Because what better time than a winter storm for ominous Game of Thrones news? That dreadful day has finally arrived, as HBO confirms the eighth and final season will sit out 2018 altogether, finishing its adapted Song of Ice and Fire in 2019.
If Game of Thrones skipping 2018 has one advantage, it’s that next year will finally bring us a new king of TorrentFreak’s most-pirated TV. It totally won 2017, of course, but a few new additions like Rick and Morty or demotions for Arrow might make this a very different list going for…
Game of Thrones producers knew by Season 7 that filming details would inevitably leak out; to which they posed that certain scenes were staged for exactly that purpose. Few were necessarily fooled, but Season 8 may go the extra mile to film several endings to the Song of Ice and Fire saga.
We’re never surprised to see Game of Thrones topping the annual list of most-pirated series, but Season 7 might be a dragon of a different color. A new report suggests leaked episodes only helped the show’s piracy tally, ranking in with over a billion downloads.
