Season Three

Spain
Yes, it's official.

HBO has ordered a third season of GAME OF THRONES.

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."

Full details can be found at a dozen other places on the web, so I won't rehash 'em here. Just wanted to pass along the news to my faithful readers.

We had a grab event tonight at the Bloomsbury Theatre. Now I'm tired. night, all.

Great news! And a question...
Hi from Croatia - the country where some of the series is shot and also the country that translated and published the latest book first!
I am really very happy about this peace of news. One of my most fervent hopes is that HBO will carry the show to its completion.
The question is, I guess, for Ty, as he seems to be the one responsible for reading through all these plaudits.
The last Ice and Fire update went up almost a year ago. Might we get at least an inkling of how things are going on that front?
It would be very much appreciated.

On that subject...
Fan from 2001 here. Really fed up with all the gratuitous nudie scene that HBO inserts all over the place. I am not a prude - but the sheer quantity and expliciteness(?) of it gets to the point where it's changing the mood of the story from a medieval epic tinged with fantasy - and simply a breakthrough solid piece of English writing - to a pink pervie Walmart top shelf commercial romance for trailer park moms.

Not that anyone can do anything about it , so I am just sayin'...

It's not so much gratuitous as it's there to keep people from getting up to get a sandwich when a character is giving a long monolog (or dialog) that is mostly exposition, and missing out on vital information.

COMMENT: Well, to me, "gratuitous" is something that isn't in the novel, or else that is there, but could have been shown partly, and gotten the same effect. I suppose we didn't need to see Daenerys in the bath, but on the other hand, she has to come out buck naked from the funeral pyre or else you miss the point that her clothes burned, but she didn't (I think she should have been bald, too, but grant her hair HBO magic license). If they ever get to book 5, how are they going to do Cersei's walk of shame with only cute framed shots? They'll have to use a body double or the real actress, or else it's just not going to work.

If they make it that far in the series, they'll also have some of the same problem with what is maybe my favorite Danny line from whole saga, one that made me laugh out loud. It's Daenerys to Daario: “I am your queen, and I command you to fuck me."

Can't wait for season 3. While I'm super excited about the Unsullied and the Red Wedding, I personally can't wait to see Beric Dondarrion, especially if the make up team can make him look how he should...

So do you have any idea yet which episode you will be writing for season 3?

Great news!
That's fantastic! I heard somewhere that they are trying to do one book per season. Is this true? You just mentioned that the third season would be approximately half of the 3rd book, so I'm hoping this means that they'll continue with the second half and not jump around too much. So far HBO has been pretty faithful to the books.

I loath Ross.
But otherwise yay for AGOT's renewal.
Congrats.
