By now, Game of Thrones stars have gotten pretty good at turning the hype machine for upcoming episodes, and Season 7 is no exception. Maisie Williams is already proclaiming Season 7 as the year Game of Thrones “gets REAL,” while poor Kit Harington appears to have been denied scripts. Still exciting, though!

Game of Thrones fans have generally presumed that George R.R. Martin’s “Song of Ice and Fire” refers to an inevitable pairing between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, something the HBO adaptation has seemingly made clear with a host of parallel imagery. At least one major Season 6 reflection wasn’t intentional, however, as Kit Harington calls it a “happy accident.”
No one cheers on Game of Thrones like Jason Momoa, but the erstwhile Khal Drogo has now gone to some telling lengths to support his former co-stars. New photos place Momoa with his Game of Thrones family in Ireland, so might Drogo be back from the Night Lands once more?
Any and all of Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin’s books are essentially out the window by Season 7, but that shouldn’t stop rabid fans from casing every minor detail. To wit, the first Season 7 casting calls have gone out, so let’s speculate wildly about a priest! And a warrior! Oh, and there’s a guard! Maybe a lovely lady?
As often as anyone has come back to life on Game of Thrones, we’ve been reminded they don’t come back the same. Then again, that wasn’t immediately true of Kit Harington’s Jon Snow this past season, for which the actor admits a bit of disappointment with the script. Plus – is Jon safe for Season 7?
The fine folk at Honest Trailers rarely get into the TV game (even less often double-dipping), but suffice to say, certain series might take years to make the rotation. No longer, as all the major Emmy 2016 contenders, from The Americans to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt get their own mini trailer parodies!
Just when you’d resisted your last urge to yell at Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin to get back to work, the acclaimed author up and lands another TV series. Martin himself won’t actually be involved, but his voice will certainly be heard in a new TV adaptation of superhero universe Wild Cards.
As HBO’s Game of Thrones gears up for its seventh year, it’s easy to forget that George R.R. Martin’s first book has been around nearly three times that, as August 1, 2016 marked the official 20th anniversary. Now, Martin reacts to that momentous occasion with news of a special edition for October, and maybe … maybe, an update on Winds of Winter.
Any Game of Thrones fan has likely known for some time that Seasons 7 and 8 would mark the last for HBO’s adapted saga, though the network itself has expressed optimism for more. Now, HBO bosses dish on the plan to end with Season 8, as well what they’ve discussed with regard to a spinoff.
Game of Thrones fans will never tire of the eerie green glow behind wildfire explosions, elevating Cersei’s finale plot to the peak of iconic imagery for the series. Such a sight is unlikely repeated in what little time we have left, so watch VFX painstakingly break down every ker-ploding bit and bob, layer by later, for the explosive final result!
