House Of The Dragon Season 1 Finale Leaks Online, So Beware Of Spoilers

Somehow, the Season 1 finale made its way onto the internet more than two days before it's due to air.


The House of the Dragon Season 1 finale has seemingly leaked online, two days before it's scheduled to premiere this Sunday, October 23. People on social media have reported that the episode is floating out there on the internet, while IGN has confirmed the leak.

Just how the finale leaked online is unknown, but in the increasingly digital and online world we live in, these things have a way of happening. Given the leak, fans hoping to go into Sunday's finale without being spoiled may need to be extra mindful of spoilers. Twitter enables users to mute certain words and phrases, and that might be a good idea to try heading into this weekend.

Now Playing: House Of The Dragon's Cast Breaks Down How Targaryens Differ From Game Of Thrones

HBO has released a statement regarding the leak, via Variety, calling it "disappointing."

“We are aware that the tenth episode of ‘House of the Dragon’ has been posted on illegal torrent sites. It appears to have originated from a distribution partner in the EMEA region,” the full statement reads. “HBO is aggressively monitoring and pulling these copies from the internet. We’re disappointed that this unlawful action has disrupted the viewing experience for loyal fans of the show, who will get to see a pristine version of the episode when it premieres Sunday on HBO and HBO Max, where it will stream exclusively in 4K.”

Barring any official schedule changes from HBO, the House of the Dragon Season 1 finale will air on HBO starting at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET on Sunday, October 23. The finale promises a lot of drama and intrigue as the battle for the Iron Throne reaches a tipping point.

House of the Dragon has already been renewed for a second season, but HBO hasn't announced when it'll be released or any new cast members or storylines. Author George R.R. Martin has said he believes House of the Dragon needs four full seasons to tell its story properly.

This weekend's House of the Dragon finale follows the Season 1 finale of another high-profile fantasy drama, Amazon's The Rings of Power, which wrapped up its first season on October 14.
