With the events of season six of Game of Thrones still settling in the minds of all the fans out there, news is coming out about future seasons of the much beloved (and often aggravating) HBO series. According to an EW article about the TCA presentation for HBO, programming president Michael Lombardo said the following:
This is by no means a confirmation of another season, as the series is currently signed through the seventh season, but its a really good sign. Lombardo would continue to tease the fans with talk of a possible prequel series as well.
Lombardo would continue to address the events of season five, mainly the death of a fan favorite character. The big MAJOR death at the closing moments of the season five finale, is what I'm talking about, and I won't say more as to avoid spoilers.
So there ya go. Good news, bad news, whatever, it's Game of Thrones. We know what to expect, and that's to expect death, mourning, and sadness. But also to expect some awesome drama and adventure!
