To no surprise, HBO has no immediate plans to end Game of Thrones. At the TCA summer press tour, Michael Lombardo (HBO’s president of programming) said, “It can go on as long as there are stories to tell.”
HBO CEO Richard Plepler joked, “Our line to George [R.R. Martin is] to keep writing.”
Game of Thrones is currently HBO’s most successful series. While their other big show, True Blood, has been seeing some viewership declines year-over-year, Game of Thrones’ audience continues to grow.
