'Game of Thrones' Snags Season Three
Game of Thrones came back in a big way this month -- starting off with two sensational, sweeping episodes. The premiere even magically managed to feature every fan favorite and re-integrate us into that wonderful world while seamlessly introducing new faces.
And fans turned out in record numbers as the premiere drew an astounding 3.86 million viewers while Sunday's second installment dropped less than three percent! .
To mark the achievement, HBO has just announced that Game of Thrones will be back for a third season!
"Series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss raised our expectations for the second season -- and then surpassed them," HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said. "We are thrilled by all the viewer and media support we’ve received for the series, and can't wait to see what Dan and David have in store for next season."
