Variety: HBO has renewed “Game of Thrones,” “Silicon Valley” and “Veep” for 2017, the network announced Thursday. The three shows are set to premiere their new seasons Sunday.
The network did not announce the number of episodes for the next season of “Game of Thrones,” which would be its seventh. Executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss recently told Variety that they would like to see the show’s final two seasons be shortened from the normal 10 episodes — six episodes for season seven and seven episodes for season eight.
