“Game of Thrones” fans, rejoice! Not only one but several characters of the show may come back in this year’s season. Possibly even fan favorite, Jon Snow.
Isaac Hempstead-Wright (a.k.a. Bran Stark) confirmed that he will return on the HBO hit series.
In an interview with Irish Examiner, Hempstead-Wright said, “I can’t say a lot, but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions.”
Vanity Fair also revealed that “GoT” creator George R.R. Martin hinted on Bran playing an important part in the final battle for the Seven Kingdoms.
Fans missed Bran in Season 5 after the character was written out of the entire season.
Now that Bran and his psychic abilities are around, the possibilities are endless. Vanity Fair added that there may be several flashbacks in Season 6. Bran’s return could also confirm “GoT” fans’ theory that there will be flashbacks of the Tower of Joy, USA Today noted.
Bran sees visions of Ned Stark and Lyanna Stark’s past in the books.
The young Stark also sees another side to the “kidnapping” of Lyanna which could hint at a possible appearance of Jon Snow (Kit Harington). Snow was seemingly stabbed to death in the Season 5 finale.
When asked if Snow will also return in the series, Hempstead-Wright didn’t confirm nor deny the character’s return.
“I wish he would because I love Kit and because the character’s so cool. Who knows? We start filming series six at the end of this month (July) so we’ll see,” the Vanity Fair wrote.
D.J. Hodor, played by Kristian Nairn, is also expected to return in “Game of Thrones” Season 6.
HBO has yet to reveal the premiere date of Season 6. “GoT” usually premieres in April except for Season 3 which kicked off on March 31, 2013.
Den of Geek predicts that Season 6 will debut on first Sunday of April 2016.
