Game of Thrones: Renewed For Seasons 5 AND 6!

at . Comments

All men must die ... but all the men and women behind HBO's blockbuster hit Game of Thrones must also continue their epic work through at least 2016.

The premium cable network has just announced the renewal of its flagship series for two more seasons, ensuring a Season 5 and Season 6 of the fantasy drama.

A Focused Dany

Showrunners/executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss recently signed a contract that will keep them at the helm through the sixth season as well.

It's not exactly a surprising move, considering that a series-high 6.6 million viewers watched last Sunday night's Game of Thrones Season 4 premiere.

Just how high is that number? "Two Swords" became the network’s most watched episode since The Sopranos' 2007 finale, which drew 11.9 million viewers).

Sunday's season premiere also broke online piracy records, according to several measures, and temporarily crashed the streaming service HBO Go.

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
