Game of Thrones renewed for season three! The hit fantasy series, which is based on George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire books, pulled a record-braking 3.9 million viewers for the Game of Thrones season two premiere last week. HBO announced Tuesday the network would be ordering up at least 10 more episodes of the series for another season. Now that is some seriously awesome Game of Thrones news for fans!
The Game of Thrones season one premiere raked in 2.2 million viewers way back in April 2011, which was a strong beginning for any HBO series. Since then, the show has continued to gather a horde of fans and become a strong favorite of critics as well.
