A few days ago, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams who plays Arya on the show said that “nothing will prepare” us for season 7, without revealing any other details about it. She did say on Twitter that she had finished reading the script for HBO’s next Thrones season. In an extensive interview about her character, her experience on the set and the fact that she’s nominated for an Emmy, Williams further explained why fans have to deal with the fact that Game of Thrones is ending soon, and why it’s perfectly okay to have a shorter season next year.

Seven months. That’s how long we expected to have to wait for the seventh season of Game of Thrones. Unfortunately, thanks to the fact that winter has finally descended upon Westeros, we’re going to have to wait a bit longer to see what happens to all of our favorite characters on TV’s most pirated show.
Thankfully, it sounds like season 7 will be worth the wait.
Even though Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss previously hinted that HBO’s award-winning series only had about 15 or so episodes left, HBO over the weekend confirmed that the beloved fantasy drama will draw to a final and likely bloody conclusion after season 8.
Speaking at the Television Critics Association’s press tour this Saturday, HBO’s new chief of programming Casey Bloys said that HBO will not seek to extend the show beyond what Weiss and Benioff currently envision.
Living in New York, it’s not very often that I pine for the cold embrace of winter. But after learning that Game of Thrones would be starting later than usual next year, I can’t help but shake my fist at the sun every time I leave my apartment.
We’re going to have to wait almost a full year before we get to return to Westeros for the start of Game of Thrones season 7, but at least in the interim HBO is doing its best to keep us entertained.
There are two categories of Game of Thrones people: those who have seen every episode and can’t get enough of it, and those who haven’t seen any of them but have had enough of it. Whether you’re a Game of Thrones veteran or you’re avoiding the show at all costs, you simply have to watch the following video. It’s almost eight minutes of pure Samuel L. Jackson awesomeness, as he explains everything that has happened on Game of Thrones so far. More →
The finale for the sixth season of Game of Thrones might have been the most eventful episode in the show’s history, but that makes it all the more difficult to cope with the fact that we won’t see any new episodes until next spring.
It’s going to be an excruciating wait, but one fan decided to help ease the pain by putting together short, tightly edited supercuts of some of the main characters.
Last summer, the main topic of conversation for Game of Thrones fans was Jon Snow’s upcoming resurrection. The closer we got to winter, the clearer it became that Jon Snow wasn’t dead. This year we’ve got yet another Jon Snow-related conundrum: who is Jon Snow? HBO closed its sixth season with a clear hint that Jon Snow is the son of Lyanna Stark. Then, out of the blue, it confirmed an old fan theory that Lyanna and Rhaegar Targaryen are his parents.
So the next thing we need to talk about is Jon Snow’s real name. Thankfully, a diehard Game of Thrones fan has a sound theory about that. More →
Episode 9 of the just-ended Game of Thrones season 6 is titled Battle of the Bastards, and it featured one of the best battles ever seen on the TV show, and perhaps one of the greatest action scenes in TV history. The following short video will show you some of the amazing special effects used in the episode – but beware, because major spoilers lie ahead if you haven’t already seen the episode.
Even if you’re not watching Game of Thrones, you probably know the sixth season of HBO’s top TV show to date has just ended, and what a massive season finale that was. That said, HBO’s story isn’t done, and Game of Thrones showrunners still have a good 15 hours of storytelling to do, which will be spread across two new seasons. But HBO already inadvertently – or maybe intentionally – told everyone who Jon Snow’s parents are well ahead of the upcoming season. Beware, major spoilers follow below. More →
The sixth season of Game of Thrones just wrapped up, with the 60th overall episode of the series having been a glorious season finale — likely one of the best episodes in the entire series. Fans are eagerly waiting to see what’s going to happen next, but season 7 won’t debut until next year. And HBO showrunners confirmed what we already feared: There are just 15 episodes left in the series at most, meaning season 7 and season 8 will have less than 10 episodes each. More →
Wow, simply wow! If you haven’t seen the grand finale of Game of Thrones’ season 6, drop whatever you’re doing and watch it. It’s one of the best episodes of the entire show, and probably the best in the season, although episode 9 will give it a run for its money. I’ll spoil this for you right here, right now: Winter is no longer “coming.” Because you knew that already. Winter is here!
Major spoilers follow below. More →
This weekend’s penultimate episode of Game of Thrones season 6 was one of the most exciting and brutal in the history of the series.
The Battle of the Bastards lived up to the hype, but until you watch some of the episode’s highlights with Ghostbusters star and SNL cast member Leslie Jones, you really haven’t experienced it.
