Game of Thrones is a very famous American drama and television show that had been created by D. B. Weiss and David Benioff. This popular show is an adaptation of the book which goes by the title, A Song of Ice and Fire and has been written by George R. R. Martin. These books are a series of fantasy novels, and the very first one is called A Game of Thrones. The HBO show has been filmed in many places like Canada, United Kingdom, Croatia, Malta, Spain, Iceland, Morocco, and also in the United States. This series had premiered on HBO in April 2011. The show’s 7th season had come to an end in August 2017, and this show is all ready to conclude by the year, 2019.
The entire show is set on Westeros and Essos. The show has many major plot lines, and they also have a huge ensemble cast and focuses on three major stories. The show’s very first story arc is about the Iron Throne of the fictional Seven Kingdoms, and it goes on to follow the alliances and conflicts between all the dynastic noble families. They are either waiting to claim this throne, or they are dying for independence from it. The show’s second arc focuses on the very last descendant of the ruling dynasty who was exiled and is now trying to return to his throne. The show’s third story focuses on the brotherhood that has been charged with defending the entire realm that is against the threats of people and legendary creatures that lie up north.
For us to say that the show, Game of Thrones is one of the biggest series on the TV right now is really no exaggeration at all.

Many fans are super sad to see this show go off air after season 8 in the year, 2019 as that will be the very last and final season of this show on HBO. With so many of their fans anticipating the fate of the characters and the end of this show it does seems like a pretty good time to now look back on almost everything that has happened in the show, Game of Thrones till now.
