George R.R. Martin Hints At Season Three

By Charlie Harwood on May 12, 2012 to Game of Thrones

Apparently, our favorite fantasy author just got back from England and Portugal (Lucky!) and took some time today to update his Not A Blog. Among other things, GRRM spoke a little bit about Season Three and dropped a few hints:

The TV show. I finished and delivered my script for season three of GAME OF THRONES. It’s episode 307, with the working title “Autumn Storms.” David and Dan seem to like it. Casting is in full swing for the new season, so I’m watching auditions every night. Froggy may be turning up soon, but don’t hold your breath. I’m too busy to devote much time to whipping up obscure clues.”

Looks like GRRM will write another episode for the show. This season, he wrote the script for Ep. 9: “Blackwater”, which i’m really excited for. The title for next season’s episode, “Autumn Storms”, is interesting and it has me curious as to what material it will cover.  With scripts being turned in and casting already underway, it sounds as though Season Three is coming together nicely. From what I understand, filming for the series usually takes place between July and December, so they should be on pace to continue that trend. Casting has been going on in London for the past couple of weeks and we are still waiting for confirmations. I don’t think HBO has made any official decisions for characters yet, but those should be forthcoming soon. If everything continues to run smoothly, I expect that the third season will probably premiere around April 2013.

Without getting spoilery, who would you like to see cast for Season Three? Personally, I would like to see the Reeds make an appearance (fingers crossed!).

Why does it have to be a year until the next series comes out that is just ballshit!!!im pissed off with that.So hopefully they can do it early and Game of Thrones is awsome

The question is: Who will play Mance, King Beyond the Wall? I honestly think he’s the biggest character not yet cast, right?

Edmure Tully and Brynden Tully. My dream casting would be David Wenham as Edmure.

I am a big fan of the Reeds, so I’m hoping both Jojen and Meera are cast, but I would be happy if they are combined into one character with the same, erm, abilities.

Victarion, Euron, and Aeron Greyjoy should also be cast.

With Myrcella shipped off to Dorne, I hope they bring the Martells into the series a bit early. I’d like to see Arianne, Trystan, Doran, and Oberyn.

“froggy” isn’t a reference to any character.

GRRM puts a “froggy” symbol on the posts where he offers fans casting clues, like this one for example –
