House of Dragon season finale premiered on Sunday night with four airings on HBO's cable channel and streamed throughout the night on HBO Max with a total of 9.3 million viewers according to Warner Bros. This was HBO's most watched season finale since its predecessor series, Game of Thrones, series finale with 19.3 million viewers. This was the first season of the show, which is a prequel to HBO's global sensation Game of Thrones, which ended back in 2019.
The show was met with mixed reviews when it aired, due to the fact that people were not sure if it could level up to Game of Thrones, but quickly proved to be able to stand on its own, capturing the attention of millions of viewers worldwide. The season finale ended with a brutal ending that leaves millions of viewers waiting eagerly for season 2, which has already been confirmed by showrunner, Ryan Condal. Condal told Variety that season 2 will begin shooting in early 2023 with the release date still to be determined.
All we can do now is eagerly wait for a highly anticipated season 2. In the meantime, all the episodes of House of Dragon and Game of Thrones are available to watch on HBO Max.
