I'm happy to report that HBO has announced that they will be developing two more seasons of Game of Thrones. That will take us through season six, and then I'm sure the cable network will renew it for a couple more seasons.
HBO Programming president Michael Lombardo made the announcement, saying,
“Game of Thrones is a phenomenon like no other, [Series creators] David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, along with their talented collaborators, continue to surpass themselves, and we look forward to more of their dazzling storytelling.”
The premiere of season four drew in HBO's biggest audience numbers since The Sopranos in 2007. I'm sure the audience will just continue to grow, and the series itself is sure to get better and better as it moves forward. This is such a satisfying and entertaining series to watch, and I hope HBO doesn't cancel it until they've told the whole story.
