Game of Thrones (Season 2)
Begins Fri Aug 30, 2013 at 10pm ET/7pm PT on Showcase
Here's a look into Season 2 of Game of Thrones:
"With tensions and treaties, animosity and alliances, Season 2 of Game of Thrones is a thrilling journey through a riveting, unforgettable fictional landscape based on George R.R. Martin's bestselling novel A Clash of Kings. In Kings Landing, the coveted Iron Throne is occupied by cruel young Joffrey (Jack Gleeson), counseled by his conniving mother Cersei (Lena Headey) and uncle Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), who has been appointed Hand of the King. But the Lannister hold on the Throne is under assault on many fronts. There's Robb Stark (Richard Madden), son of the slain Lord of Winterfell Ned Stark, who seeks autonomy in the north and has taken Cersei's brother Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) prisoner in battle; Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), looking to shore up her depleted power in the east through three newborn dragons; Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), brother of the late king Robert, who rejects Joffrey's legitimacy and aligns with a powerful priestess to raise a naval attack; Stannis' brother Renly (Gethin Anthony), who has maintained his own claim since fleeing Kings Landing; and Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen), who was raised by the Starks, but whose blood ties in his native Iron Islands runs deep. In the meantime, a new leader is rising among the wildings outside the Wall, adding new perils for Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and the order of the Night's Watch."
