Fans have had mixed reactions to the final season of Game of Thrones, which means a spinoff series a few years later is always risky. It appears that risk is paying off for HBO with five episodes, with “House of the Dragon” apparently averaging nearly 30 million viewers per episode.
That’s according to type This shows that the Game of Thrones prequels continue to grow and develop with each episode. With its fifth episode airing last Sunday, the show now averages 29 million viewers per episode. That speaks to the people who watched it when it aired on HBO, and everyone who watched it from streaming platforms like HBO Max.
That’s why the number of people watching “House of the Dragon” is said to have risen sharply since the first episode. It was revealed shortly after its premiere that 10 million people tuned in to the first episode of “House of the Dragon,” making it the most-watched first season premiere ever on HBO. Since then, more and more people have been viewing it on various platforms, so much so that over 30 million people have now watched the first episode.
With the current five-episode average of 29 million viewers, this suggests that the show’s retention rate is pretty good. That’s not surprising considering how good the show has been so far. If you’re not one of the tens of millions, there are no major spoilers here, but episode six will be the next big test for House of the Dragon. The show is about to take a leap over the next few years, which means some of its cast members will be replaced by actors who play characters from older versions.
While the two shows are very different, since they’re both fantasy prequels that aired at the same time, it’s hard not to compare “House of the Dragon” to “Ring of Thrones.” Amazon claims the latter’s premiere was watched by 25 million people. It will be interesting to see if it hits the same high average as House of Dragons.
