George R.R. Martin Dishes Info on Game of Thrones Season 3

After the announcement that Game of Thrones will indeed be back for a 3rd season, the series author George R.R. Martin has updated his blog about the renewal.

Martin states that “Like the first two seasons, it will be ten episodes long.  This one will cover (roughly) the first half or thereabouts of A STORM OF SWORDS, the third novel in the series. I’ll be writing the seventh episode, with the working title “Autumn Storms.”

So there you have it, from the man himself, the season will cover the first half or so of A Storm of Swords, this would most likely be the first book if you own the 2 part version of A Storm of Swords, so readers will know what to expect. It’s also exciting that Martin will once again scribe an episode this season as he did for Seasons 1 & 2.


Game of Thrones Renewed for Season 3

You Win or You Die!

File this under not a surprise, on the back of a great premiere and viewer numbers, as well as a level of hype that was through the roof, HBO has announced that the show has been officially renewed.

Depending on what happens in this season and the changes made to the continuity of the book, season 3 should deal with the book A Storm of Swords, widely held as the best book in the series. Even if some of the events of A Storm of Swords have been moved up into season 2 of the show, season 3 should still deal with the majority of the book, meaning it should be a great season!
