We are seven weeks out from the season three premiere of HBO's "Game of Thrones" and fans are growing impatient. Though there has been two 'teaser' trailers, both have been stand-alone visual effects driven promos.
There has been plenty of behind-the-scenes video blogs, but we still have yet to see any actual finished footage from the upcoming season. That is expected to change very soon. Before it does though, something else has leaked out.
Spoiler TV has posted the synopsis for the season three premiere episode. Check it out below:
Jon is brought before Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall, while the Night's Watch survivors retreat south. In King's Landing, Tyrion asks for his reward, Littlefinger offers Sansa a way out, and Cersei hosts a dinner for the royal family. Arya runs into the Brotherhood Without Banners. Danerys sails into Slaver's Bay.
Meanwhile, word came earlier this week that author and 'Thrones' co-executive producer George R. R. Martin has signed a two-year development deal with HBO.
Martin penned "A Song of Ice and Fire" which is the basis for the series. Under the new deal, Martin will continue as co-executive producer on the show. He will also develop and produce new series projects for the network.
While 'Thrones' is expected to remain unchanged in the way it operates, there has been much speculation that Martin may be pitching further projects based on his work. In fact, there's talk of possible mini-series or movies based on his "Dunk & Egg" short stories, 'Thrones' prequels set almost a century before events in the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series.
