HBO Gives ‘Game of Thrones’ a Third Season

With record breaking ratings numbers for the second season premiere, it was only a matter of time before HBO gave the green light for a third season of Game of Thrones. That time, much like Winter itself, has come.

That’s right, today HBO announced Game of Thrones will get a third season on the network. Obviously, as huge fans of the series, we’re very excited about this.

“Series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss raised our expectations for the second season – and then surpassed them,” said HBO’s programming president Michael Lombardo.

Gotta say he’s right. The second season is off to a great, albiet mostly action-free, start. Sure, we know lots of stuff is coming soon and we can expect many battles and action along the way. Still, would be nice to get some of that started sooner rather than later.

Although, it’s not like we’re going to stop watching or anything. Speaking of watching, Game of Thrones airs Sunday nights at 9 on HBO. But you already knew that, right?
