    “Wow, ¡que sorpresa!” dijo absolutamente nadie: HBO anunció hoy que Game of Thrones oficialmente tendrá su quinta y sexta temporada. Michael Lombardo, presidente de programación de la cadena hizo el anuncio:

    “Game of Thrones es un fenómeno sin igual. David Benioff y D. B. Weiss, junto con sus talentosos colaboradores, continúan superándose ellos mismos, y esperamos más de su deslumbrante narración”.

    Esto sale justo después que HBO anunciara que la premiere de la cuarta temporada fue el programa más visto desde el episodio final de los Sopranos (11.9 millones), con 6.6 millones de televidentes que, junto a los que vieron las repeticiones, fueron un total de 8.2 millones.

    La única preocupación es que con la cuarta temporada, se termina (más o menos) de adaptar el tercer libro de la serie en que está basada. Claro, hay otros dos libros pero, la mayoría de los sucesos son al mismo tiempo y realmente no hay mucho avance en la historia, una de las críticas principales a su autor George R. R. Martin.

    Westeros House sigilsLos productores del programa ya dijeron que la serie continuará sin problema hasta la séptima temporada pues saben lo que va a pasar, mientras que Martin asegura que la serie no lo alcanzará pues los últimos dos libros, “The Winds of Winter” y “A Dream of Spring” están bastante avanzados. Aunque tampoco descartó la posibilidad de adaptar el último libro a una película.

    Lo importante es que estemos tranquilos de saber que hay Game of Thrones para rato, seguiremos siendo felizmente miserables con las crónicas de Westeros y más allá.
