Considering the huge audience that tuned in for the first episode of season 4, it’s clear that the series is continuously gathering audiences all over the world.

Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming, had the following to say: “Game of Thrones is a phenomenon like no other. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, along with their talented collaborators, continue to surpass themselves, and we look forward to more of their dazzling storytelling.”

6.6 million U.S. viewers tuned in to watch the fourth season’s first episode, resulting in the most watched Game of Thrones episode to date.
