In this article we will see how we can get the episodes of the series. 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.

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. Get the episodes from the dictionary

Below is the implementation




# 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("==================")
  
# printing episodes
print(episodes)

Output :
