R.R. Martin] feels the same way."
Author of the series and creator of this fantasy land George RR Martin recently said how HBO and Disney+ merger has impacted many projects. Here's what he said on his official blog,
"None have been greenlit yet, though we are hoping… maybe soon. A couple has been shelved, but I would not agree that they are dead."
