MOVIE NEWS – The latest behind-the-scenes footage from the second season of House of Dragons sheds new light on a well-known group that played a major role in Game of Thrones.
HBO’s successful prequel series, House of Dragons, set before Game of Thrones, tells the story of the Targaryen family’s decline in power caused by the war known as the Dance of Succession. This war gradually led to the loss of the family’s power, as fans of the original series will already be familiar with. According to information leaked during the filming of the second season of House of Dragons, the production is still going ahead, despite the fact that the actors’ unions are on strike. According to a new tweet shared by Redanian Intelligence, members of the Night’s Watch are arriving in Bourne Woods. In the video, men in dark, Game of Thrones cloaks ride horses as the crew watches on with smiles. The tweet was accompanied by two pictures so fans could take a closer look at the attire.

The appearance of the Night’s Watch in the House of Dragons, which takes place around two centuries before the events of the original Game of Thrones, raises the question of how long the Night’s Watch has been around. But fans have probably been eagerly awaiting their return. With their presence confirmed, viewers can once again expect to see the dreaded guardians of Westeros once again involved in the darkness and intrigue that threatens the lands they protect
The second season marks a new direction for the series, while keeping the showrunner’s earlier promise that the second season of House of Dragons would be more akin to the second season of Game of Thrones. Fans will thus be treated to a more traditional, Game of Thrones-style series that works off the plot thread of The Dance of the Dragons. Whether the series can continue the success of the first season, while also trying to reach an even larger audience, remains to be seen.
