House of the Dragon set to premiere on OSN+ on June 17; Egypt’s Pyramid of Djoser lights up in celebration!

The ancient Pyramid of Djoser was illuminated with a spectacular light installation to celebrate the premiere of House of the Dragon Season 2, an eight-episode HBO Original drama series exclusively available on OSN+ across the MENA region starting June 17, 2024.

Brought to life by technical adviser Rupert Morse, whose work includes large-scale projects like Mission Impossible 6, the stunning display featured a dramatic face-off between Queen Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke) and Queen Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) above the Pyramid of Djoser, intriguing audiences and heralding the return of one of television’s most anticipated series.

To further build excitement for the upcoming season, OSN+ hosted an exclusive regional screening of the first episode of the second season of House of the Dragon on June 12, 2024, at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray hotel where an exact replica of the Iron Throne was unveiled. Continuing the evening’s grandeur, Steve Toussaint, who portrays Lord Corlys Velaryon in the series, made a special appearance, joining host Faris Al Raqqad for a lively discussion where he shared insights about the upcoming season’s key developments and surprised guests with a reveal of the Pyramid installation, leaving them eager for more.

Elie Habib, CEO of OSN+ & Anghami: “We were thrilled to bring House of the Dragon Season 2 to our audience with such a grand celebration. The light installation above the Pyramid of Djoser was a testament to our commitment to delivering unforgettable entertainment experiences. We look forward to continuing this journey with our subscribers.”

House of the Dragon continues the epic saga that began with the Season 1 finale, diving deeper into the Dance of the Dragons. This civil war, which pitted Daemon against Aemond, Erryk against Arryk, and Aegon against Aegon, sees the Seven Kingdoms torn apart by the question of rightful succession. Queen Alicent Hightower leads Team Green, while Queen Rhaenyra, determined to reclaim her birthright by Fire and Blood, heads Team Black.

Set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon narrates the turbulent history of House Targaryen. Based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” the series promises a gripping narrative and breathtaking visuals, ensuring a thrilling experience for viewers.
