HBO renewed the highly successful ‘Game of Thrones’ with two seasons. The show scored HBO’s highest rated episode since ‘The Sopranos’ went off the air with the season four premiere. That doesn’t even include the millions of viewers who watch through alternative channels. Meanwhile the show’s marketing reaches the far corners of the earth and the dozens of actors are upgraded to the higher levels of stardom. ‘Game of Thrones’ is a global phenomenon in every way. Rightfully so. It’s one of the most consistent shows in quality on television. Last season’s unprecedented climax sent fans screaming into their pillows. The new season is as anticipated as the Super Bowl or a Hunger Games sequel. There seems to be no end to the show’s success. Yet, the future of the show is worrisome to say the least.
