Game of Thrones Season 6 Trailer

Game of Thrones Renewed for Season 7

Just three days ahead of Game of Thrones‘ long-awaited return, HBO announced that it has ordered a seventh season of the swords-and-dragons drama.

The renewal announcement did not include the number of episodes in Season 7, though the series’ executive producers recently discussed the possibility of doing only seven episodes — instead of the usual 10 — in Season 7, then doing a final season of only six episodes. HBO would not confirm the number of episodes order for Season 7 at this time.

Additionally, HBO has ordered more Veep (Season 6) and Silicon Valley (Season 4), both of which will air in 2017.
