Dragons Roar On Despite Writers' Strike: House of the Dragon Season 2 Continues Filming with Ready-to-Go Scripts

Wow, “House of the Dragon” season 2 doesn’t need writers anymore, as filming will continue despite the writers’ strike since all scripts were finished! In shocking news, it seems that the upcoming U.S. writers’ strike may not have the power to slay the dragons of “House of the Dragon.”

According to Variety, the HBO series is set to continue filming its second season in the UK despite the strike action. Fortunately for the show, its scripts have been completed, meaning that the writers’ strike should have no effect on the shoot. It remains to be seen, however, whether any rewrites are required, which could cause issues for the show’s creators.

Based on George R.R. Martin’s “Game of Thrones” prequel, “House of the Dragon” stars a whole host of new and returning cast members, including Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, and Eve Best. The second season is currently being filmed at Warner Bros.’ Leavesden Studios and is set to include council meetings, battles, and of course, dragons.
