It's official: The Walking Dead and Stranger Things top the list of 'most in-demand TV shows in the world'.

"But what about HBO's bloody brilliant Game of Thrones?" we hear you scream. Well, first of all, the numbers crunched cover just last year and Thrones didn't air any new episodes at all during 2018.

Global TV analytics firm, Parrot Analytics, confirmed the statistics during this week's NATPE Miami International content market and conference (via Deadline).

AMC's flesh-chewing drama claimed the prize for 'most in-demand TV series in the world', whilst the Netflix sci-fi show won 'most in-demand digital original series in the world'.

Cast members Josh McDermitt (Eugene) and Pollyanna McIntosh (Jadis/Anne), plus producer Denise Huth, were in attendance to accept the award for The Walking Dead.

The winners were determined through a system that measures just how much a series is wanted on all platforms in more than 100 different markets across the globe.

Meanwhile, Stranger Things co-creator Ross Duffer has teased their "grossest" season yet, which will premiere on Netflix this summer.

"While it's our most fun season, it also turns out to be our grossest season. We're inspired by John Carpenter's The Thing. We're inspired by Cronenberg.

"We have a little bit of a George Romero vibe in there as well. There are horror movies and horror masters that we haven't really paid tribute to as much in previous seasons that we are definitely going to get into this season."

The Walking Dead is back on Sunday, February 10 on AMC in the US and most likely on Monday, February 11 on FOX in the UK. You can also catch up on the show via NOW TV. Stranger Things is available to stream on Netflix and will return with season 3 on July 4, 2019.
