Winter is coming. It’s the phrase bookmarking dozens of Game of Thrones conversations, the motto for the Stark family itself, and now the fans anxious for bane of Season 7. A new interview sees showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss confirming Game of Thrones Season 7 will both shoot, and likely premiere later than usual, owing partially to a need for more wintery landscapes.

Plenty of actors have missed out on Game of Thrones over the years, but rarely does the billion-dollar dragon saga lack the funding to cast its notable names. Such was apparently the case for revered actor Brian Cox, who turned down a role early in the series, a decision he now regrets (but still wants to be paid handsomely for).
The “Battle of the Bastards” may be behind us, but Ser Davos’ fighting days are far from over when Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres. Some new photos see actor Liam Cunningham undergoing some bareknuckle (bare finger stump?) training from UFC fighter Conor McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh, just as The Mountain before him.
Whether or not Game of Thrones’ big “Battle of the Bastards” served any purpose but to unseat Ramsay Bolton, there’s no arguing the technical wizardry of the HBO drama’s first proper battle. And while we’ve gotten a few insights into production, check out the vast layering of FX shots in a new reel, to place soldier after soldier after giant after horse into one frame.
If the Golden Globes can reward Lady Gaga, surely ScreenCrush can recognize TV’s best too, right? Right? By gum, we’re going to try.
Game of Thrones’ recent finale didn’t quite leave us with the kind of mystery that drove anticipation for Season 6, though at least one major paternal twist seems to have spurred fan investigation anew. So much so, in fact, that even Siri appears to have been sworn to secrecy by HBO.
Moreso than ever, Game of Thrones Season 6 seemed to pay off years of fanservice and speculation, particularly the finale reveal of what appeared to be Jon Snow’s origin. Well, half of it anyway. Now that we know who Jon Snow’s mother is, cast and crew seem to confirm that the father will (somewhat) remain a mystery for Season 7.
Game of Thrones keeps historically vague through San Diego appearances, but will Comic-Con 2016 break the mold? Fresh off Season 6, the HBO drama sets its official Comic-Con 2016 panel plans, joining others like Silicon Valley, Vice Principals and Cinemax’s Outcast, but where’s Westworld in all of this?
Any ‘Game of Thrones’ fan knows religion is a major facet of the series. We’ve heard characters named drop the Old Gods and the New time and time again. We’ve seen the weirwood trees. We’ve watched Melisandre stare into the flames seeking signs from her Red God. But in Season 6 the gods played their most prominent role in the show’s narrative yet.
Game of Thrones fans are still flying blind when it comes to the number of episodes remaining in the series, but with Season 7 production already gearing up, our first directors have arrived. Not only will fan-favorite Alan Taylor return to the fold, but also the fulltime influence of costume designer Michele Clapton, and more!
