Look carefully, readers of George R.R. Martin, because this 2-minute “In Production” look at HBO’s upcoming third season of “Game of Thrones” is crammed full of new characters and plots that will be introduced into the show’s new season. There’s the guy with the bow, the girl with the bow, the guy with the flaming sword…etc.
From the sounds of it, this is the season that even producers/showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have been dying to get to. Well they’re finally here, and I have to say, even though much of Season 2 left me wanting (lots), I can’t wait for 2013.
In a lot of ways, “A Storm of Swords” is a pivotal book, in that it merges multiple storylines that, up to now have been running on their own little merry separate ways, and resolves major plotlines from the last two books. Characters that we have been following for a while now really begin to take off into new directions, while old ones die away, and still others grow more important. I suspect the TV series will be similar in that regard, so miss Season 3 at your own peril.
Season 3 of “Game of Thrones” premieres March 31st, 2013 on HBO.
