HBO has ordered a third season of its adaptation of Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. Above, we’ve embedded a trailer for the second season.
The cable network broke the news on Twitter: “Game of Thrones has been renewed for a third season. RT and spread the word to #GoTFans across the realm.”
Last year, the New Yorker published a profile of fantasy novelist George R. R. Martin. Here’s an excerpt from the online abstract: “An entire community of apostates—a shadow fandom—is now devoted to taunting Martin, his associates, and readers who insist that he has been hard at work on the series and has the right to take as much time as he needs. The online attacks on Martin suggest that some readers have a new idea about what an author owes them. They see themselves as customers, not devotees, and they expect prompt, consistent service.”
