Don't you Know that Nearly 10 million people tuned in to the premiere of House of the Dragon, the Games of Thrones prequel series, on Sunday night, making it the biggest audience for any new original HBO series ever.
The most interesting part is that even though many fans were disappointed to see the end of the Game of Thrones series, they still took to social media to post about the new series. On Sunday, House of the Dragon trended for 14 hours on Twitter and was No. 1 on Google Trends, HBO said in a news release. And of course, more people will be catching the show through HBO Max in the coming days.
House of the Dragon had a lot to prove as each episode cost between $15 million and $20 million according to CNBC. And with HBO Max gearing up to integrate shows and movies from its streaming platform with Discovery+ next summer, there's a lot riding on the show's success. Game of Thrones ordered House of the Dragon to series in May 2019, months after Finaprov, and writing began in early 2020.
House of the Dragon takes place 200 years before Game of Thrones did and follows the beginning of the end of House Targaryen. It will show what led up to the Targaryen war of succession, also known as the Dance of the Dragons, events that were hinted at in Game of Thrones as characters discussed their world's history.
"It was wonderful to see millions of Game of Thrones fans return to Westeros with us last night," Casey Bloys, chief content officer for HBO and HBO Max, said in a news release. House of the Dragon is an incredibly talented cast and crew who have poured their heart and soul into the production, and we are delighted with the positive response from audiences. We look forward to sharing with viewers what [George RR Martin and showrunners Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik] have in store for them this season.
