It has been reported that Game of Thrones Season Three is set to have a whole episode worth of extra material built into the season. Showrunner Dan Weiss has revealed that, fans who were hoping for more from the third season of Game of Thrones are set to be in for a treat.
Weiss told Entertainment Weekly, “There's almost another full episode's worth of extra minutes spread across the season. One of the great liberties with HBO is we're not forced to come in at a specific time. We can't be under 50 minutes or over 60, but that gives us a lot of flexibility.”
He added, “All 10 episodes gained a minute or two from past seasons with the finale very possibly exceeding 60 minutes. So for people clamouring for another episode, it's in there. It's just been cut into tiny pieces.”
Game of Thrones Season Three is set to see the return of many of the fans favourite characters, as well as some new faces, when it premieres on HBO on March 31, 2013. The show will also air in the UK on Sky Atlantic.
