Game-of-Thrones-cancelled-renewed-season-fourIn an unsurprising turn of events, HBO renewed Game of Thrones for a fourth season that will air in 2014 and will be for ten more episodes. After the big ratings delivered for the third season premiere, HBO moved fast and secured the show for a new season that will start production later this year to premiere around this time of next year.

Nobody can say it was unexpected, but everybody can be sighing of relief, because it´s always good to get some official confirmation.

As the official synpsis for the show reads:

Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men…all will play the ‘Game of Thrones.’

The show with characters played by Aidan Gillen, Lena Headey, Jack Gleeson, Natalie Dormer, Gwendoline Christie, Jerome Flynn, Rory McCann, Alfie Allen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Charles Dance, Carice van Houten, James Cosmo, Iain Glen, Ciaran Hinds, Liam Cunningham, Sibel Kekilli, Kit Harrington, Maisie Williams, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Michelle Fairley, Richard Madden, Sophie Turner, Emilia Clarke, John Bradley, Conleth Hill and Rose Leslie to only name a third of them, proves to be a huge ensemble and crossing storylines that require the viewer to be on the edge of their seats.
