One of the big pop culture events of the year happens in just under two weeks, but it won’t be at a theater near you. Instead, it’ll be Sunday night on HBO when the fourth season of “Game Of Thrones” kicks off. And while a couple more brief promos have arrived to further tease fans eagerly awaiting to see what’s in store, the biggest speculation right now is on the future of the show.
It was just a couple weeks ago when writers revealed they had already started laying down the path to close things off in the seventh or eighth season, with talk of a potential movie to follow already being kicked around. And while those plans are still solidifying, HBO has shown their support by retaining showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss through season six (via EW). Of course, the show hasn’t officially been renewed for even a fifth season, but considering “Game Of Thrones” is the most watched show on the network, unless something goes horribly wrong, you can probably count on seeing it on HBO’s schedule in the years to come.
Season four lands on April 6th. Watch the new teasers below.
