Game of Thrones season 2 info. HBO has renewed Game of Thrones for its second season. After just one episode, the network has already renewed the adaptation of a popular fantasy book series for a second season. The early renewal should bolster support from fans who might be uneasy about making such a heavy investment in a very complex show.
Game of Thrones info
The series is based on author George R. R. Martin’s best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of seven planned fantasy novels, the first of which is called “A Game of Thrones.
The Game of Thrones premiere was watched by 2.2 million viewers (nearly doubling if you include same-night repeats). To put it in perspective, True Blood debuted with 1.4 million viewers, though the hit vampire show quickly grew to over 2.5 million by the end of the first season and nearly tripled its ratings by season 2. I’m sure HBO would love it if Game of Thrones followed the same pattern.
Game of Thrones air dates: Sundays at 9pm on HBO.
