    Production will continue to be based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, as well as Croatia and Iceland. For season three, a new location has been added to the schedule: Morocco, presumably for Daenerys' (Emilia Clarke) storyline.

    Also announced by HBO are next season's directors and returning writers. Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will get behind the camera in season three to direct episodes. Alex Graves, Michelle MacLaren, Dan Minahan, David Nutter and Alik Sakharov will direct episodes as well.

    Along with Benioff and Weiss, writers returning include: Bryan Cogman, George R.R. Martin and Vanessa Taylor.

    The only thing left to know about season three is casting, which HBO claims will be announced soon. So keep waiting with bated breath, GoT fans!
