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.

Like it or not, Game of Thrones only has two seasons left. We might get a spinoff series of some nature once it ends, but the story and the characters we’ve been following for the past six years are going away for good.
So what are we supposed to do while we wait for season 7? What universe are we supposed to get lost in every weekend and spend the entire week discussing with our friends and colleagues? Don’t worry — HBO is on the case once again.
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.
July was a very busy month in the realm of politics. Not only did we see a Republican National Convention, a Democratic National Convention and a significant post-convention bounce for both candidates, but we also saw Jon Stewart return to television for the first time in ages on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show.
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 →
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 →
This year’s Game of Thrones season is slowly coming to an end. The season finale airs on Sunday and it will hopefully bring resolutions to several matters that have not been resolved. Sure, the Battle of the Bastards episode was one of the best this season, but there are plenty of other things happening in Westeros and Essos that need to be further explained. While we wait for the last episode of season 6 to hit HBO, we can confirm that one popular theory related to the most recent events in Game of Thrones has been officially shot down. Before we tell you what it is, you should be aware that major spoilers follow below. So don’t read any further unless you’ve already seen the first nine episodes of this season. More →
Last week’s Game of Thrones episode brought us one of the most ambitious battles in the series, a fight between bastards that reached epic proportions. Sure, there are some holes in the plot, but the resulting action is simply spectacular. HBO pulled out all the stops on this one to offer the viewer a glimpse of what it’s like to experience a medieval battle.
A behind-the-scenes video explaining how HBO creators and director imagined and shot the battle reveals that it’s not all computer-generated imagery. Sure, CGI was used for plenty of special effects including effects not seen before in the series, but many of the brilliant scenes in the ninth episode of season 6 were shot using actors, horses, and real props. Mind you, major spoilers are about to follow, so avoid the clip if you haven’t seen Sunday’s Battle of the Bastards episode yet.
