In an interview with The Timesone of the showrunners of “House of the Dragon”, Ryan Condal, announced that season 2 tI would have a much faster pacebecause this first installment had to be slower to concentrate on the construction of characters and their connection with the audience.
“The second season will have the rhythm that people expect from half of ‘Game of Thrones’, but it will have been earned and the viewers will feel the tragedies, because we put in the work”, assured Condal.
In addition, he confessed that they will try to incorporate more elements of humor that have been necessary for not having characters like Tyrion Lannister in this series. Probably the main driver will be the character Matt Smith.
