For the fifth year in a row, "Game of Thrones" reigned as the most downloaded show through BitTorrent.

The epic drama was joined on the list of most-pirated shows by its new HBO sibling, "Westworld," which placed at number three. It's quite an achievement for a freshman show to vault so far up the list. In second place, again, was zombie thriller "The Walking Dead."

The highest number of active torrents at one time was 350,000, just after the season finale of "Game of Thrones." That isn't a record, indicating piracy did not see growth this year.

The rest of the top 10 list includes "The Flash," "Arrow," "The Big Bang Theory," "Vikings," "Lucifer," "Suits," and "The Grand Tour." The last title was reported as being the most downloaded show in history, but that was a misunderstanding on the part of a piracy monitoring firm.
