We can speculate all the live-long day as to whether Jon Snow will return for Game of Thrones Season 6, but actual casting gives a much better look at 2016. Latest to join the Game of Thrones world are the rest of Samwell Tarly’s family, including Downton Abbey villain James Faulkner, Samantha Spiro and Rebecca Benson!

Just the other day, Game of Thrones favorite Emilia Clarke offered some surprising comments on her distaste for any and all sex scenes, not necessarily just those on HBO. Her words made the rounds a bit, but now the Khaleesi seems to be walking them back, claiming to be “perfectly fine” with tasteful nudity. Oh, the internet.
Mere minutes after the close of June’s stab-happy Game of Thrones finale “Mother’s Mercy,” truther movements sprung up insisting that Kit Harington’s Jon Snow would return to the series in 2016 no matter what. Repeat set sightings have confirmed the TV industry’s worst-kept secret, but might Harington himself have finally given into the speculation?
For as long as Game of Thrones has aired (and will surely continue until Season 8), the HBO adaptation courts controversy in its depiction of sex and violence, from a number of directions. Some stars have even spoken out of their distaste for the show’s visceral style, but perhaps none so directly as star Emilia Clarke, who “[doesn’t] want to have sex thrown in my face.”
While the entirety of Game of Thrones Season 6 may end up spoiled on sight alone, observation of the set often yields some strong casting choices for the season. Case in point, The Babadook star Essie Davis has been spotted filming on the Game of Thrones set, in role that should look familiar to fans.
Game of Thrones has walked a narrow tightrope on the way to Season 6, declining comment on the various Kit Harington sightings that seemingly spoil Jon Snow’s fate, while still towing the company line. Now, some incredible new rumors of a major battle could be our biggest Jon Snow break yet, as well as insight into Season 6's major plot.
Among all the great stuff hitting the small screen this fall, it may be easy to forget that Amy Schumer — comedy goddess, hilarious human, et al. — has an HBO special coming next month. The live special was directed by HBO vet Chris Rock, but judging by the first trailer for Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo that’s probably going to seem like an afterthought because Schumer is absolutely killing it. And by it we mean this bottle of wine — but also jokes!
HBO Rapture drama The Leftovers gave us an eerie sneak peek into its second season by way of a water-logged new poster yesterday, and now a new trailer lets us dive even deeper into darkness. The Garveys move to the “Jarden of Eden,” but all is not well by the new footage and photos.
Even as HBO’s The Leftovers only made a minor splash in its first season, the Damon Lindelof-drama dives deep into its second round this fall, the first without author Tom Perrotta’s original novel underscoring the plot. Deep dives may be deadly however, as the first poster for The Leftovers Season 2 eyes a watery grave for at least one lead.
