Game of Thrones hasn't officially been renewed for Season 5, but it seems incredibly unlikely that the epic fantasy won't get another installment. In fact, the show's Powers That Be seem so confident that Season 5 will happen that they've already started handing out promotions.

Back in January, we learned that Michiel Huisman, who is replacing Ed Skrein in the role of Daario for Season 4, will be a series regular for Season 5. Now, Entertainment Weekly reports that Nathalie Emmanuel, who plays Dany's translator and generally awesome companion Missandei will also be upped to series regular if the show is renewed.
We're excited about this news for two reasons. First, we just think Missandei is a cool character, so we're glad we'll be seeing more of her next year. Plus, this presumably means she's not going to be killed off like all of Dany's important female servants so far. Well, at least not in Season 4.
Second, the fact that both Michiel and Nathalie have been promoted suggests that Dany's storyline will get more play in Season 5, since their characters are both closely tied to the Mother of Dragons. We're all for more Dany!
