It is known: HBO’s Game of Thrones will continue its epic tale into a fourth season.
The network just greenlit the show for another batch of episodes to premiere next year.
The announcement was expected. Thrones returned to series-high ratings on Sunday night and stands as the network’s biggest current moneymaker.
Creative details for the fourth season have not been announced, but Thrones is expected to primarily use material from back half of the lengthy third book in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire saga, A Storm of Swords, as well as pull in content from other novels in the series.
Not surprising, but yay!
