Recommended Posts

A month ago, it was revealed that press had been given a screening of a season 2 teaser. We speculated then that it would be something fans would get to look at within a month… and as it happens, to the very day of our post, the season 2 teaser has been released by HBO. See it below!

Besides this, yesterday HBO released a pair of new character posters featuring Rhaenyra and Alicent… and now today they’ve released quite a few stills or on-set photographs from the new season, to whet the appetites of fans. See those below!

Ryan Condal is such a god send. I don't think D&D bothered with this much effort.

Having the heraldry of minor houses is great. Shows that he and the team care. Hopefully he can keep it up with the minor details that breath life into the world he's trying to show.

I thought the not having the heraldry be more prominent for minor houses was one of the biggest mistakes on the original series.  It could have really helped casual viewers remember who certain characters were and especially with all of the re-castings of Ser Gregor, it could have helped with recognition.

Ryan did say one of the top three things George asked him to do was to make more use of the heraldry and the general colorfulness George envisioned from the world. But yeah, he's a good egg for going for it.

Didn’t George also ask for Jaehaerys II to be brought back into the show canon? As far as I’m aware, that still hasn’t happened.

Yes, but not sure there's really a way for that to happen on this show, unless they do the thing of moving on to covering other Targaryen eras.

The official HBO PR account put out a tweet announcing how well the trailer did. Is that something that entertainment companies normally do? Is it just because people on Reddit were saying The Boys trailer was better? HOTD is clearly more tailored for Twitter than Reddit.

(Side note: we really may be entering the era of video game adaptations. I haven’t even watched The Witcher, but there’s no denying that fanboys are clamoring for more of them, judging by the buzz around Fallout. I get the impression that TLOU was also a bigger hit than HBO was expecting).

It's become more common for all the streamers to basically constantly send out PR about things. I get so much more PR mail from HBO than I used three years ago, for example. They want media to pick it up and amplify it.
