The “Game of Thrones” Season 4 finale will come next week on June 15.
The episode will run about 66 minutes–the longest in the show’s history.
It will be titled “The Children.”
Some have wondered what will happen during Season 5.
A few weeks ago, it was reported by Deadline.com that the show would be renewed for Season 5 and Season 6.
Game Of Thrones is a phenomenon like no other,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo told Deadline. “(Creators) David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, along with their talented collaborators, continue to surpass themselves, and we look forward to more of their dazzling storytelling.”
According to a Nielsen report, episodes of the show have an average gross of 18.4 million viewers.
The 2002 season of “The Sopranos” had an average gross audience of 18.2 million per episode, the Nielsen report said, according to Variety.
Writers David Benioff and Dan Weiss talked to Entertainment Weekly about Episode 9: “I wouldn’t say it’s wall-to-wall action — because it doesn’t start right away — but once it gets going about 15 minutes into the episode it doesn’t stop. And we’re still on a TV budget. So the amount of action beats Neil had to shoot every day with a limited number of takes with the number of visual effects shots makes everything more complicated.”
Weiss added: “With so much action, the more layered it gets, and then the easier it is to stop making any sense and just show a lot of random guys hacking and beating away at each other. And Neil’s sense of what was happening in an extremely complicated environment is so strong.”
