!!Season Three (March 31, 2013 through June 9, 2013)

The show's ratings actually improved in season two, so that a third ten episode season was quickly greenlit. As the third book, ''Literature/AStormOfSwords'' is too long to properly fit into that time (having a similar word count to the entirety of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''), 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, "The Bear and the Maiden Fair." Though it should be noted that the writing credits for this season aren't exactly accurate, as many scenes got swapped between episodes.

!!Season Four (2014)

The ratings exploded in season three, setting a new record with almost every episode, so naturally a fourth season was quickly approved. It will cover the remainder of ''A Storm of Swords'', and possibly dip into the early parts of books four and five, ''Literature/AFeastForCrows'' and ''Literature/ADanceWithDragons'', which take place simultaneously. George R.R. Martin wrote episode #2, "The Lion and the Rose."
