HBO’s “House of the Dragon” season finale leaked online Friday ahead of its Sunday night release. In a statement, HBO said the finale was posted to illegal torrent sites, and “appears to have originated from a distribution partner in the EMEA region,” referencing Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The network noted that it is “aggressively monitoring and pulling these copies from the internet.” HBO ended its statement by saying: “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…exclusively in 4K”.

The “House of the Dragon” bosses are promising the second season will deliver more of the thrills and spills familiar to the millions of Thrones fans tuning in, along with more humor along the lines of the original series. Dragon showrunner Ryan Condal said that producers deliberately slowed down the narrative for the first season, to ensure viewers were invested in the new characters. Quote: “We will get to the spectacle. But you have to understand these people’s complexities before they’re thrown into war.” Condal promises there will be more lighthearted moments too in the next season, when the writers introduce “natural pathways into moments of levity” in the drama.
