Season One (April 17th, 2011 through June 19th, 2011)

The first season of Game of Thrones is based off of Book One of the fantasy novel series A Song of Ice and Fire. The book title, A Game of Thrones, is being used as the overarcing title for the whole TV series. The first season consists of ten episodes, written by the show creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, as well as Jane Espenson, Bryan Cogman and the author of the novels himself, George R.R. Martin.

  1. Winter Is Coming
  2. The Kingsroad
  3. Lord Snow
  4. Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things
  5. The Wolf and the Lion
  6. A Golden Crown
  7. You Win or You Die
  8. The Pointy End
  9. Baelor
  10. Fire and Blood

Season Two

The series was renewed for a second season only a few days after the premiere of the first episode. The season is based off of Book Two, A Clash of Kings. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss continued to write most of the episodes, with George R.R. Martin writing one episode as well (#9, entitled "Blackwater"). There are ten episodes.

  1. The North Remembers
  2. The Night Lands
  3. What is Dead May Never Die
  4. Garden of Bones
  5. The Ghost of Harrenhal
  6. The Old Gods and the New
  7. A Man Without Honor
  8. The Prince of Winterfell
  9. Blackwater
  10. Valar Morghulis

Season Three

The show's ratings actually improved in season two, so that a third ten episode season was quickly greenlit. As the third book, "A Storm of Swords," is too long to properly fit into that time (having a similar word count to the entirety of The Lord of the Rings), and the ambitious scope of the series precludes making more within a year, Season Three will not contain the entirety of the third book. George R.R. Martin wrote episode #7, "Autumn Storms."
