HBO programming president Michael Lombardo made the revelations to a set of reporters during Television Critics Association's winter press tour, said The Hollywood Reporter.

The renewal would be for seasons seven and eight. It will be the second time that the fantasy drama, based on the books by George RR Martin, has scored the dual order.

In 2014, the network renewed the Emmy-winning drama for seasons five and six.

The news came after HBO announced an April 24 premiere date for sixth season of the series.

A formal announcement is expected to come soon.
