Recent “Game of Thrones” news surfaced that the show has already been renewed for its seventh season.

The official Twitter channel of “Game of Thrones” confirmed on April 22, 2016 that Season 7 has been ordered. There are talks that the next two seasons of the hit HBO series will consist of fewer than 10 episodes, but fans are already pleased to know that they will be seeing more of the characters for at least another season.

Seasons 1 to 6 each have 10 episodes. Co-showrunner David Benioff and HBO executive Michael Lombardo told Variety that they believe that they only need 13 episodes to wrap up the story, which will be spread over two seasons.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, they are aiming to garner more seasons of “Game of Thrones” for HBO, even if they have to pay more to the stars of the show. Each episode costs millions of dollars to make, while the characters who have been present since the earlier seasons are bound to become among the highest-paid on cable TV.

TIME reveals that viewers can watch the Season 6 premiere on April 24 as long as they have a cable subscription. HBO announced that it partnered with Cinemax for the promotion of the debut, offering its premium service for free over the weekend. Viewers with a cable subscription can enjoy a trial period of 48 hours anytime within the promo period, which is from Friday, April 22, to Monday, April 25. Individuals who do not have cable may enjoy one free month of the HBO Now standalone streaming service.

Other shows that viewers can watch for free via HBO premium service include Beyonce’s special event, “Lemonade,” the pay-TV premiere of “Jurassic World,” the season premiere of “Silicon Valley,” and the season premiere of “Veep.”

In the meantime, HBO is preparing for other shows like “Westworld,” “The Leftovers” and “Vinyl.” The network producers are also beginning to look for a great replacement when “Game of Thrones” finally goes off the air.

More updates and details are expected soon. “Game of Thrones” Season 6 launches on April 24.
