House of the Dragon showrunner promises faster pace in Season 2

“You have to understand the complexities of these people before throwing them into the war,” said showrunner Ryan Condal.

When the Season 1 finale of House of the Dragon airs tonight, it will mark the end of a slow-burning first season that often prioritized character development over the fast-paced violence that made Game of Thrones a massive hit did for HBO. But according to showrunner Ryan Condal, that’s about to change.

In a new interview with the Sunday Times, Condal explained that the intentional pacing in Season 1 was an artistic choice, but promises the next few episodes will pick up the pace.

“We’ll get to the spectacle,” said Condal. “But you have to understand the complexities of these people before throwing them into the war.”

He added, “Series 2 will achieve the rhythms that people have been expecting from the middle season of ‘Game of Thrones,’ but it will be deserved and viewers will feel the tragedies because we put the work into it.”

The increase in intensity in Season 2 doesn’t necessarily mean it will always match Game of Thrones in terms of sex and violence. While the first season of House of the Dragon had its share of explicit moments, it also exercised restraint, particularly with acts of sexual violence. Condall continues to believe that you can tell a compelling story without having to show every disturbing act.

“When the rape happened in episode eight, it haunts viewers because they see what it does to the young woman instead of seeing the event itself,” he said. “It’s the story we’re telling – we can imagine what it was like. We’ve seen it on TV before. You don’t have to see the action yourself.”

As Condal looks ahead to Season 2, he remains proud of what the series has achieved in its debut season, particularly its ability to dominate conversations in an increasingly saturated entertainment landscape.

“It’s a challenging series because we live in a world where people are being torn between multiple screens and channels, and we’re asking you to watch out through crazy timeline shifts and actor recasts. But it has had an effect.”
