Game Of Thrones Gets Second Series After One Episode


GAME OF THRONES, the new Hbo fantasy series starring British actor Sean Bean has been renewed for a second series after just one episode, reports the New York Times. GAME OF THRONES' season premiere aired on Sunday (17th April 2011) to an audience of 2.2 million.
The medieval fantasy series is based on author GEORGE R. R. MARTIN's best-selling series of novels 'A Song of Ice and Fire'. The story centres on the violent dynastic struggles of noble families looking to seek control of the 'Iron Throne'. Although 2.2 million is regarded as a respectable start for the 10-episode series, the figures are considerably smaller than Hbo's September 2010 launch of their drama series 'Boardwalk Empire', which drew 4.8 million viewers for its debut. Sean Bean, best known for his starring roles in 'Lord of the Rings' and 'Goldeneye', plays the Lord of Winterfell 'Ned Stark' in 'Game of Throne'. Joining Bean in the cast of the new show is Peter Dinklage, Mark Addy, Nikolaj Coster-waldau and MICHELLE FAIRLEY.
Although Hbo have confirmed that 'Game of Thrones' will return for a second season, the company did not say when production on the new episodes will begin. The first season pilot episode reportedly cost between $5 and $10 million and the total budget was estimated to be $60 million.
