Just a few days before the second season of the Game of Thrones prequel series premieres on HBO, the network has renewed House of the Dragon for season 3.

Given how successful the first season was, it’s not an especially shocking development. Talking to Deadline last year, HBO EVP Francesca Orsi suggested that House of the Dragon would last at least four seasons. She also claimed that the turnaround between seasons 2 and 3 would be shorter than the gap between the first and second seasons.

Francesca Orsi, head of HBO drama series and films, said: “George, Ryan, and the rest of our incredible executive producers, cast, and crew, have reached new heights with the phenomenal second season of House of the Dragon. We are in awe of the dragon-sized effort the entire team has put into the creation of a spectacular season two, with a scope and scale that is only rivaled by its heart. We could not be more thrilled to continue the story of House Targaryen and watch this team burn bright again for season three.”

The news also comes days after A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin revealed he and playwright Eboni Booth are working on another Game of Thrones spinoff for HBO. The Ten Thousand Ships pilot was previously scrapped by the network, but it sounds like Martin and Co. are giving Nymeria and the Rhoynar another go.

House of the Dragon season 2 premieres on HBO this Sunday, June 16, at 9:00 PM ET.
