Based on the best-selling book series by George R.R. Martin, "Game of Thrones" is set on the exotic, often war-torn continent of Westeros. Cast regulars include Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Charles Dance and Natalie Dormer.

Sunday's season debut was seen by 6.6 million viewers, making it HBO's most-watched program since the finale of "The Sopranos" in 2007. Its audience was 50 percent larger than for last season's premiere.
