HBO’s hit fantasy drama series, Game of Thrones, is once again the pirated TV show in the world.

The reigning king, which has taken the top slot since 2012, was followed by The Walking Dead and The Big Bang Theory in the number two and three slots respectively, reported Aceshowbiz.

The fifth season finale of the medieval drama was illegally downloaded 14.4 million times, according to the piracy tracking site TorrentFreak. What is incredible is that it is downloaded twice as many times as The Walking Dead which is only one position down.

As many as three superhero shows like The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl have also made it to the top 10 list. (The CW)

The channel had actually taken actions to reduce piracy of the show this year by airing episodes of season five on the same date worldwide, however, not much difference could be registered.

The popular TV show returns in late April/early May in 2016 with season 6.
