Earlier this month, HBO renewed "Game of Thrones" for a third season. But when "Game of Thrones" returns in 2013, it may once again be joined by its two current companion series.

HBO has formally renewed both "Girls" and "Veep," which potentially means that both series will come back next spring and rejoin "Game of Thrones" on Sunday nights. Both "Girls" and "Veep" will have ten episode second seasons.

"Girls" is the creation of Lena Dunham, who stars in the series as a struggling writer named Hannah Horvath alongside her friends Marnie Michaels (Allison Williams), Jessa Johansson (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna Shapiro (Zosia Mamet) as they make their way through life in New York City. "Veep" follows "Seinfeld" veteran Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, the new Vice President of the United States as she navigates the comedic pratfalls that come with her high office.

Across multiple airings, "Girls" is averaging 3.8 million viewers per episode while "Veep" is slightly behind with 3.7 million viewers per episode.
