The saga of Westeros known as Game of Thrones is likely going to wrap up after seven seasons and all the principle actors are on board now…
HBO’s biggest hit in history — Game of Thrones — is currently in production for season 5 set to premiere in 2015, but the cast is already looking towards the final year for the show on air (in theory).
With show runners David Benioff and Dan Weiss stating that they see Game of Thrones wrapping up in seven seasons, the cast for the series still needed to be signed on for a potential seventh season assuming HBO renews the show (they’re going to renew the show).
So in anticipation of moving forward on season 6 and season 7, HBO has locked up the actors for the show for both years with lucrative new contracts being handed out to everyone in the cast.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pay raises are doled out in tiers based on status with the show. Actors like Peter Dinklage and Emilia Clarke will see the biggest bump in pay with final totals making them some of the highest paid actors in cable television today.
The lower tiered stars will still get a bump in pay as well, but not quite as significant as the featured roles but still a raise.
