There’s certainly no danger of this HBO series being cancelled. Game of Thrones has already been renewed through season six and it’s the cable channel’s most popular series. Last season’s ratings were up by about 40%. Will the numbers continue to soar or will they slip? Stay tuned.
Based on the best-selling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, Thrones is an epic story of treachery and nobility in a savage world — a place where summers and winters can last for years and the lust for power is eternal.
