The first episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones was a remarkable piece of television that showed the world that it was actually possible to make a TV show out of George R.R. Martin’s sprawling fantasy epic. However, things didn’t always look as good as they did in the final product, as the show’s creators recently revealed a podcast called Scriptnotes that’s hosted by screenwriters John August and Craig Mazin.

Jon Snow still is the hottest Game of Thrones topic, but as we get closer to Season 6 more interesting details have begun to pop up. For example, Sansa Stark, who’s had a rough time so far, is going to have her “best season yet,” and we can’t be more excited. After all, it’s time for her to prove she’s a Stark. More →
On Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, Lena Headey, who you might more readily know as Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones, participated in a pretty funny bit where she read actual insults that were hurled from contestants on ABC’s The Bachelor. Though perhaps not as recognizable with a shorter haircut and black hair, Headey immediately brought Cersei to life and showed of her impressive acting chops once she picked up a goblet filled with “wine” and got deep into character.
Is Jon Snow dead, or isn’t he? Is he coming back to life in Game of Thrones Season 6? These are burning questions every fan of the series probably has, although we feel like they’ve been thoroughly answered so far. Yes, Snow is dead by the hand of his fellow Night’s Watch men. But yes, he’s returning to Season 6, and there’s plenty of evidence saying that he is.
More interesting is the fact that Kit Harington gave an interview on the matter – a rare occurrence following Snow’s death – in which he talked about Game of Thrones and told fans that he won’t return to next season. More →
Watch: The Mountain from ‘Game of Thrones’ carries two fridges on his back and sets a new world record
You may not be familiar with the name Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson, but if you’re a seasoned Game of Thrones viewer, you’ve undoubtedly seen his work. After all, Björnsson is extremely hard, if not impossible, to miss.
Standing 6’9 and weighing in at nearly 400 pounds, Björnsson was cast as Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane during the show’s fourth season, a character he reprised during the show’s most recent fifth season.
The sixth season of Game of Thrones is coming in late April, but what happens after that? Given that the show is going to start differing significantly from the framework set out by author George R.R. Martin in his books, it will have significant freedom to go its own direction even though it will still follow a very rough outline that Martin has provided. And now it looks like the creative team behind the Game of Thrones TV series think they have enough good material to last at least another two seasons, a new report from The Hollywood Reporter reveals.

George R.R. Martin confirms that ‘Game of Thrones’ season 6 will air before upcoming book is finished
Fans of the Game of Thrones books will have to wait even longer than expected for the series’ next installment, “The Winds of Winter”, to hit store shelves. Over the weekend, author George R.R. Martin said that he unfortunately failed to meet his deadline to finish the upcoming book by December 31.
As a result, the upcoming sixth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones will begin airing before the new book is available. In turn, the upcoming season of GOT will cover material that’s still being written; an odd turn of events, to say the least.
After ending on somewhat of a cliffhanger earlier this year, the wait for the next season of Game of Thrones has been especially difficult for fans of the HBO show. The fate of Jon Snow is the one thing that has kept viewers on the edge of their seats since the finale aired in June, but there’s another character who longtime fans are just as curious about.

Surprising absolutely no one, Game of Thrones has once again taken the top honor in the yearly pirated TV show rankings. Over the weekend, TorrentFreak compiled a list of the most frequently pirated shows throughout 2015, and despite the fact that there are network shows with bigger audiences than Game of Thrones, it’s still at the top of the list.

Winter is coming… and that sadly means we still have to wait a few more months until the new season of Game of Thrones premieres. HBO is trying to satiate our appetites until then by releasing an agonizingly short teaser video that doesn’t feature any new footage but does seem to focus a lot on Jon Snow. More →
