There was no doubt in my mind that HBO would renew Game of Thrones, but it's still reassuring to know that season three is definitely on the way. The network announced the big news this morning, which makes sense considering the first two episodes of season two have performed very well in the ratings. HBO president Michael Lombardo had this to say: "Series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss raised our expectations for the second season – and then surpassed them. We are thrilled by all the viewer and media support we’ve received for the series, and can’t wait to see what Dan and David have in store for next season." I think fans will agree with that — are you pumped about this news?
