An HBO executive said the company wants the hit show to rule the network for at least two more seasons after this year.By Ben Lawson | January 8, 2016
HBO is already planning on renewing "Game of Thrones" for two more seasons before the sixth season even airs.
HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said the network is nearing a deal but doesn't have anything in writing yet.
The decision to renew is a no-brainer. The amount of chatter the show generates is likely a huge boon to HBO's brand as whole, not to mention the monster ratings and award show wins and nominations. What's unclear is when the show will go off the air.
