Telltale's Game of Thrones is getting a second season

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series will continue with a second season, and it's already in development, Telltale confirmed today to The Hollywood Reporter.

"When we initially announced the series in 2013, we let everyone know this would be a multi-title, multiyear partnership with HBO," said Kevin Bruner, co-founder and CEO of Telltale Games, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "After this week's finale, I'm pleased to officially confirm that there will be a second season of Telltale's Game of Thrones series and that it's currently in development."

Bruner added that a second season was in Telltale's plans from the get-go. The news will come as no surprise to anybody who has played "The Ice Dragon," the first season's finale, which was released earlier this week. The episode is heavy on cliffhangers, leaving many questions unresolved.

Asked about the fates of the members of House Forrester, Bruner said that "there is a larger story to be played out" and that — as ever in Telltale's projects — "the choices players make in season one set the stage for what's to come." He added that Telltale will continue the series' multi-character storytelling in season two. Bruner gave no timing window for the debut of the second season.
