Winter is coming, my friends. But fear not! You have the promise of Game of Thrones' return awaiting you in the spring. HBO's sword and sorcery spectacular--and two-time Emmy nominee for Best Drama--is slated to return on March 31, 2013 for season three. Not much is known about the new episodes, except that they will be based primarily on the third book in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, A Storm of Swords, and continue to explore the bloody events of The War of the Five Kings.
HBO's not taking any chances, either, when it comes to spoilers. They've released a minimalist new poster for season three that lists nothing but the premiere date. Talk about stark! Or should we say, Stark? Check it out.
Looking forward to the new season? Or are you disappointed that HBO's being so parsimonious with details?
