Python IMDbPY – Getting each episode year of each season of the series

In this article we will see how we can get the year 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. Print the year of each episode

Below is the implementation

# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
  
# id
code = "6473300"
  
# 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("=========")
  
# traversing each key
for i in episodes.keys():
      
    # printing season number
    print("Season" + str(i))
      
    # traversing season i
    for j in episodes[i]:
          
        # getting year of episode
        year = episodes[i][j]['year']
          
        # printing title
        print(" Ep " + str(j) + " year : " + str(year))
