Even Game of Thrones’ worst villains have a tendency to get their comeuppance, and few have gone unpunished as long as David Bradley’s Red Wedding mastermind Walder Frey. Now, with Season 6 on the horizon, Bradley confirms that Walder Frey will return, but does a new casting report pinpoint the coming year?

Well, if ever we showed disappointment with Game of Thrones Season 6 snoozing its way through Comic-Con without a hint of casting, the world of Westeros is more than making up for it. On the heels of adding Ian McShane, Game of Thrones has added Star Wars star and the all-around prolific Max von Sydow to the cast, and we actually know his role!
We don’t know who Ian McShane is playing in Game of Thrones and the original announcement seemed to indicate that his role may remain a secret for at least a little while. We do know that his screen time will be limited but that “his character is of key importance.” With only those clues to go on, we can narrow this down. There are five characters that we think he can play in Game of Thrones season six.
Pardon the pun, but all the cloak and dagger mystery of Game of Thrones Season 6 just got a major shot to the gut. The 2016 return to Westeros just swore in its biggest addition yet, adding Al Swearengen himself, Deadwood alum Ian McShane for a major new role.
Anyone following Game of Thrones well knows that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss believe the George R.R. Martin-adapted series will run for seven seasons, hoping to tell the complete, unpadded story. HBO execs have long been vocal in their desire for a longer run, but according to the man at the top, Game of Thrones may now run through Season 8.
Despite everyone being more or less on an even keel now, Game of Thrones fandom has long been divided by viewers of the HBO series, and those committed to George R.R. Martin’s books. Spoilers fly in both directions, but a new official app from Martin’s Game of Thrones publisher enables TV viewers to sample the novels without fear of spoilers.
Can it really be true? Has our long international nightmare ended? In the month or so since Game of Thrones Season 5 came to an end, fans and friends alike have scoured the world for every inclination that Kit Harington’s Jon Snow would return for Season 6 from a pointy end. Now, the actor has unequivocally been spotted returning to Belfast, Ireland, home to Game of Thrones filming, but what might it mean?
Game of Thrones conspiracy theory has hit a fever pitch months before Season 6 will ever air, as fans take every possible opportunity to dissect the fate of Kit Harington’s Jon Snow. Now, the “Jon Snow Lives” truther movement might have its staunchest supporter yet, as Melisandre herself, Carice van Houten insists Jon Snow must live.
Game of Thrones conspiracy theorists won’t pipe down until 2016 (and even then, probably never), but some spoilers are only too happy to smile for the camera. Take a break from your Kit Harington hunt, and check out which slain Game of Thrones star will assuredly return for Season 6.
Finally no longer dumping the announcement at 5:30 A.M. PT, while half the critical populace sweat through Comic-Con, the 2015 Emmy nominations are here! A few major surprises and omissions, as well as some well-deserved chances at the gold, but who's up for at 2015, as presented by Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg? Let's find out!
