Game of Thrones online portal Winter Is Coming is speculating this morning on rumors that the HBO series adaptation of George R. R. Martin's fantasy series will begin production on a second season, covering A Clash of Kings, very soon.
The site, which has been dutifully following the filming of Game of Thrones, cites already existing rumors, as well as reports from actors and writers already secured for a second season. From the post:
Now we are hearing word that a second season will go into production very soon after season one wraps. This sounds similar to info we have from writer Bryan Cogman, who mentioned that the plan is for them to immediately begin scripting and planning for season two.
The post continues to speculate on how this would fit into HBO's schedule. (Fittingly, during the winter months.) If true, this would mean that fans of the Song of Ice and Fire series would get two seasons of the show in 2011.
