HBO Planning to Shoot GAME OF THRONES Season Three and Four Back-to-Back?

     November 30, 2011


Though the second season of Game of Thrones won’t even premiere until April, rumors are already swirling about seasons beyond. The series fansite Winter is Coming has apparently heard from multiple sources that HBO is planning to order seasons three and four of the fantasy epic and shoot them back-to-back. As of now this is just a rumor, but since there has been talk that adapting the book A Storm of Swords to series would take more than one season, shooting seasons three and four back-to-back makes sense. Of course, it would also make sense to just have more episodes ordered for a third season. Otherwise, shooting the seasons back-to-back might result in a longer wait between the second and third seasons. Either way, it sounds like the crew has been told to prepare for a longer shoot to compensate for this forthcoming order, but we likely won’t hear anything further until the likely huge ratings for the second season premiere come through.
