TV shows with many episodes are called series. If a series is popular, it might continue for years.

Many viewers are fans of one or more series. They watch every episode, sometimes many times. Some of them even write fan-fiction, continuing or adding to episodes using their imagination.

Some die-hard fans will watch many episodes of a show in a row. They might watch 8 hours of Game of Thrones in one sitting. This is called binge-watching.

Fans of TV series hate spoilers. A spoiler is information about what will happen next. Many people think that spoilers “spoil” or ruin the experience of watching a show.

Hackers sometimes try to blackmail studios by threatening to release spoilers unless the studio pays them money. Hackers did this with Game of Thrones.

Fans will often dress up like their favorite characters for Halloween.
