Game of Thrones is an American fantasy television series created by David Benioff and DB Weiss for the US cable network HBO. The series is based on the novel series “A Song of Ice and Fire” (German “Das Lied von Eis und Feuer”) by George R.R. Martin, who also contributes to the series. The action is set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos. Resembling the European Middle Ages, the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros are shielded by a huge wall from a region of eternal winter to the north. Spring, summer, autumn and winter can last for several years or even decades, and their duration is unpredictable. The story begins at the end of a long summer and is told largely in parallel in three storylines. Tensions build between the powerful noble houses of the realm, eventually leading to an open struggle for the throne. With winter approaching, a threat from an alien race looms in the far north of Westeros, where the Night’s Watch at the Wall is tasked with protecting the kingdoms. In Essos, Daenerys Targaryen strives to regain power as heir to the Westeros royal family that was deposed years ago. The complex plot includes numerous characters and addresses, among other things, politics and power struggles, social conditions, wars and religions. The characters show differentiated moral shades.
The American premiere took place on April 17, 2011, followed by the German-language premiere on November 2, 2011. A total of eight seasons of “Game of Thrones” were broadcast and HBO is currently working on several branches, so-called spin-offs to the series.
