This March, “Game of Thrones” will make its triumphant return to HBO for its highly anticipated third season. The world created by George R. R. Martin is already among the most expansive shows on TV… and the scale is only going to get bigger in season three.

HBO has released the first “Game of Thrones” Season 3 “In Production” video, as showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss share their insight on what’s coming up in the new season. Executive producer Fred Doelger also weighs in with his thoughts, in addition to series stars Richard Madden, Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams and Emilia Clarke.

The new footage from Season 3 includes a glimpse of Robb Stark’s new appearance, Tyrion’s facial scars and a few of the new characters who will be joining the story.


"Game of Thrones" Season 3 will be primarily based on the first half of "A Storm of Swords," the third novel of Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" novel series.

"Game of Thrones" will premiere on HBO on Sunday, March 31 2013.
