Even as “Battle of the Bastards” a few surprise returns caught our fancy, Game of Thrones fans would be hard-pressed to argue Season 6 had one unforgettable breakout. Now, the series’ best new additions is confirmed to return for Season 7, bringing us one step closer to crowning the true ruler of the seven kingdoms.
It’s an annual traditional we know all too well. Spending 10 weeks enraptured by the sex, blood and drama of the Seven Kingdoms, watching our favorite characters killed off by season’s end, then finding ways to survive a whole year without ‘Game of Thrones.’ Luckily we’re only days from the Season 6 premiere, but this year will be unlike the others. Now that the series has surpassed George R.R. Martin’s books, show and book fans, as well as critics, will enter ‘Game of Thrones’ knowing as much as Jon Snow. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared; you should be very prepared.
Just a few short hours ago, HBO gave Game of Thrones fans reason to celebrate by confirming Season 6’s April premiere, but the party may not be over just yet. Sources say that HBO will soon renew Game of Thrones for both Seasons 7 and 8, potentially to close out the series.
HBO has been cranking up the Game of Thrones marketing early for Season 6, first a poster, then a trailer teasing Jon Snow’s return, and before 2015 is even out, we’ve been blessed with the first footage. See Dany’s new digs, and Cersei’s new ‘do in the first official Game of Thrones Season 6 footage!
