'House of the Dragon' Season 2 Premiere Draws 7.8 Million Viewers, Marks Max's Biggest Streaming Day

Despite a 20 percent drop in viewership compared to its Season 1 debut, 'House of the Dragon' season 2's premiere was a success for Max, bringing in its highest streaming day overall.

AceShowbiz - Season 2 of "House of the Dragon" has taken fans on a thrilling ride of suspense and family drama. According to Variety, the premiere episode garnered 7.8 million viewers globally, marking Max's most-watched day in history.

While the season 2 premiere saw a dip of 22% from its predecessor, which debuted on HBO Max, the shift to Max as a standalone platform has contributed to the decrease. In 2022, the House of the Dragon series premiere on HBO Max attracted 10 million viewers across platforms.

Despite the decline in viewership, Max celebrated a successful streaming day. It also became Warner Bros. Discovery's biggest season 2 streaming premiere in Europe, where Max recently launched. As the show progresses, with its intense dragon war plot, it remains to be seen if viewership will continue to grow.

Warner Bros. Discovery also announced the start of production for another "Game of Thrones" prequel series, "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms", in Belfast, Ireland. Based on George R.R. Martin's novella The Hedge Knight, this series will follow two heroes in Westeros during the Targaryen dynasty. The cast includes Peter Claffey, Dexter Sol Ansell, Finn Bennett, Bertie Carvel, Tanzyn Crawford, Daniel Ings and Sam Spruell.
