A Song Of Ice And Fire author George RR Martin has responded on his blog to the news that Game Of Thrones has been renewed for a third season, offering (and confirming) a few more titbits of information in the process.
“Like the first two seasons, it will be ten episodes long,” he writes. “This one will cover (roughly) the first half or thereabouts of A Storm Of Swords , the third novel in the series. I’ll be writing the seventh episode, with the working title ‘Autumn Storms’.”
Martin has previously written the eighth episode of season one (“The Pointy End”) and the ninth episode of season two (“Blackwater”). [via Winteriscoming.net ]
