(FP) BEVERLY HILLS – HBO’s most-watched series, the medieval fantasy drama Game of Thrones, will likely continue through three more seasons, a network executive said on Thursday, as he defended the show’s gritty violence.That was the message delivered on Thursday by Michael Lombardo, the president of programming at HBO, at the Television Critics Association summer tour. 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.

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. The show’s creators, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, had previously said the show would end after seven seasons, but now they are “feeling like there’s probably two more years after [season] six,” Mr. Lombardo defended its graphic depictions as part of the story and said he supported show creators Dan Weiss and David Benioff. “This show has had violence as part of its many threads from first episode,” he said. “There are no two showrunners more careful about not overstepping what they think the line is.” 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 was giving away anything on Thursday.

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 said. “Particularly with a digital platform and on-demand where things are available, I think quality will ultimately win out.” (Reuters) Martin novels that inspired it, noting that there is “enormous storytelling to be mined in a prequel.” It’s not hard to understand why HBO wants to keep “Game of Thrones” going for as long as possible. The finale ended in a cryptic cliffhanger about a character’s apparent death and dominated the conversation online for days, further demonstrating the scale of the show’s pop culture footprint.
