Hope you watched the first episode of Game of Thrones! I did, and I loved it! I thought Lena was wonderful in it and it’s so much fun to see her in this character 🙂 I will add captures from the pilot episode any day now and make clips. And we have some wonderful news as well! The series has been renewed for a second season!
HBO has renewed its fantasy series Game of Thrones after airing only one episode. The show’s second season will likely debut next year and will be based on George R.R. Martin’s second book in his Song of Ice and Fire series, A Clash of Kings.
“We are delighted by the way David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have brought George R.R. Martin’s amazing book series to the screen, and thrilled by the support of the media and our viewers,” said Michael Lombardo, president of HBO. “This is the continuation of an exciting creative partnership.”
As previously reported, a Thrones renewal was likely even before the show premiered given HBO’s big investment in creating the world of Westeros and the potential back-end from international sales and DVD.
Sunday’s premiere ratings were fairly healthy too, with the drama delivering 4.2 million viewers across three airings.
Here is a preview for the second episode:
