Seasons and episodes refer to the structure of a television or streaming series. A season is a set of episodes that air or are released at the same time, usually in a specific time period (such as fall or winter). An episode is a single installment of a television or streaming series.
For example, the popular television series "Game of Thrones" has eight seasons, each with a varying number of episodes. The first season has 10 episodes, the second has 10 episodes, and so on. Each episode tells a story within the larger narrative arc of the series.
The purpose of dividing a series into seasons and episodes is to break up the storytelling into manageable chunks, allowing the audience to follow along with the story at their own pace. It also allows for a natural break in the story and can provide a sense of anticipation for the next season or episode. Additionally, it can help with scheduling, as seasons and episodes can air at specific times of the year.
