HBO has granted the show a second season, sending show runners David Benioff and Dan Weiss back to Belfast, where they are furiously working on adapting a script from the second book of the saga, “A Clash of Kings.”
I just added screencaptures of “Lord Snow” and “Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things” to the gallery. Check them out below.
HBO is really pushing their new online streaming service HBO Go, which is available only to HBO subscribers. We have already noted that they have added a bunch of cool special features for Game of Thrones episodes. And now HBO has announced that they will stream episode seven of Thrones on HBO Go a week before it airs. The Hollywood Reporter has the story:
The executive [HBO co-president Eric Kessler] on Tuesday also said that HBO Go will exclusively make available the following week’s episode of new HBO hit Game of Thrones right after the May 22 episode, which ends with a cliffhanger that Kessler said will entice fans to immediately see what happens next. The move is part of a plan to offer exclusive content windows on HBO Go to “encourage registration” of users for the service, he said.
A new Game of Thrones trailer has been released containing never before seen footage plus critics praise. You can watch it below.
I just added screencaptures of Richard from the most recent episode of Game of Thrones entitled “The Kingsroad” to the gallery. He wasn’t in it much this week either! Lets hope he gets some more prominent storylines soon.
