An ensemble fantasy series adapted from the fictional series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin. Set in the fantastical lands of Westeros and Essos, seven noble families prepare for the biggest battle in centuries. The main houses are the stern and honorable Starks, fierce and mercurial Baratheons, cunning and wealthy Lannisters, and usurped and vengeful Targaryens. In a grand-scale saga, each house readies itself to fight for the Iron Throne and the supreme power it commands.

This coming season writer/producer partners David Benioff and Daniel Weiss are dishing out longer episodes to HBO. There are still 10 in the series, but all-in-all, added up, it will seem like 11. The season's finale is expected to run more than an hour! Plenty of Games and an abundance of Thrones!

There will also be many new characters appearing in Season 3, many played by recognizable faces, such as Mackenzie Crook (Pirates of the Caribbean), and the much loved Diana Rigg of original 1960s TV series The Avengers.
