Just when HBO had distracted us for long enough with Westworld to make us forget about Game of Thrones, it pulls the rug out from under us. On Sunday night, HBO aired a “Coming in 2017” promo ahead of Westworld’s ninth episode — a promo featuring a few fleeting shots from Game of Thrones season 7.
Game of Thrones fans are still in for a long wait, but that doesn’t mean they’re not going to be entertained until season 7 arrives next summer. A massive leak a few days ago detailed the plot of the upcoming season, but there are more surprises in store for us.
More spoilers arrived from one of the shooting locations of the show. In case you don’t want to know anything about the huge events that HBO has planned for season 7, then avoid these spoilers at all costs. More →
Earlier this year, HBO confirmed that its hit show Game of Thrones will come to an end after its eighth season. While this undoubtedly upset the show’s gargantuan fan base, the good news is that we still have two more seasons left to go. Of course, the exact number of episodes remaining is still up in the air as showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss previously said that they’d like to put together just 15 more episodes, a plan which would result in a relatively short story arc for either season 7 or season 8.
It’s going to be a while until the first episode of season 7 airs on HBO, but the next chapter of Game of Thrones may finally bring some good news for the Starks. Beware, some spoilers follow below, so if you want to be kept in the dark then you should stop reading right now. More →
On the Emmys red carpet this year, Variety caught up with Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) to press for some previously unrevealed information about the future of HBO’s hit drama.
Considering all the heartbreak and tragedy Game of Thrones viewers have experiencing over the past six years, they probably won’t be surprised to learn that some of their favorite characters might not make it through the next season.
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 →
