“House of the Dragon Season 2 Episode 4 Draws 8.1 Million Viewers, Setting New Season High”

The latest episode of the hit HBO series “House of the Dragon” has set a new viewership record, drawing in 8.1 million viewers in the U.S. on Sunday night. This marks a high for the show this season, narrowly beating out the season premiere.

According to Warner Bros. Discovery, more than 8 million viewers tuned in across the HBO cable channel and the Max streaming service, up from the season premiere in June which had 7.8 million viewers. However, the June premiere was down about 22% from the series’ premiere in 2022, which had almost 10 million viewers and was the largest series launch on Max at the time.

Warner Bros. also revealed that the season’s premiere episode is now approaching 25 million viewers total after the week of July 1-7, making it the show’s best week on Max since the premiere.

Fans can look forward to more from the series as “House of the Dragon” was renewed for a third season by Max on June 13, ahead of the second season’s launch. The show, based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” takes place 200 years before “Game of Thrones” and focuses on the relationship between Rhaenyra Targaryen and King Aegon II Targaryen.

Sunday’s episode titled “The Red Dragon and the Gold” featured a thrilling dragon battle scene for a small castle, Rook’s Rest, according to Variety.

With the series gaining momentum and setting new records, fans can’t wait to see what the next episodes have in store.
