SAN DIEGO, March 11, 2013 – “Game of Thrones,” the HBO miniseries which has set a new standard by which all other epic series will now be measured, will give its legion of fans reason to rejoice when Season 3 debuts on Sunday, March 31, at 9 p.m. Eastern Time on HBO East and HBO Latino East (with Spanish subtitles); followed by airings on HBO West and Latino West at 9 p.m. Pacific Time. All four channels repeat the episode immediately four times back to back.
Before the schemes, backstabbing, carnage and jaw-dropping twists get underway, HBO has put together a recap of Season 2 for fans to help fans refresh their memory of the action. And if you don’t have time to catch up on previous seasons, at least you won’t be completely lost at the start of Season 3.
The 14-minute video premiered on HBO Friday, March 8, and is now available for viewing online. Watch it in our window at the top of this column.
Show creators David Banioff and D.B. Weiss and key cast members talk about key points of the plot, the characters and their relationships with each other and their motivations driving the action in Season 2.
“Game of Thrones” is based on the beloved series of novels “A Song of Fire and Ice” by George R.R. Martin. HBO plans to cover the third book, “A Storm of Swords,” across two seasons, season 3 and season 4.
“Game of Thrones” is essentially a ten-hour long feature film, the equivalent of producing the entire “Lord of the Rings” movie trilogy every single year. The cast, crew, costumers, artists, designers, set-builders, and every other artisan involved leave no detail out, bringing the richly imagined world Martin created in his books to life for the lucky viewers. It’s hard to wait for months between editions, but when the episodes arrive it’s all worth it.
