Game of Thrones showrunners seemed finally to have gotten their wish that UFC fighter Conor McGregor would put in a cameo appearance, and we may yet have more proof. Not only are UFC heads confirming the part, but we also know that McGregor’s role left him speechless.

Although his watch had since ended on the series, Game of Thrones fans no doubt remember the inimitable Peter Vaughan, actor behind the wise and enigmatic Maester Aemon. Word now comes that the actor has passed away at age 93, following a distinguished career that also includes the U.K.’s Porridge and Citizen Smith.
Now that we’ve finally gotten a first look at Game of Thrones Season 7 footage, it’s worth wondering if the final two years will continue the tradition of famous cameos. One report in particular suggests that UFC favorite Conor McGregor might be getting his hands dirty, but how credible is the rumor?
Game of Thrones may be debuting later in 2017 than usual, but our first look at Season 7 is right on schedule. Check out the newest official footage, as HBO’s 2017 preview reveals Arya becoming a Northern girl once more!
As if the ability to watch Netflix offline weren’t enough, soon all your streaming options will change the way you watch TV. Amazon seems to be keeping plenty competitive as well, now adding the option to include HBO or Cinemax to its Prime subscription, albeit for a price.
How young we once were, to wonder whether George R.R. Martin’s The Winds of Winter might arrive in stores early enough to avoid Game of Thrones Season 6 spoiling Jon Snow’s fate. The two Song of Ice and Fire tales have long-since diverged, but does Martin have a 2017 plan to get Winds of Winter out before Season 7?
Whatever holiday you celebrate in December, it comes with a lot of pressure. If you get that special someone the wrong gift, watch out. Things can get pretty ugly. That’s particularly true for pop-culture fans. They know what they want, and they probably have most of it already. Perhaps you know someone like this. Perhaps you are someone like this. (Perhaps I am someone like this.)
Game of Thrones isn’t the type to lend itself to wide conspiracies in the same manner as Westworld, but that hasn’t stopped more than a few persistent possibilities turning the rumor mill. Season 6 in particular saw one uncomfortable rumor dogging Sansa, one it seems Season 7 is putting to rest well-ahead of schedule.
Game of Thrones has long had its own line of beers for fans to celebrate with, and it seems crazier than a Mad King to be without an official wine. No longer, as a Santa Rosa winery will bring us three different varieties for every generation of Lannister to poison themselves with, some more quickly than others.
Even as they seem to do it every year, it’s hard to imagine Game of Thrones topping this past season’s “Battle of the Bastards” for memorable action sequences. At the very least, revisit the scene from every angle, as a new Blu-ray featurette shows Kit Harington filming that famous one-shot.
