The House of the Dragon premiere release is near.
After more than three years without any Westeros stories, fans will return to the world created by George R.R. Martin in House of the Dragon. The upcoming Game of Thrones spin-off series will mix drama, battles, and dragons in the same entertaining way that kept millions of people glued to their screens for years.
When to Watch the House of the Dragon Premiere
The House of the Dragon premiere will air on HBO and HBO Max at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on Sunday, Aug. 21. The series consists of ten episodes which will air weekly. House of the Dragon is based on Martin’s Fire & Blood and follows the rise and the downfall of the Targaryens, the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria. It will take place 300 years before the events of the award-winning series adaptation of Game of Thrones which aired its final episode in May 2019. There is much anticipation for the new HBO project considering that Game of Thrones was one of the most popular TV series ever, breaking all sorts of records in terms of viewership.
