Game of Thrones fans are no stranger to scrutinizing production and trafficking wild rumors, and HBO itself has discussed the possibility of a big-screen closer to its George R.R. Martin adaptation, but don’t start lining up just yet. Martin himself debunked the latest rumor, at least for the time being.

Boy, has Game of Thrones Season 6 had a rough day keeping things under wraps. At long last, photographic evidence has surfaced from the Ireland set, confirming what we’ve all known about our favorite fallen Night’s Watchman for months. Oh yes, ladies and gentlemen. Jon. Snow. LIVES.
The fifth season finale of Game of Thrones left both viewers and readers in the lurch, finishing the extent of published storylines for characters like Daenerys and Jon Snow. We certainly had an inkling of who next Daenerys might align with, but leaked photos from the Season 6 set seem to spoil at least one major plot point of Dany’s next storyline.
Game of Thrones had itself quite a night at the 2015 Emmy Awards, perhaps less deservedly so than some might think, but at least one aspect never fails to impress. The latest FX reel from the season pulls back the curtain on Game on Thrones’ most dragon-heavy outing yet.
The 2015 Emmy Awards have reached their biggest award of the night, and only one can win the statue. Game of Thrones has officially taken home the statue for Outstanding Drama Series, and very surprisingly so.
There were plenty of choices for dramatic Outstanding Supporting Actor at the 2015 Emmy Awards, but ol' Tyrion's luck seems to have won out again. Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage took home the Outstanding Supporting Actor in Drama award at the 2015 Emmy Awards once again, amid stiff competition.
Amid all its myriad casting, Game of Thrones most always makes room for the odd musician (or band) to cameo somewhere in Westeros. In Season 3, we saw Coldplay’s Will Champion drumming for the Red Wedding, while this past season Mastodon participated in the battle of “Hardhome,” and Season 6 will find now space for Of Monsters and Men.
We can speculate all the live-long day as to whether Jon Snow will return for Game of Thrones Season 6, but actual casting gives a much better look at 2016. Latest to join the Game of Thrones world are the rest of Samwell Tarly’s family, including Downton Abbey villain James Faulkner, Samantha Spiro and Rebecca Benson!
Just the other day, Game of Thrones favorite Emilia Clarke offered some surprising comments on her distaste for any and all sex scenes, not necessarily just those on HBO. Her words made the rounds a bit, but now the Khaleesi seems to be walking them back, claiming to be “perfectly fine” with tasteful nudity. Oh, the internet.
Mere minutes after the close of June’s stab-happy Game of Thrones finale “Mother’s Mercy,” truther movements sprung up insisting that Kit Harington’s Jon Snow would return to the series in 2016 no matter what. Repeat set sightings have confirmed the TV industry’s worst-kept secret, but might Harington himself have finally given into the speculation?
