Game of Thrones series finale sets record with 19.3 million viewers. The series has broken HBO’s record.
The fantasy drama ‘Game of Thrones’ has finally ended after eight seasons. The last episode titled ‘The Iron Throne’ has broken not only the record for the most watched GOT episode. It has also broken the record for HBO’s most-watched episode.
The Season four premiere of The Sopranos was the previous record holder. Back in 2002, it had more than 13.4 viewers. HBO series Barry has also reached new highs with 2.7 million views.
The ending of Game of Thrones disappointed a lot of fans and there was even a petition to remake season eight with ‘better writers.’ More than a million people signed the petition.
The show ended with Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright), the Three-eyed Raven becoming King and Tyrion Lannister became his Hand, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was sent back to the Wall after he killed Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) became Queen in the North, and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) went to the West of Westeros for an adventure.
Game of Thrones has a huge fan following and for that reason, Bark.com has offered counseling services for the fans after the series finale. Their front page reads, “Are you distraught by the thought of Game of Thrones ending? We’ve launched a specialized Game of Thrones counseling service to help bereft fans seek support and get the help they need through this tough time.”
The series debuted back in 2011 and is based on the series by George R.R Martin, ‘A Song of Ice and Fire.’
