Well, Duh! GAME OF THRONES is renewed for season 5 and 6

No massive surprise, but I guess it's good to have confirmation. With Sunday nights season 4 premiere episode, Two Swords, being watched by somewhere in the region of 500 billion people (or thereabouts), it was really a no-brainer for HBO to renew Game Of Thrones. In fact they've given the show a double order for both seasons 5 and 6.

The news does actually put my mind at rest, I've always worried that somehow people might stop watching and the show might get cancelled before Dany got a sniff of Westeros - book people, don't tell me either way, fingers in ears la,la,la I'm not listening - I couldn't take that!

But will we get that movie to finish the story?

Here's the official press release...
LOS ANGELES, April 8, 2014 – HBO has renewed GAME OF THRONES for a fifth and sixth season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming.
