Yes, that’s right. HBO has already ordered season two, and cast and crew (that survived season 1) are trickling back, casting calls are open, it’s “Game” on! According to Westeros.org: “Production offices open, crew filtering back, casting calls, location scouting…”
They clocked in with 4.2 million viewers for the premier episode. I’d say they touched a nerve 😉

For some reason, there is a lot of speculation about whether the show will keep its current title. I don’t think they can retitle it every season, that would be odd. “Game of Thrones” is short and to the point, and kind of sums up what it’s all about. The title of the book series is “A Song of Ice and Fire”, with Ice and Fire being the names of swords. I don’t think that works as well for a television show title.
We are HUNGRY for more.
