Since appearing on large screens, it has become instantly cult. Attracting more than 30 million viewers to the TV screen.
The series was shot for HBO, based on the series of novels "Song of Fire and Flame" by George R.R. Martin. The first show, which took place in April 2011. Actions take place in an invented world that has much in common with the Middle Ages in Europe. The plot shows several stories and main characters at once, but the main idea of the series is still to show the struggle taking place for the Iron Throne, which will allow the victorious to become the lord of the seven kingdoms. Another interesting point of the story is that it does not clearly spell out positive or negative heroes. This suggests that each character made many reckless decisions over the course of 9 seasons, which do not make it possible to give a clear characteristic to each of them.
Also in the series, long-disappeared creatures are shown - dragons, and the lords of night and cold. Among other things, pre-existing languages Valyrian and Dothraki were developed specifically for this project.
Do you know what, such a crazy wait for a new series? Especially when the studio reschedules the film adaptation date, which only more heated the viewer's interest. This is how you can describe the feelings of fans of the series about a magical, but the very dark world.
In the beginning, reviews left by most film critics left much to be desired. They noted an excessive number of adaptations of scenes of violence and lust, not normative texts, as well as an excess of scenes of a sexual nature. But even this did not affect daily resurgent interest. The series was awarded more than 40 different awards.
Also, series brought frantic popularity to the cast, many of which before was not much known to anyone.
The last season was filmed in May 2019. It so shocked and discouraged fans that it caused a wave of discontent. Moreover, fans gathered an approximately 2 million petition, demanding a complete change in the ending. But, unfortunately, no information about the changes has appeared on the network.
Each of us witnessed at least one case when a long-abandoned series was decided to bring back to life. In 2018, Casey Bloys (president of HBO programming) announced that there was no chance of a continuation of the series. We all hope that their views will be changed.
Even if the Game of Thrones Season 9 release date may be never be disclosed, we will live with hope in our hearts.
