'Game of Thrones' Season 2 Preview Airs on HBO (VIDEO)

by Maureen Ryan, posted Nov 20th 2011 9:00PM
In a new behind-the-scenes video that aired on HBO Sunday night, we got our first glimpses of the second season of 'Game of Thrones.'

The show doesn't return until April, but we're sure this is the first of many preview tidbits designed to whet our interest for the next round of machinations in Westeros and beyond. What do you think, 'Game of Thrones' fans -- did it work?

What am I saying? Of course those of us who became entranced by the first season of the show are counting the days until Tyrion, Cersei, Arya, Jon Snow and all the rest return -- not just those characters, of course, but the dozens of new players who will join the game in 2012.

Take it away, 'Game of Thrones' cast and producers:



By the way, all our 'Game of Thrones' coverage is here and HBO's regular 'Thrones' site and its extensive Making of 'Game of Thrones' sub-site are good resources as well. For day-to-day coverage of the show, you can't beat the exhaustive and well-written fan sites Westeros and Winter is Coming, who do a fabulous job of keeping fans informed of every scrap of news about the HBO show and the George R.R. Martin book series on which it is based.

For instance, Winter is Coming reported that filming recently ended on season 2 of the series in Northern Ireland, where most of the show is shot. Next up: 10 days of shooting in Iceland in December.

Doesn't that sound cozy?

And yes, I know that the image at the top of this post is from season 1. You can bet that when fresh season 2 images are available, I will grab them quicker than Tyrion absconds with a flagon of ale.

Thanks for the heads up Mo. Finished the second book, loved it, and am really curious how they are going to pull off the second season from a budget perspective. The world really does open up and the story canvas becomes a much greater piece of work to fill visually.

Fantastic! Can't wait!

I am one of the fans who had not read the books, so watched Season 1 cold. What I didn't understand on the screen was explained to me in your insightful writeups.

After the season ended, I read the first novel, and found my reading pleasure enhanced by having seen the screen version first. I am determined to continue the pattern, reading after viewing, but it's damnably difficult to stick to it! I am sooo tempted to buy the 2nd book now and read it!

Are guys going to keep a running tab on number of sex scenes and the number of positions that aren't "doggy"?

Remember "Doggy" is only used for slaves.
