In just over a month, House of the Dragon returns.

HBO and Max debuted a new trailer for the second season of the hit Game of Thrones spinoff today. It teases renewed hostilities over control of the Iron Throne some 200 years before the original Game of Thrones, plus loads of political intrigue, and, of course, a whole bunch of dragons. Why it’s a veritable song of ice and fire.
