HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 won’t bring forth any fire or blood until spring 2015, but that doesn’t prevent us from using “The Sight” to look ahead. The network has seemingly launched a new viral teaser campaign for season 5, revealing a few brief looks at Arya in the new season, as well as…some other stuff. Maybe. I don’t know, it’s weird.
We’ve known for some time that Telltale Games would mount their take on HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones,’ complimenting their acclaimed adaptations of ‘The Walking Dead’ comics and even ‘Back to the Future,’ and at last the first trailer for “Iron From Ice” has arrived, with a twist. Not only does Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) herself narrate, but so too will Peter Dinklage and more from the ‘Game of Thrones’ cast reprise their roles!
Of all the myriad details leaked from ‘Game of Thrones‘ season 5, perhaps the most simultaneously surprising and expected is that of Charles Dance’s return to the role of Tywin Lannister. And while the show’s introduction of flashbacks might craft any number of returns for the fallen Lannister patriarch, Dance himself has confirmed details of the character’s reappearance.
'Game of Thrones' season 5 has increasingly proven itself the most book-divergent yet, but that didn't detract from the surprise of Kristian Nairn (Hodor!) candidly confirming that he and Bran wouldn't feature into the new run of episodes beginning in 2015. Now, showrunners have confirmed that Isaac Hempstead-Wright's Bran Stark will sit out 'Game of Thrones' season 5, offering an explanation as to why.
With season five of 'Game of Thrones' still months away and the sixth book in George R.R. Martin's 'A Song of Ice and Fire' still a big question mark, fans of Westeros and its merry cast of murderers, assassins, knights, kings and wildlings are probably hoping for something (anything!) to occupy their time. Enter 'A World of Ice and Fire,' one of the coolest companion books you will ever see.
'Game of Thrones' has drawn plenty of additional buzz in season 5 diverging from its literary roots, but those worried about the HBO fantasy drama's future can rest assured for at least a few years. Not only has the series officially been renewed through a sixth season in 2016, but is principle stars have now signed through season 7 as well.
Dear all other hosts of late night: if you were hoping to somehow sang the 'Game of Thrones' demographic by bringing stars of the hit HBO series on to your stage for a friendly chat, you're going to have to do much, much more than that now. Seth Meyers has bested you in a big way.
Everything we've seen and heard of 'Game of Thrones' season 5 thus far has suggested that the 2015 run of HBO's George R.R. Martin-adapted fantasy drama will be the most book-divergent yet, and with so much ground to cover, a number of stories and characters have already fallen by the wayside. Will the same fate befall the Iron Islands, and the important Greyjoy subplots featured throughout Martin's novels?
Though 'Game of Thrones' has always been kept under lock and key with its international production, season 5 shooting has given way to a multitude of new looks at the 2015 run, which looks to be the most book-divergent yet. Season 5 will also mark our first major trip to the kingdom of Dorne, so take a revealing look at the famed "Sand Snakes," as well as a spoilery meeting of characters new and old!
