The 6th season of HBO’s smash hit Game of Thrones premieres Sunday, April 24, 2016 9 PM EST.
Season 6, unlike previous seasons, largely consists of original content not found in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, but also adapts material from the upcoming sixth novel in the series, The Winds of Winter, as well as some content from the fourth and fifth novels, A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons.
After the events of the season 5 finale, anticipation for the latest season of Game Of Thrones is greater than ever. The finality of Jon Snow’s death has been a topic of intense speculation, as multiple fan theories, and real world reports, have suggested that Snow will be alive and well… eventually. Those real world reports include photos of Kit Harington, the actor playing Jon Snow, arriving in Belfast, where the show is largely filmed, surfacing in July 2015.
