The cast of the Game of Thrones season two includes:

 The cast members of this new season include a lot of returning characters such as Robb Stark, Jon Snow, and Arya Stark who all have their own storylines to follow in addition to Tywin Lannister’s storyline which will be played by Charles Dance. New faces on the show are Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell) and Stephen Dillane (Stannis Baratheon), both playing people with at least some claim to the Iron Throne that would like nothing better than taking power from those already sitting there such as Joffrey or even Tyrion should he succeed his father. Other newcomers include Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark, Jack Gleeson as King Joffrey Baratheon, and Carice van Houten as Melisandre.


The show is scheduled to premiere on April 17, 2011, at 11:00 pm ET/PT on HBO.

Expected release dates for other countries include Singapore (April 18), Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand (April 19), and finally Spain with a one-day delay from America’s date which will be April 20th.

About the new season include that many things:

the new season includes that many things have changed in Westeros since last year including Jon Snow coming to Winterfell with news from Vale while Arya goes exploring at Harrenhal. There is a new villain in the form of Tywin Lannister.

This new season should have many exciting twists as well as surprises! In this article, we’ll talk about what can expect from this new season including cast members, details about it such as when it’s premiering or what’s happening now that the first episode aired last night all across the world, and the ratings it has received so far.


The season covers roughly the first half of George R.R Martin’s novel “A Clash of Kings”. This is because the second book in his series “A Storm of Swords” will not be published until March 2012 when Game Of Thrones Season Three starts. With this being said, it does seem like a lot can happen to all these characters over that period so there should still be plenty for viewers to enjoy before the next season comes out.

Ratings and Reaction from Viewers:

It has been noted by many critics including the New York Times’s Alessandra Stanley that Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel “The Handmaid’s Tale” “seems to have found its successor in Game of Thrones”.

This is because the series’ complex, violent, and often the sexual world can be seen as a warning tale. The Handmaid’s Tale also features women being forced into child-bearing servitude by men who see them as lesser beings. It tackles issues like racism, slavery and religious fanaticism with just as much gusto as Games Of Thrones does today but it never shows graphic images.

It has been noted that while viewers are shocked when they watch scenes containing explicit violence or nudity on screen, these moments do not compare to those where “characters make deals with devils for power.”

I think this says enough about the show so far; I am looking forward to what will happen to my favorite characters next season.


I am very excited for the new Game of Thrones Season two release date on April 14th and I will be looking forward to it every week with bated breath!
