Game of Thrones, aka GOT, is an American Fantasy Drama Television Series. It airs on HBO. We saw the series premiere for the first time on April 17, 2011, nine years ago. The series has been adapted from a popular novel. The novel is titled “A Song of Ice and Fire” and is written by George R.R. Martin. As the novel’s title suggests, the series mostly involves winter and ice themes. Characters fight like warriors for their throne and life. The audience loves the show for its story, action, and the popular rhetoric it has to offer.
D.B. Weiss and David Benioff are the creators of this drama series. The show has successfully hosted eight seasons so far. In these eight seasons, we have followed three story arcs. What are these story arcs? How have they contributed to the general appeal? And finally, will the series be ever renewed for Season 9? Let’s find out the answer to these questions and more in this article.
Game of Thrones Story Decoded
One of the story arcs of the action drama series is set within the kingdoms of Westeros. In these kingdoms, various houses and Families fight for power among themselves. Their purpose is to establish military and political stronghold. This will help them make worthy the all-important Iron Throne.
The second arc in the series follows the rise of Daenerys Targaryen. Who is this Daenerys? People believe her to be the only surviving descendant of the old dynasty, which was disposed of. Naturally, for Daenerys, she embarks on a journey to reclaim her lost throne. The audience witnesses her on this epic journey as she struggles to get back what is rightfully hers in this second story arc.
The third story arc deals with Night’s Watch. It’s not the watch which shows what time it is. It is essentially the name of the group that ‘man the boundaries’ of Westeros. The team lives on the mission to keep the White Walkers out of the land of the living. Again a catchy name: ‘White Walkers.’ Who are they? Obviously, not your friend. They are zombie-like creatures who are on the solo mode to kill or get killed. Still a catchy name?
So these are three basic story arcs that span the whole American-action drama series. Over the seasons, we have seen how these three-story arcs have nurtured and grown in the field of fantasy. Currently, we are at a stage where winter is almost here. The ‘White Walker’ army has breached Westeros. The Night’s Watch has failed in its mission, at least for the time being. Now, the story has gone beyond infighting and breach of localities. It now a battle between the living and the end. There is no room for cowards.
