Game of Thrones Renewed For Season 3

It's been up in the air as to whether Game of Thrones would be renewed for a third season. We were told we'd find out over a week ago and still nothing...until today! EW has a nice little article:
The third season is expected to be more-or-less based on the first half of George R.R. Martin’s A Storm of Swords — the third novel of his “Song of Ice and Fire” series of fantasy bestsellers. Long a fan favorite book of the series,  Swords has several dramatic twists and confrontations. Given the book’s length (the paperback edition is 1216 pages) and action-packed content, producers plan to break up the novel into two seasons. So … save the date!
Like we didn't know it would be renewed what with record viewings in the first two episodes. :)
