As we’ve already reported, winter is coming a bit late next year. The season change on Game of Thrones means production had to be delayed, which means season 7 can’t start airing until summer (instead of spring as usual). But showrunners D.B.

We’ve already covered what we learned from the panel, including how history inspired “Battle of the Bastards” and why Sansa Stark withheld certain crucial information from a certain ally. Now we’re happy to share with you some of what we saw, namely a Game of Thrones season 6 blooper reel and a Game of Thrones season 7 tease. Watch them below. Read More »

Season 6’s “Battle of the Bastards” was unquestionably one of the most thrilling hours Game of Thrones has ever done, tense and tragic and action-packed, with a dramatic last-minute twist to boot. But it also opened up some questions that still have fans scratching their head — mainly, why Sansa opted to withhold a certain crucial bit of information from a trusted ally.
At the Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel today, actress Sophie Turner finally offered her take on Sansa’s actions — as well as some intriguing speculation about what’s next for the Starks. Major spoilers for the most recent season follow. Read More »

Winter has finally arrived in Westeros, and that means we won’t get to swing by there again until summer. HBO has announced that Game of Thrones season 7 will debut in summer 2017 — not spring, as in years past — and that it’ll consist of seven episodes instead of the usual ten.
