The first season of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is based off Book One of the fantasy novel series ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. The book title, ''Literature/AGameOfThrones'', 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, Creator/GeorgeRRMartin (who wrote episode #8, "The Pointy End").

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, ''Literature/AClashOfKings''. 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.

The show's ratings actually improved in season two, so that a third ten episode season was quickly green-lit. 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 does 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.

The ratings exploded in season three, setting a new record with almost every episode, so naturally a fourth season was quickly approved. It covers roughly the last third of ''A Storm of Swords'', and also adapts some elements of ''Literature/AFeastForCrows'' and ''Literature/ADanceWithDragons'', which take place simultaneously. George R.R. Martin wrote episode #2, "The Lion and the Rose."

Season Five adapts ''Literature/AFeastForCrows'' and ''Literature/ADanceWithDragons'', consolidating the events into one linear narrative instead of separating the story by location as the books did. Beginning this season, however, the series also begins to move beyond the source material, featuring events that (at time of broadcast) had yet to occur within the books, and in several cases story arcs belonging to characters not featured in the TV series are reassigned to established TV characters.

Season Six adapts some content from ''Literature/AFeastForCrows'' and ''Literature/ADanceWithDragons'', as well as the not-yet-released ''The Winds of Winter'', but largely consists of original content.
