HBO Wants More “Thrones”
Season two of Game of Thrones won’t air until early next year, but there are already rumblings that HBO wants more of the hit series.
MTV reports the cable outlet is considering a move to renew the series for a third and fourth season in the coming days. The seasons would be filmed back-to-back though they wouldn’t begin airing until 2013.
Season two will reportedly cover the events of A Clash of Kings and seasons three and four would adapt A Storm of Swords. Nothing official yet, but we’ll keep our ears and eyes peeled for updates.
