With Game of Thrones Season 2 now over fans have a whole year to wait until Season 3 airs, but the impending wait may be softened today by the fact Amazon has made Season 2 available to pre-order on DVD and Blu-ray.
No release date has been set and no special features have been revealed, but HBO will likely replicate the release window of Season 1 so we can expect a March 2013 release date for Season 2 (ahead of the show returning in April).
The pre-order links from Amazon are below:
As well as the returning cast, Season 2 also starred Gwendoline Christie as the female warrior Brienne of Tarth, Liam Cunningham as the former smuggler Ser Davos Seaworth, Oliver Ford Davies as Maester Cressen, Stephen Dillane as would-be king and Robert’s brother, Stannis Baratheon, and Carice van Houten as Melisandre of Asshai.
Game of Thrones has been averaging 10.3 million viewers per episode this season in the US (including DVR, HBO Go, and HBO on Demand), and is the most pirated show of 2012 with over 25 million downloads this year, which just shows how much demand there is for the series based on the best-selling “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels by George R.R. Martin.
