The ‘House of the Dragon’ season finale has arrived early — and not on HBO’s terms.
On Wednesday, the series’ producers announced that the series’ seventh season would be its final run. According to The Wrap, the final four episodes will air on HBO Canada.
The “House of the Dragon” finale follows the story of the House of Greed, a syndicated series that ran on Canadian TV networks from 1992 to 1996.
From the time it debuted, the show attracted a cult following, but it became one of the biggest television disappointments of the 1990s.
The show was cancelled, in part, due to a ratings slump, but also because it never took viewers anywhere. While many television series have used “guest” stars, the show was unique in that it was the first to be cancelled after its ninth season. The series ran for about 10 years (or “six seasons”), ending in 1996 — exactly 20 years ago today.
The ‘House of the Dragon’ finale airs on HBO Canada on August 3 at 7 p.m. ET and August 5 at 10 p.m. ET.
When will there be a follow-up?
There’s no sign of any additional episodes for the “House of the Dragon” season finale, which was originally slated to be part of the “House of the Dragon” season.
“Although ‘House of the Dragon’ has been out of production for quite a while, the creators and producers are still very interested in seeing what we could do with the remaining episodes. We have no doubt that we could come up with a great series that was a combination of The Good Wife, Dexter and House of Cards,” producer Mark Stern said in a statement.
“It didn’t need another season, but if we didn’t do a final season, fans would lose something of a gift that was given to them in their time-span,” he added.
The final three episodes of “House of the Dragon” season finale will air on HBO Canada beginning August 3 at 7 p.m. ET.
