Seven seasons planned for Game of Thrones

There's good news for fans of hit fantasy series Game of Thrones - the show's creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss say they plan three more season of the epic adventure.

Season four of the show will start screening in both the US and Australia in April.

"It feels like this is the midpoint for us," Benioff told Entertainment Weekly.

"If we're going to go seven seasons, which is the plan, season four is right down the middle, the pivot point.''

The report said that the producers may even stretch the series an extra year, but it all depends on author George RR Martin, on whose Song of Ice and Fire novels the series is based.

So far he has released only five of the planned seven novels, and there's no word on when the rest will hit the bookstands.
