House of the Dragon has premiered on HBO and HBO Max. Of course, you want to add it to your Game of Thrones collection, but when will that be possible? Will House of the Dragon even come to DVD and Blu-ray?
Now that House of the Dragon has premiered, all eyes are on when it will come to DVD and Blu-ray. There is some great news in the fact that the Game of Thrones prequel should get a DVD release date. While it does air on HBO Max, it’s a HBO show and HBO shows still head to DVD and Blu-ray.
It takes a while for the release to happen. We’ll need to wait until all 10 episodes of the season have aired. Here’s what we can work out for now.
House of the Dragon DVD release date predictions
The House of Dragon Season 1 finale will air on Oct. 23. This is an important date to keep in mind. It affects when the DVD release date is set to be.
If we look at Game of Thrones, we saw an almost seven-month wait for the DVD release of Season 8. It only took four months for Season 7 to arrive. The DVD release dates for both seasons were timed with Christmas releases.
That could be something HBO does with House of the Dragon. However, this is unlikely considering it would mean less than two months from the season finale to the DVD release. We’re probably looking more at something like February 2023. This matches the four-month wait The Time Traveler’s Wife Season 1 has taken from the season finale to the DVD release date.
At least we know that there’s a good chance of a DVD release, and there should be bonus features. Until then, you can always buy Fire & Blood to see the sort of storyline we’ll get throughout the 10 episodes.
House of the Dragon airs Sundays on HBO and HBO Max.
