Popverse's top stories of the day


At long last, dragons have returned to Westeros and the battle for the Iron Throne is underway. As the Dance of the Dragons truly begins, each member of House Targaryen must choose a side. We’re all waiting for the next episode of House of the Dragon season two to arrive and return us to the world of Game of Thrones.

New episodes of House of the Dragon air on HBO on Sundays at 9 pm EST and PST. For streaming fans, House of the Dragon airs on Max at the same time as the East Coast broadcast, meaning that West Coast viewers can see it a few hours earlier than waiting for it to air on HBO. Unlike season one, House of the Dragon season two will have eight episodes total instead of ten, so they’re going to have to cram a lot of brutal civil war into even less time.

The next episode of House of the Dragon season two will air:

  • House of the Dragon season two episode 5 – Sunday July 14 at 9 pm EST / PST on HBO and 9 pm EST / 6 pm PST on Max

UK fans will have to wait until the early hours of Monday morning to see the next episode of House of the Dragon season two. It airs at 2 am Monday mornings on Sky Atlantic.

Set several hundred years before the events of Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon follows the fractious noble houses of the Seven Kingdoms as the Targaryens, who have ruled the land for generations, fall into civil war. Of course, when a house that was built on the power of dragons goes to war with each other, lots of things get burned.

House of the Dragon season two is currently airing, with new episodes landing on Max and HBO on Sunday evenings.


Thanks to HBO, Popverse is back in the Westeros spirit, and we've got more Game of Thrones articles than could fit on a spiky chair. We'll tell you how to watch through the Game of Thrones/House of the Dragon saga in order, or if you're so inclined, read through it. We've dug through and exhumed the biggest differences between the two HBO shows set in Westeros, and gotten an inside look at them from House of the Dragon's prop designers. We've covered the history of Westeros's greatest houses & families, talked you through every single dragon in House of the Dragon so far, and peered into the future regarding A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, HBO's upcoming GoT spinoff, and we've got much, much more on the way.
