Game of Thrones

‘Game of Thrones’ is arguably one of the most successful television shows of all time, with millions of viewers from around the world tuning in to view each of its eight seasons and dozens of Primetime Emmy Awards recognizing its success. The HBO fantasy series, which wrapped up on May 19, 2019, is also among the world’s most expensive shows in terms of production costs, which often afforded the kind of impressive visual effects and detailed cinematography usually reserved for major motion pictures.

A Song of Ice and Fire

‘Game of Thrones’ is based on a book series titled “A Song of Ice and Fire” written by George R.R. Martin. A massive success in its own right, the book series has been read in its entirety by around eight percent of all U.S. based adults. Although the television show has finished, Martin has finished just five of the seven books which are planned for the series. The success of the original Game of Thrones television show has led to speculation that Martin’s world may soon spawn a variety of spin-off shows and movies drawing from the author’s additional work.
