It  is the perfect mixture of intrigue, violence, love and hope. And we’re getting at least two more seasons of it – says Ronn TorossianCEO of 5wpr. Game of Thrones has proven to HBO and the viewers that they’re around for the long haul, or at least for six seasons, which they fully deserve. In order to have a proper “long winter”, it should at least be that long, right?

The shows popularity has grown throughout the years, and is well-deserved. Without shoving too much down the viewers throat of mystical creatures and unrealistic occurrences, Game of Thrones paces the viewer through each episode and season, making the newly added changes seem completely plausible and realistic. If you look back at the first few seasons to where we are now, it would seem almost unbelievable. How the plots have thickened!

The end of last season, specifically the “Red Wedding”, left many viewers feeling a mixture of dread and excitement for things to come. This series is filled with war, violence, sex, and lies, the perfect mixture of what people are looking for in a TV show. But what makes this series really special is the character development. It has proven to be too difficult to pick one favorite character, as they all have good and bad traits. What keeps it interesting is that they keep on killing major players and adding new ones along the way. And this probably won’t stop; war is dirty and people die.HBO has a habit of cutting shows around season six, which is good and bad, depending on who you’re talking to. Most HBO series are dramatic and if they continue for too long they become long-winded. In order for Game of Thrones to make it past the six-season mark, they need to keep a perfect balance of suspense and intrigue. Considering that the show is based off of the book series by George R. R. Martin called Song of Fire and Ice, the viewers should at least see how it’s all going to end, and not get axed before it’s over with.Could there be a possibility that Martin will just continue writing? The story line is based around a war that has been brewing for awhile, and many characters are fighting to sit on the Iron Throne in King’s Landing. Martin cannot have the war go on for too long because people will eventually lose interest, same as in real life. But there are many ways to keep us interested, and war doesn’t have to be the basis. Here’s to another two seasons – let’s keep them coming.
