Python IMDbPY – Get each episode ID of each season of the series
  • Last Updated : 10 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the id of each episode for each season of the series from the episodes info set. Each series have seasons and each season has multiple episodes i.e episode is the subset of season and season is the subset of series. We get the episodes details by adding episodes info set to the series

In order to get this we have to do the following –

1. Get the series details with the help of get_movie method
2. Add episodes info-set to it with the of update method
3. As this object will act as dictionary therefore we have to filter the object
4. Get the main data of object with the help of data method which will return dictionary
5. Each key of episodes refer to season and each key of season refer to the episode
6. Get the id of each episode and print it

Below is the implementation




# importing the module
import imdb
  
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
  
# id
code = "6468322"
  
# getting information
series = ia.get_movie(code)
  
# adding new info set
ia.update(series, 'episodes')
  
# getting episodes of the series
episodes = series.data['episodes']
  
# printing the object i.e name
print(series)
  
print("=========")
  
# getting season
season = episodes[1]
  
# getting single episode of season
epi = season[1]
  
# getting id and prinitng it
get_id = epi.getID
  
print(get_id)

Output :



Money Heist
=========
bound method Movie.getID of <Movie id:6807344[http] title:_"Money Heist (TV Series 2017– ) - IMDb" Efectuar lo acordado (2017)_

Another example




# importing the module
import imdb
  
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
  
# id
code = "6077448"
  
# getting information
series = ia.get_movie(code)
  
# adding new info set
ia.update(series, 'episodes')
  
# getting episodes of the series
episodes = series.data['episodes']
  
# printing the object i.e name
print(series)
  
print("=========")
  
# getting season
season = episodes[1]
  
# getting single episode of season
epi = season[1]
  
# getting id and prinitng it
get_id = epi.getID
  
print(get_id)
