Game of Thrones: Renewed For Season 3!

at . Comments

With the second season off to an impressive start in the ratings, HBO has given the early green light to a third season of Game of Thrones, which will air next year.

“Series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss raised our expectations for the second season - and then surpassed them,” said HBO boss Michael Lombardo, announcing the Season 3 pickup of the epic fantasy.

“We are absolutely thrilled by all the viewer and media support we’ve received for the series, and cannot wait to see what Dan and David have in store for next season.”

The Game of Thrones season premiere drew a record 3.9 million viewers, while this past Sunday's second episode, "The Night Lands," barely lost any of that audience, clocking in at 3.8 million.

Game of Thrones Quotes

Tyrion: Let me give you some advice bastard. Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.
Jon: What the hell do you know about being a bastard?
Tyrion: All dwarfs are bastards in their father's eyes.

I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you are safe and happy, and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. And you will know the debt is paid.

Tyrion Lannister
