Distracted thought we are by every clue toward Jon Snow’s return, Game of Thrones fans remain uneasy at the prospect of further depictions of sexual violence, and disproportionate misfortune for female characters. A prior Game of Thrones director even suggested producers had heard concerns, and would tone down sexual violence in Season 6, but not so, say showrunners. What fun!

Oh, Kit Harington, you unfortunate fellow. Oh, Jon Snow, you poor bastard. Harington’s suffering is nearly at an end, that Game of Thrones Season 6’s April 24 premiere will (hopefully) unveil the Jon Snow mystery we’ve spent so much time scrutinizing, and there may yet be a turn. Harington has admitted his return as a corpse, but new comments seemingly confirm the Game of Thrones star will feature into at least several Season 6 episodes.
April’s going to be a tough month for most TV premieres to command any attention, but Amy Schumer would rather join them, than beat them. The Comedy Central star goes Game of Thrones for the latest Inside Amy Schumer Season 4 tease, Jon Snow spoilers beware.
Following a few weeks’ rest, SNL will spring ahead with Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage making his first official hosting turn, and you know what spring means: Winter is coming. You know, eventually. In a roundabout sense. Anyway, the first official promos are here!
It’s a sorer point with each passing year, but Game of Thrones has never been particularly kind to even its most powerful women, despite author George R.R. Martin’s insistence on the fantasy series reflecting certain medieval realities. That said, Emilia Clarke has had enough of the HBO drama being labeled “anti-feminist,” pointing out that Game of Thrones depicts women of all strengths.
Game of Thrones will no doubt prove pretty judicious when it comes to Season 6 footage after the initial trailer, and the latest trailer stands as proof. There’s no more Jon Snow to stoke the fire, but the latest look at Season 6 interjects a giant or two among plenty of new footage for the April premiere, including that mysterious Night’s King.
Where yesterday’s Game of Thrones photos seemed almost deliberately to recreate Season 5 looks, a new batch expands on what we’ve seen from Season 6. There’s blind Arya, a seemingly struggling Bran, and another clue into what Daenerys will face from her new/old Dothraki friends.
Game of Thrones has been less than kind to even the strongest of female characters over the years, and if a new report is to be believed, Season 6 might finally see the women of Westeros come out ahead. New Entertainment Weekly covers reveal the six major heroines of the new season, some looking far better off than we last left them.
Game of Thrones has seemingly already advanced to a point that odds and ends of George R.R. Martin’s as-yet-unpublished novels have perhaps been spoiled, while Season 6 stands to answer some of the series’ biggest questions ahead of readers. Not so, perhaps, as showrunners claim Season 6 won’t actually spoil the books, and is instead “quite divergent.”
Game of Thrones Season 6 will feature plenty of major battles on the human side, but as the old saying goes, “Winter is definitely right around the corner, and maybe some scary-face guys too?” Or something. Any who, see said scary-face guys for yourself in new Season 6 featurette on Game of Thrones’ prosthetics, along with a tiny tease of where the Night’s King might strike next.
