AMC's The Walking Dead has beat HBO's Game of Thrones for the auspicious title of most-torrented TV show of 2018, according to TorrentFreak. Tabulating data from public BitTorrent trackers and the DHT network, the torrent news site reports five of the top 10 shows in this list were based on comic books.
Game of Thrones had been the top torrented show in this annual list for the past six years, however due to the show having no new episodes in 2018 it wasn't eligible for consideration.
From 2014 to 2017, The Walking Dead had been in second place behind Game of Thrones.
TorrentFreak's 2018 list is as follows: The Walking Dead, The Flash, The Big Bang Theory, Vikings, Titans, Arrow, Supernatural, Westworld, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and Suits.
Noteworthy is the fact that none of Marvel's various shows from ABC, Netflix, Hulu, or Freeform charted on this list.
