It is known: HBO’s Game of Thrones will continue its epic tale into a fourth season.
The network just renewed the show for 10 episodes to premiere next year.
The announcement was expected. Thrones returned to series-high ratings on Sunday night and stands as the network’s biggest current moneymaker. The show’s annual production cost (north of $55 million per season) is offset by strong international and DVD sales. If ratings trends for Thrones and HBO’s top-rated True Blood continue this year, Thrones could replace the vampire drama as the network’s most-popular show.
