HBO renews 'Game of Thrones' for two more seasons after record-breaking Season 4 debut

By Gina DiFalco,

No surprise here, but HBO has renewed their hit show Game of Thrones for two more seasons. The fourth season of the show made its debut this past Sunday, breaking ratings records.

The series, based on the books by author George R.R. Martin called A Song of Ice and Fire, drew in about 6.6 million viewers on Sunday night.

According to LA Times, GoT’s president of HBO programming, Michael Lombardo, referred to the show as “a phenomenon like no other.”

In fact, so many viewers were trying to watch the Season 4 premiere on HBO Go that the site actually crashed. The season premiere was the most watched program for the network since the season finale of The Sopranos back in 2007.

Stars of Game of Thrones include Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Charles Dance and Natalie Dormer, who will help portray the show’s "dazzling storytelling,” as the release outlined.

Martin’s sixth and seventh installments of the book series; The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring, are still being written.
