A major change that the series has undergone ahead of season 2 is Miguel Sapochnik stepping down from co-showrunner duties, leaving Ryan Condal completely in charge. Understandably, there have been changes to the cast as well, and fans will be treated to a host of new faces in season 2.

Here’s a list of actors that have joined the cast for season 2:

Season 2 of House of the Dragon is set to revolve around the battle for the Iron Throne, as both Rhaenyra and Aegon declared themselves queen and king, respectively, in season 1. The first season was mostly about the writers setting up character introductions for viewers, and it is highly unlikely that there will be any more time jumps or recasts. The second season does promise to have more action sequences looking at how events panned out in George R.R. Martin’s books following Lucerys’ death, and one of these pivotal moments will be based around the Battle at Rook’s Rest.

House of the Dragon season 2 premieres on Max on June 16.
