The Game of Thrones TV show season 5 has already left loads of mysterious puzzle to solve and there are only a few months for the season 6 to go live on HBO. The series surfaced leaving behind the excitement that the season five final episode topped the most downloaded TV-shows of the year.

The single episode alone tracked an estimated of 14.4 million pirated downloads across the globe. TorrentFreak, the Piracy tracking website has compiled a list of most downloaded TV shows of the year, in which the Game of Thrones, Season five final episode was ranked first in the list followed by AMC’s The Walking Dead and CBS’ The Big Bang Theory.

Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin’s series of fantasy novels

Also, the epic fantasy series was the most pirated show in 2014, 2013, and 2012. In 2011, it finished in the second spot, behind Dexter.

It might not be good news for HBO, and it shows the series has reached a much wider audience. HBO aired all the episodes of season five 5 on the same date worldwide, and the season 5 has recorded the highest number of viewers than any other seasons in the series.

The Game of Thrones Season 6 will be aired on HBO in April.
