Second season of Game of Thrones establishes series as the most-watched series on HBO Canada, The Movie
Network and Movie Central
TORONTO, June 1, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Will Jon Snow escape the clutches
of the wildings? Will Daenerys be reunited with her dragons? Can Theon
maintain his unholy grip on Winterfell? These are among the many
questions going into the highly anticipated second-season finale of Game of Thrones on Sunday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET/MT on HBO Canada, a multiplex of Corus Entertainment's Movie Central (Western Canada) and Astral's The Movie Network (Eastern Canada).
The second season of Game of Thrones is the most-watched series to date on HBO Canada. Game of Thrones has also broken all series viewership records on Movie Central and The
Movie Network, which carried HBO programming until the launch of the
dedicated HBO Canada channel in 2008. The Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning series has been renewed by HBO for a third season.
Last Sunday's stunning Battle of Blackwater, penned by author George
R.R. Martin, pitted Baratheon against Lannister in a long-awaited clash
for the Iron Throne that exploded in a blaze of wildfire. With one
family claiming victory, much uncertainty remains. In the finale
episode: King Joffrey doles out rewards to his subjects; Theon stirs
his men to action; Luwin offers some final advice; Brienne silences
Jaime; Arya receives a gift from Jaqen; Dany goes to a strange place;
and Jon proves himself to Qhorin.
