The bloody war is far from being over yet.

It surely didn’t come as something truly unexpected, though it’s still great news for the biggest fantasy drama’s fans. Game of Thrones ’ epic prequel House of the Dragon has just been renewed for a third season ahead of the second installment’s premiere that is set to hit Max this Sunday.
