'Game of Thrones' Expands Its Roster of European Locations

As is the case in the book series on which it is based, the world of 'Game of Thrones' is continuing to expand.

HBO has confirmed that parts of the upcoming season will be filmed in Croatia and Iceland.

Croatia will supply locations for some of the southern parts of Westeros, the fictional kingdom in which the drama takes place. Not surprisingly, the well-informed fan site Winter is Coming has extensive intel on the locations we can expect to see on the show.

The 700-foot Wall, the far northern Westeros location that is home to the men of the Night's Watch, was the setting of many of my favorite season 1 moments. As you'll recall, Jon Snow and the men who serve in the Night's Watch help protect Westeros from the fearsome creatures beyond the Wall's icy bulk. Some of the season 2 scenes set beyond the Wall will be shot in Iceland, HBO said Monday.

Of course, much of the series will continue to be shot in and around Belfast, the show's base of operations (reportedly Malta, where some season 1 sequences were shot, will not be used for season 2 locations). Production on the second season got underway at the end of July, and the new season will air in the spring of 2012.

As for casting and other updates on the show, Winter is Coming and Westeros generally have all the latest news.

Love this show and can't wait until it comes back on.... along with Supernatural. Remember the good ole days when a season started in September and ended in May?

I want info on what other positions, if any, that they will use instead of violent doggy style.
It would be cool if they could replace the sex scenes with story, but they gots to get the dollas somehow.
