SPOILER ALERT: Game of Thrones Season 3 Promises to be "Wildest Season Yet" [NEW PHOTOS]
Entertainment Weekly dished about some details about the upcoming season of HBO's hit fantasy, Game of Thrones, and promises it to be the best, wildest season yet.
This week of EW features Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen on the cover, pairing fire and ice to further entice its audiences. The cover shows the catch phrases "Shocking Deaths!, Wild Weddings!, One Angry Bear!" in bold red to emphasize the kind of surprises fans have to expect on season 3's March 31 premiere.
Producers are egging fans to take reference on Ygritte's famous quote about this new installation: "You know nothing about season 3."
According to the EW report, season 3 will continue to show the complex rivalry of families for the Iron Throne, only with more shocking moments and throat-clenching surprises.
"Emotionally, this season really goes for the jugular," says Bryan Cogman, Game of Thrones story editor, to Entertainment Weekly.
"In some cases, quite literally," added Cogman, suggesting many shocking deaths and falls of some of the show's most-loved characters.
The issue takes readers and fans behind-the-scenes around the Northern Ireland set of GOT, with interviews from cast members, producers, and photo outtakes. The show's last season averaged 12 million viewers each episode, and became the most downloaded show of 2012. With the third season up in a few days, the viewership is expected to bloat up, even double because of the twists and more exciting moments to come.
Producers explain one "scene that cannot be named" that dreadfully affected the crew while filming. If the crew felt their stomach churn just by filming the scene, fans will surely go nuts finding out what kinds of bloody twists will occur.
"Like the book. It builds up... I've never seen the crew so emotional," says producer David Benioff.
"Once the season kicks into gear, we've already seen stuff that makes me think it will be the best one yet. And it ought to be." Added the show-runner.
