Best Game of Thrones news ever.

HBO programming chief Michael Lombardo has revealed the producers of the hit drama series are leaning toward three more seasons, including Season 6, which is currently filming. “I would always love for them to change their minds, but that’s what were looking at right now.” While talk of the end might get fans in hysterics, there is some good news. Actor Kit Harrington, who plays Jon Snow was recently spotted in Belfast, where is shot, adding to speculation he will be appearing in the new season some way or another. “Three weeks ago, I was the in the company of the President of the United States. Lombardo, noting that the drama has included violence as a thread since it started, said the producers were careful about not overstepping boundaries while remaining true to the storytelling. Executives have planned to run at least seven seasons and are discussing with the show’s creators how much longer the show will extend beyond that”, said Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming. He turned to me, put his hand on my shoulder, and said, ‘You didn’t kill Jon Snow did you?’” Nutter told Entertainment Weekly. “I said, ‘Jon Snow is deader than dead.’ I thought I was going to be sent to Guantanamo or something, but fortunately I’m here — but he’s dead,” he said of his meeting with Obama.

Earlier, the show was predicted to have seven seasons, but HBO’s president of programming Michael Lombardo said while addressed critics during the 2015 Summer TCA press tour, that “seven seasons and out” had never been the conversation,” E! Lombardo said he’d like to have more beyond that and would also be open to a prequel to the story of the epic battle for the Iron Throne in the fictional kingdom of Westeros, based on George R.R.

At Television Critics Association panel for HBO, our Bill Keveney reports that programming president Michael Lombardo made things pretty clear about the status of Snow: The fifth season also ended by killing off one of its lead characters and fan favourite, Jon Snow, but viewers have been speculating that the character will return — not that Lombardo gave away anything. Game of Thrones this year also helped launch HBO’s stand alone streaming service HBO Now, where viewers can watch HBO programming at any time without a cable subscription, as television continues to move toward on-demand viewing. He also said marketing has become more challenging amid an explosion of critically acclaimed shows. “Viewers of HBO, a unit of Time Warner Inc, routinely tune in Sunday nights, but other days are less certain,” he said. “I worry about that all the time,” he added. “Particularly with a digital platform and on-demand where things are available, I think quality will ultimately win out.”
