HBO Renews 'Game of Thrones' For A Third Season
Fans of Game of Thrones, rejoice. HBO just tweeted the happy news that the show has been renewed for a third season.
We're just two episodes into the second season of the show, which is based on George R.R. Martin's epic A Song of Ice and Fire books. The renewal doesn't come as a huge surprise, considering they're posting some huge numbers. According to the Hollywood Reporter:
Last week's record 3.9 million viewers were followed by 3.8 million viewers for last night's 9 p.m. airing of the second episode, a more than 97 percent retention rate.
That's pretty impressive.
When Game of Thrones started, I was lukewarm on it. There were a ton of characters and nearly no back story, so it felt like a companion piece for the people who had read the books, and not it's own entity. Now I'm hooked.
What does everyone else think? Are you watching? Do you dig it? Are you happy the show will continue into the foreseeable future?
