It’s been officially confirmed on the HBO fantasy show’s official Facebook page that a fifth and sixth series will be made.
"Send a raven and spread the word across the realm."
In other words: “Good news, that, innit?”
The fourth series of the show began over the weekend, and for the first time ever it was broadcast simultaneously in the US and the UK, with over half a million die-hard UK fans staying up till 2am to catch the season premiere on Sky Atlantic.
For those who couldn’t stay awake that long (no shame in that, we’ve usually had our cocoa and tucked ourselves in by 9.30…) it was repeated the following night at a more sociable hour.
Creators of the TV series - based on the popular novels by George R.R. Martin - told Entertainment Weekly last month that the team are currently planning to make seven seasons of 'Game Of Thrones'.
“Seven gods, seven kingdoms, seven seasons. It feels right to us.”
‘Game Of Thrones’ continues on Monday 14 April at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.
