The second season of House of the Dragon will see two opposing clans of the Targaryen family fighting for the Iron Throne, and it’s time to pick a side. HBO teased the show’s return in June by dropping “Black” and “Green” trailers for the upcoming Season 2.

The “Black” trailer marks the return of Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy), who’s not planning to back down after her half-brother King Aegon (Tom Glynn-Carney) usurped the throne. She’s planning to reclaim her rightful place on the Iron Throne, and there are many allies by her side, ready to back her up.

Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke) isn’t one of them, and she’s ready to do whatever it takes to keep her son Aegon on the Iron Throne. The “Green” trailer sees her trying to show the world that Aegon is one true king, but that’s proving to be quite a challenge.

Season 2 will also star Matt Smith, Eve Best, Steve Toussaint, Fabien Frankel, Ewan Mitchell, Sonoya Mizuno, and Rhys Ifans, along with several newcomers to Westeros, including Abubakar Salim, Freddie Fox, Gayle Rankin, Simon Russell Beale, and Clinton Liberty.

The second season of House of the Dragon will premiere on HBO on June 16, and it will feature eight brand-new episodes.
