Game of Thrones Showrunners Sign on Through Season 6

by at . Comments

Just a little over a week before the Game of Thrones Season 4 premiere, HBO has made it pretty clear that the epic drama won't be going anywhere for awhile.

Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have signed on to lead the series for at least two seasons beyond this one, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Benioff and Weiss originated the project and have generally been praised for sticking close to George R.R. Martin’s source material.

HBO has not yet picked Game of Thrones up beyond Season 4, but this is premium cable’s most-watched program; it can write its own ticket for as long as it wants.

Benioff and Weiss recently said, however, that it will likely conclude after seven seasons.
