After Sunday’s record-breaking season three premiere, HBO has quickly decided to renew Game of Thrones for a fourth season, giving the cast and crew ample time to continue adapting George R.R. Martin’s novels for the small screen.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the network did not give any creative details, but it’s expected that season four will continue covering material in A Storm Of Shadows, the third part of the A Song of Ice and Fire series.
GoT’s third season premiered to 4.4 million viewers, a record for the series. That was a 13 percent jump from the show’s season two premiere and more than the 4.2 million who tuned in to see the season two finale.
TorrentFreak also reported that the episode set piracy records. OpenBitTorrent’s stats showed that a single torrent of the episode was being shared by 163,088 people just hours after it aired. GoT continues to be one of the most pirated shows in history, as HBO requires you to be a cable subscriber to watch it on HBO GO.
