House of the Dragon was quickly given the green light for a second season after HBO viewers flocked to watch the Game of Thrones spin-off in their droves. One man who emerged as a pivotal figure was none other than Lord Corlys (played by Steve Toussaint) who’ll be back for what’s bound to be an almighty war between the Targaryens and Hightowers.

However, with anticipation levels sky-high for season two to hit screens as soon as possible, Toussaint had poured cold waters on fans’ hope that production is in full swing.

“I haven’t actually seen any scripts yet,” he said when asked about the second season of HOTD.

However, he added to Extra a few tidbits of information to keep excitement levels rising.

He went on: “I’ve been told some good stuff’s gonna happen. 

“I think pretty much as is indicated at the end of this last season is the fact that he decided whatever I may think about Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) personally, she is the rightful heir to the throne. 

“The land grab the Hightowers have done is treacherous, and they need to be made to pay for that. 

“Plus… the fact is my grandson has been killed. Even though we know he’s not my grandson, but he’s my grandson. 

“So, I think that’s kind of where he’s at, that that has to be paid for.”

Heading into season two, it’s clear Rhaenyra has Corlys’s support after he gave up his own plans to take the Iron Throne following Viserys’s (Paddy Considine) death. 

However, the stage has been set for all-out war as Rhaenyra vies for her spot on the Iron Throne against the Hightowers, led by Alicent (Olivia Cooke) and Otto (Rhys Ifans), who also have a formidable backing.

Corlys is now in sole charge of the Velaryon fleet while Rhaenyra and Daemon (Matt Smith) also have the power of six dragons behind them.

While they also have the allyship of a number of houses, the Hightowers are backed by none other than Game of Thrones’s formidable Lannisters.

They’ve earned – or snatched – the allegiance of the Kingsguard and City Watch while also harbouring support from members of the Small Council as well.

Season two will also have to address the fallout of Lucerys/Luke’s (Elliot Grihault) death.

But with Toussaint still yet to even read the scripts, it seems fans are in for quite the wait until new episodes are filmed and brought to the screen.

He won’t be the only big-name star to reprise their role in season two either.

D’Arcy, Cooke, Ifans and the majority of the main cast will be back.

However, it’s unlikely Considine will return to House of the Dragon given Viserys’s death in the first run.

But with HOTD and GOT no stranger to a time jump or flashback, fans may have a slim hope of seeing House of the Dragon’s first king back on screens.

House of the Dragon is available to stream on NOW now.
