Breaking records every year with Emmy wins and illegal views, it's no secret that Game Of Thrones is in HIGH demand!

And HBO is making sure to ride the cash dragon for all its worth — by renewing the fantasy drama for another two seasons!

At Thursday's Television Critics Association's winter press tour, programming president Michael Lombardo said the premium cable network is finalizing a dual order for seasons seven and eight of the series based on George R.R. Martin's books!

Game Of Thrones is no stranger to multi-season orders. Back in 2014, HBO renewed the rating juggernaut for seasons five and six.

no title

You know how True Detective was everyone's favorite show in 2014 but hit the bottom of the barrel in 2015??

While many fans were quick to blame the faltered quality on new cast Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and on showrunner Nic Pizzolatto, the president of HBO is finally here to clear the air.

In fact, Michael Lombardo is actually taking all of the heat for season two of the crime drama!

Get Ready To Say Goodbye To Your Favorite Girls! The HBO Show Will Reportedly End After Season 6!

Filed under: TV NewsLena DunhamAllison Williams

At least we still have some time left with these lovely ladies!

The good news is that we still have two full seasons to prepare ourselves!

On Tuesday, Variety confirmed that the end is not-so-near for Girls, revealing that the popular program will be finished after its sixth season.

While HBO has kept quiet regarding the wrapping rumors, sources say the network will announce the sad news on Thursday during the Television Critics Association press tour.

Now, we can't say we're super surprised at this news, since the show's creator-slash-star, Lena Dunham, has said in the past that she thinks American series tend to last longer than they should.

Plus, rumors have been circling that HBO's president, Michael Lombardo, has previously talked with the 29-year-old about only having six seasons of the dramedy.

But luckily for us, Girls won't be ending anytime soon. The fifth season doesn't even premiere until the end of February, so we have plenty of time to prepare our heartfelt goodbyes.

Sarah Jessica Parker Finally Returns To HBO For A Divorce (Please Say From Mr. Big)! Get Your First Look At The Breakup Comedy HERE!

no title

Finally, Sarah Jessica Parker is going through with her Divorce!

No, we're not talking about her real life marriage to Matthew Broderick, but her highly-anticipated HBO series that tells "the story of a very, very long divorce." LOLz!

The Sex & The City star is exec producing and starring in the half-hour comedy as Frances, a woman who reassesses her life and marriage, and we're assuming at some point, files for divorce!

We'll have to wait to find out how different Frances will be from Carrie Bradshaw, as we only have one promotional still to go off of.

Hmmm… it doesn't seem like Frances is as big of a fashion risk taker… But maybe that will happen after she's liberated from the divorce?

It looks like we'll have enough time to speculate — HBO president Michael Lombardo said at the Television Critics Association press day that he hoped the series would premiere in spring or summer of 2016!

Will YOU be watching Divorce?

Big Love Goes Bye Bye…After Next Season

Filed under: TV NewsTom HanksBusiness Blitz

big love to end after upcoming season

Time to say goodbye to Big Love…almost!

After the upcoming 5th season of Big Love, which premieres on January 16, we'll have to find another show about polygamy!

…Guess there's always Sister Wives assuming the entire cast doesn't go to jail.

Here's what President of HBO Programming Michael Lombardo had to say about the end of Big Love, via press release:

“It has been an honor and pleasure to work with series creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer on this unique and provocative series, and I’m happy that they will be able to bring the story to its close the way they always envisioned. We look forward with great anticipation to collaborating with Mark and Will on their next venture.”

And here's a statement from Big Love creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer:

“When we created Big Love in 2002, we had a strong conception of the journey the Henrickson family would make over the course of the series, of the story we had to tell. While we were in the writers’ room this year shaping our fifth season, we discovered that we were approaching the culmination of that story. Big Love has been our all-consuming labor of love for the past eight years. We are very grateful for HBO’s continuing support and for the collaborative effort of our partners at Playtone, our producers, our fine cast and our fellow craftsmen and crew for making this show the exceptional and joyful experience that it’s been. This coming January, we look forward to presenting our audience with the most vibrant and satisfying final season of a television series that we can produce.”

As for Exec Producer Gary Goetzman, he adds:

Big Love has been a truly rewarding experience in every way for Tom Hanks and me. We’ve been so fortunate to have had such a tremendous cast over the five seasons, and we’ve never been less than amazed with their brilliance and willingness to take risks. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our partnership with Will and Mark and have always been blown away by their storytelling abilities. We believe this final season of Big Love will be the best ever.”

Will U miss Big Love when it's gone?
