Winter is coming…this spring. Anticipation for the third season of HBO’s wildly popular fantasy series Game of Thrones began just seconds after season two came to an end, and now the network has announced the season three premiere date with a crafty teaser poster. We know that the upcoming 10-episode season will cover roughly the first half of George R.R. Martin’s third book in the “Song of Ice and Fire” series, A Storm of Swords, and Irish actor Ciarán Hinds (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) portrays the highly anticipated Mance Rayder (aka “The King Beyond the Wall”). I’m plenty thrilled to delve back into the Game of Thrones world, so March 31st can’t get here soon enough.
