In news that surprises no one, HBO has announced just two days after its season 4 premiere, that it will be renewing Game of Thrones for both a fifth and a sixth season.
GoT fans are surely flying high this week; after record breaking numbers for Sunday night’s premiere, trailing only The Sopranos series finale for most viewers of an HBO program + news of two more seasons to come? 6.6 million tuned in for the first airing of the episode, followed by 1.6 million for its repeat airing–totaling 8.2 million for the two.
The fandom is only going to get more powerful. Should we be afraid? Clearly.
