Python IMDbPY – Getting cover URL of the series

  • Last Updated : 10 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the cover url of the series, cover url is basically a url which when open show the cover image of the series, cover image is the front or we can say the poster of 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. As this object will act as dictionary therefore we have to filter the object
3. Get the main data of object with the help of data method which will return dictionary
4. Get the cover url details from the dictionary

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)
  
# getting cover url of the series
cover = series.data['cover url']
  
# printing the object i.e name
print(series)
  
# print the cover
print(cover)

Output :



Money Heist
