April is coming, and with it, Game of Thrones‘ new season!
To up the ante, (again!), HBO has released stills from the upcoming season of the multiple Emmy-winning series.
These stills include on-camera and behind-the-scenes pictures of GoT’‘s most loved and loathed characters, including a white-eyed Arya Stark, blinded as punishment in the closing scenes of season 5, reports.
The highly-anticipated sixth season of the popular series will be based on George R R Marin’s sixth book The Winds of Winter, that has kept fans waiting for a long time.
These stills confirm the return of famous characters including Arya, Daenerys Targaryen and Tyrion Lannister. However, there are no signs of Jon Snow, who was last seen bleeding out in the snow after being betrayed by his own men.
The readers are hopeful to see Yara Greyjoy and her father Balon’s return, a story arc spelled out in Martin’s last two books, A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons, involving their seafaring family, more prominently in season 6.
The new season will be aired April 25. Here’s a glimpse into the Game of Thrones world and what lies ahead:
Jaime Lannister, who was last seen in Dome, may have revenge on his mind.
Daenerys Targaryen senses danger for empire.
Tyrion Lannister and Varys will be seen in administrative roles managing Daenerys’ empire in her absence.
