Following the series-high ratings for "Game of Thrones'" Season 4 premiere, HBO announced that the fantasy series has been renewed for Season 5 and Season 6.
This is great news for showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who have long made it clear that this show has a planned seven-season lifespan. If the series keeps building its audience the way it has, there is little to no doubt that "Game of Thrones" will reach that end point.
对于这部剧的制作人David Benioff和D.B. Weiss来说，这是个好消息，他们之前预计这部剧应该会拍7季。如果这部剧继续保持现在这种良好的趋势，《权力的游戏》拿到一个满意的结局是没什么压力了。
"'Game of Thrones' is a phenomenon like no other," HBO president of programming Michael Lombardo says in a press release. "David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, along with their talented collaborators, continue to surpass themselves, and we look forward to more of their dazzling storytelling."
“《权力的游戏》和其他剧不一样，它引导了一种现象，”HBO节目总裁Michael Lombardo在新闻发布会上说。“David Benioff和D.B. Weiss以及他们的团队将会继续超越自己，我们非常看好这部剧的剧情和发展。”
"Game of Thrones" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
