HBO looks beyond 'Game of Thrones,' maybe back to a prequel

The premiere of the final season of "Game of Thrones" drew 8.1 percent more viewers than last season's debut, an encouraging sign as HBO winds down its most popular show and prepares for the next chapter of the streaming era.

The season premiere - one of the most anticipated television events in history - aired at 9 p.m. EST last night for millions of Game of Thrones fans across the USA (and indeed, over here, for those of us willing to stay up until 2am). The final season premieres on Sunday.

HBO was open from the get-go that this episode was going to have a lot of callbacks and references to the Season 1 pilot, even teasing some of them in the trailer for the new season. This almost 18-minute video goes to great lengths to show how the final season of the epic, award-winning drama came together, highlighting the talented cast and crew that put in grueling hours to make it all possible. The 17.4 million beats the previous series high that came in the Season 7 finale, which hit 16.9 million viewers. The seventh season averaged 32.8 million viewers per episode thanks to post-live bumps. Yesterday accounts for largest night of streaming activity ever for HBO. Whatever the reason, the linear viewership of 11.8 million beats the linear viewership for the Season 7 premiere, which hit only 10.1 million. Season 8 is sure to burn that record right up.

"There was a bit where Jon nearly falls off the dragon - swings round really violent like this - and my right ball got trapped, and I didn't have time to say stop", Harington said in a behind-the-scenes video.
