Winter is coming! HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones has been renewed for a third season in 2013. The show's second season premiere had 3.9 viewers and 6.3 million viewers tuned in for reruns during the night—huge gains over the first-season average. HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said, “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.”
