It's time to pick a side! As we first reported on, HBO and Max have released two duelling trailers for House of the Dragon season 2 giving fans the chance to pick "Green" or "Black." 

This is all meant to tie into the Targaryen civil war known as the "Dance of the Dragons," a conflict the Game of Thrones prequel's first season set the stage for. The Green trailer revolves around the Green Council and Queen Alicent Hightower's quest to get King Aegon II Targaryen on the Iron Throne.

In the Black trailer, we catch up with the Black Council, the supporters of Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen who were forced to watch her half-brother, Aegon, crowned king of Westeros behind her back, even though she was the chosen successor of their father, the fallen King Viserys.

The cast of House of the Dragon season 2 includes Matt Smith (Daemon Targaryen), Olivia Cooke (Alicent Hightower), Emma D'Arcy (Rhaenyra Targaryen), Eve Best (Rhaenys Targaryen), Steve Toussaint (Corlys Velaryon), Fabien Frankel (Criston Cole), Ewan Mitchell (Aemond Targaryen), Tom Glynn-Carney (Aegon Targaryen), Sonoya Mizuno (Mysaria), and Rhys Ifans (Otto Hightower). 

Also returning this season are actors Harry Collett (Jacaerys Velaryon), Bethany Antonia (Baela Targaryen), Phoebe Campbell (Rhaena Targaryen), Phia Saban (Queen Helaena Targaryen), Jefferson Hall (Lord Jason Lannister/Ser Tyland Lannister), and Matthew Needham (Larys Strong)

Clinton Liberty (Addam of Hull), Jamie Kenna (Ser Alfred Broome), Kieran Bew (Hugh), Tom Bennett (Ulf), Tom Taylor (Lord Cregan Stark), Vincent Regan (Ser Rickard Thorne), Abubakar Salim (Alyn of Hull), Gayle Rankin (Alys Rivers), Freddie Fox (Ser Gwayne Hightower), and Simon Russell Beale (Ser Simon Strong) have all also joined the cast.

The series is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, and tells the story of House Targaryen. House of the Dragon is based on Fire and Blood by George R.R. Martin, and is co-creator and executive producer along with Ryan Condal, who serves as showrunner. The executive producers of this new season are Sara Hess, Alan Taylor, Melissa Bernstein, Kevin de la Noy, Loni Peristere and Vince Gerardis. 

House of the Dragon returns to HBO and Max on June 16.

By the by, having "duelling trailers" is great marketing!

This show is REAL CINEMA
McMurdo - 3/21/2024, 2:16 PM
Obviously team Rhaenyra.

Season 1 dare I say was better than some of the very best seasons of Game of Thrones. Fight me. It was literally that fantastic. definitely rewatching to freshen up prior to s2.

narrow290 - 3/21/2024, 3:04 PM
@McMurdo - I'd say its better than seasons 6 through 8 for sure! And Rhaenyra is sooooo HOT
TheNewYorker - 3/21/2024, 4:15 PM
@McMurdo - some trolls are too funny lol
MrDandy - 3/21/2024, 8:58 PM
@McMurdo - Matt Smith killed it. Give this man more actual roles in good movies!
RegularPoochie - 3/22/2024, 2:40 AM
@McMurdo - by far!

Acolyte, The Boys and now House of the Dragon? June is gonna be a good month.

MotherGooseUPus - 3/21/2024, 2:53 PM
damn it. now i need to get HBO Max, just adding to my tab of stupid shit to pay for that i dont want to. Last of Us and now this show make Max a must add along with AppleTv for Monarch, The Dynasty and Silo. My bank account guna hate me
EZBeast - 3/21/2024, 3:52 PM
@MotherGooseUPus - worth it man! I watched this before watching got and binged it in like 3 days because it was just too good!
MotherGooseUPus - 3/21/2024, 4:12 PM
@EZBeast - i loved GoT until the last 3 seasons when it started falling apart... ive heard nothing but great things about this show so itll be must watch once i add it.
bkmeijer1 - 3/21/2024, 5:01 PM
@MotherGooseUPus - Thanks for the reminder of those three shows. I still have to catch up on Apple TV. I'll just save some up and take one month. Same with Prime and Disney+.
IronMan616 - 3/21/2024, 3:13 PM
I wonder when the Blood and Cheese episode is? I cannot wait for this to come back, it's been too long!
RegularPoochie - 3/22/2024, 2:48 AM
@IronMan616 - my bet is first, because that's when the fun begins, lol.
mountainman - 3/21/2024, 3:21 PM
Blacks > Greens all day.
bkmeijer1 - 3/21/2024, 5:02 PM
@mountainman - wonder if there's anyone who's team Green. Show made it pretty clear imo who the real claim holds
mountainman - 3/21/2024, 5:19 PM
@bkmeijer1 - As of right now, I’d guess most viewers lean towards the black side.

But I’ll just say that as this Dance commences, both sides start doing some pretty horrible things. Like most things in Westeros, there isn’t a clean cut good or bad side.
bkmeijer1 - 3/21/2024, 5:46 PM
@mountainman - yeah. Do think the trailers make it seem that atleast Rhaenery might regret her actions, whereas Alicent is just blaming it all on the other side. We'll see
mountainman - 3/21/2024, 5:56 PM
@bkmeijer1 - Even though I’m on Team Black just because I find it fun to root for them, I see both sides of this. And with a lot of Game of Thrones stuff, and even real world conflicts, I find powerful people squabbling to be petty and feel most bad for the innocents caught in the middle.

That being said - bring on more Dragons, backstabbing, intrigue, Daemon, Lord Corlys, and all the other wonderful stuff.
bkmeijer1 - 3/21/2024, 6:02 PM
@mountainman - oh yeah, it's highly intriguing. Really wanna see how the conflict changes both sides.

Also, if you like real life conflicts like this I suggest looking up the Wars of the Roses. GoT really is similar, if not based on that.
mountainman - 3/21/2024, 6:27 PM
@bkmeijer1 - George RR Martin based the Stark/Lannister conflict in the War of the Roses.
bkmeijer1 - 3/22/2024, 3:07 AM
@mountainman - yeah, and it makes sense too. Stark and Lannister does sound an awful like York and Lancaster
mountainman - 3/22/2024, 8:00 AM
@bkmeijer1 - Yes. And I seem to remember there was an event during that real life conflict that had similarities to the Red wedding.
bkmeijer1 - 3/22/2024, 10:50 AM
@mountainman - that period of time in Europe was wild, so I believe that without a doubt
mountainman - 3/22/2024, 10:55 AM
@bkmeijer1 - Are you watching Shogun? The politics there have some similarities and craziness.
bkmeijer1 - 3/22/2024, 12:20 PM
@mountainman - don't have Disney+ currently, but it's definitely on the list for when I have saved up some shows. Heard good things about it
RegularPoochie - 3/23/2024, 5:55 AM
@bkmeijer1 - it's amazing and best series there is right now until HoD comes back, but Shōgun ends before that wich is a good thing, at least imo.

I havent seen DCMarvelFreshman and LEEE777 in a while
AnthonyVonGeek - 3/21/2024, 3:34 PM
Started this show thinking it would be ok and ended up getting hooked on it. Can’t wait. 👍🙌
EZBeast - 3/21/2024, 3:34 PM
This show got me into game of thrones (yes I held off for a long while) and is one of the best damn shows streaming!
IronGenesis - 3/21/2024, 4:16 PM
Be interesting to see how the show runners respond to DAEMON’S unexpected popularity. Well…unexpected in their eyes.
