Game of Thrones is an American fantasy television series based on the novel Song of Ice and Fire by American writer George Martin. The series is being shot for the HBO cable channel under the leadership of David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. The television series is shot in several countries, including the United Kingdom (Northern Ireland), Malta, Croatia, Iceland and Morocco. The premiere of the first season in the United States took place on HBO on April 17, 2011; at the beginning of 2017, six seasons were fully shown. The premiere of the seventh season took place on July 16, 2017. The series is planned to be completed by the eighth season, which will be released in 2018 or 2019. In Russia, the series is dubbed by Kravets-Records studio by order of the Amedia film company (all six seasons were duplicated and broadcast by REN TV channel) and broadcast on Amedia Premium, Amedia Hit and Fox channels, as well as in the Amediateka online service.

The action of the Game of Thrones takes place in a fictional world reminiscent of medieval Europe, but the seasons in this world last for several of our years. The series begins at the end of a long summer. In the series, many characters act simultaneously and several storylines connected to each other develop. One of them is devoted to the struggle of several influential families over the throne of the kingdom; the other is about the attempts of the impoverished order, guarding the ancient Wall in the north of the country, to confront a supernatural threat from the outside; the third is about the journey of the exiled princess through the countries of the east in attempts to find allies for herself to return to her homeland and conquer the Iron Throne. There are fantastic creatures in the series: dragons and undead. The series is characterized by the absence of strictly positive characters, many heroes commit ambiguous acts and may die on the screen unexpectedly for the viewer. The series addresses issues of politics, religion, civil war, the status of women in society, crime and punishment. Especially for the series, several artificial languages were developed, in particular the pre-Thracian language.

The television series received high reviews from the audience, becoming one of the largest budget projects on modern American television and the most expensive in the fantasy genre, despite the fact that many critics negatively reacted to the excess in the series of profanity, violently naturalistic killings, and numerous erotic scenes and hints of a sexual nature.

Around the Game of Thrones an extensive fan community has sprung up. The series has received many prestigious awards, including a total of 38 prime time Emmy awards in various categories, three times the Hugo Prize for Best Performance, as well as the Peabody Prize. The awards were also received by the actors participating in the television series - for example, Peter Dinklage, who played the role of Tirion Lannister in the series, was twice awarded the Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actor and the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor.

The plot is based on a series of novels by George Martin, "Song of Ice and Fire." Each book of heptalogy - of the planned seven books at the beginning of 2017 - five is published - corresponds to one season of the series. However, the third novel of the saga - “Storm of Swords” - is divided into 2 seasons, the third and fourth, respectively. The fourth and fifth novels of the saga - "Feast of the Vultures" and "Dance with the Dragons" - are the basis of the fifth season of the series. The sixth novel of the saga - “Winds of Winter” - is also divided into 2 seasons, the sixth and seventh (adapts with the last novel of the saga), respectively. The final seventh novel of the saga - "Dream of Spring" - is also divided into 2 seasons, the seventh (adapts with the penultimate novel of the saga) and the eighth, respectively. The penultimate novel of the saga called “Winds of Winter” at the time of 2017 is not yet completed and can be published after the seventh season in 2017, and the last novel of the saga called “Dream of Spring” will be published after the last season of the series “Game of Thrones” .

The first season of the television series is an exact adaptation of the first novel of the book series "A Song of Ice and Fire." Starting from the second season of the television series, differences from books appear, and starting from the fifth season, the storylines in the series diverge significantly from the book ones due to the fact that some characters from the book cycle are absent, and the series also contains original material that is not in the book series “Song of Ice” and Fire. " According to David Benioff, the television series is "an adaptation of the book series as a whole, as well as following the route set by George Martin, but the creators of the series do not always go the same way as Martin."

The action of the television series takes place against the backdrop of political intrigue and, later, the civil war in the struggle for power over a fictional state called the Seven Kingdoms. Former Stormlands ruler Robert Baratheon, usurper king of the Seven Kingdoms, asks his old friend Eddard Stark to become his new Hand - the main adviser. Lord of the North.
