Season Four!!!

HBO has officially renewed GAME OF THRONES for a fourth season. (And I'm almost finished with the first draft of my script. No, sorry, not going to tell you which one it is).

Record ratings for our season three premiere, "Valar Dohaeris."

Also (sigh) record levels of piracy.

On other topics... no, no, Peter Dinklage is NOT being replaced by Warwick Davis in the role of Tyrion. That was just HBO's little April Fools joke. (I was so busy I forgot to make my own April Fools joke). So calm down, boys and girls. Peter is still with us.

I feel HBO was being insensitive.
I feel like that joke is insensitive to little people. What I think would be funny is if the rumour was of some gigantic actor being tapped to take over the role. You could even go with another Harry Potter alum, Robbie Coltrane. That would be funny. Dinklage got the role because he earned it, not because he is short. The new actor playing the Mountain does not physically fit the part. Lena Heady and Emilia Clarke do not have the right hair to play their parts, but because they are good, with costuming, wigs and makeup, they get to play those roles. But if Peter laughs at, I'm fine.

Actually, I erred. If you will check the comments here, you will see that the prank was not done by HBO, but by an unaffiliated site that covers HBO programming.

Hey George,
Any chance you could update this post to reflect that? Don't want anyone else to be confused!
