I was texting with someone and we were talking about Game of Thrones. I said I just finished watching it and she asked "Are you caught up to the show?" I am not native speaker so I couldn't figure out what she meant. Can anyone help me?

She most likely meant
"Have you caught up with the show?"
Which is asking if you have finished watching all the episodes up to date.
The use of "caught up" (See def B2) means:
Catch up: to learn or discuss the latest news.
"Are you caught up to the show?" is another way of saying "Have you watched the most recent episode?" or "Have you seen all the previous episodes?".
For instance, if I were going to talk to someone about the most recent episode, first I'd ask them if they were "caught up", as in, have they caught up to where the show is now.
