HBO’s “Game of Thrones” can add another achievement to its list.
An all-time high of 12.1 million viewers tuned in Sunday to watch the finale of the seventh season of the epic fantasy drama, according to Nielsen. An additional 4 million caught the episode on streaming channels.
The seven-episode second-to-last season began with 10.1 million viewers, while episode 5 drew 10.7 million, their previous record.
This season “Game of Thrones” has regularly ranked as the second-most-viewed series each week among all programs, both cable and broadcast. Its eighth and final season was slated to air next year but The Hollywood Reporter said the series may not run until 2019 due to production.
