There is no denying that every “Game of Thrones” aficionado is waiting for the release of Season 6 of the show. And we have been treated to a good amount of sneak-peeks as well as teasers and trailers.
But the latest word from the writer-producers may just crank the anticipation up another notch. It turns out that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have seen the almost final-cuts of the season. They sat down with Entertainment Weekly and shared that the upcoming season doesn’t feature a “weak episode” and it is the “best one” yet. Benioff shared:
“This season there is not a weak episode. We had great directors who knew what they were doing, paired with excellent [directors of photography]. We thought at the script stage it might be our strongest season.” He added, “We’re always reluctant to say it’s ‘the best season yet’ because so much of that is in the eyes of the beholder. And Dan and I are so close to it that it’s impossible to be unbiased. But that’s my sense – watching them all together now, this is the best one we’ve done. It’s also the one I’m proudest of, because it was the hardest.”
Much like everything related to “Game of Thrones,” Benioff’s words also raise a number of questions. Why exactly is the upcoming season the “hardest”? And what will be keeping us glued to our seats, this time around? But what we do know for sure is the Season 6 isn’t the last one. There are bits of information going around out there about the new season. Fans have also expressed concern over the launched of “Winds of Winter,” after the author indicated on his Livejournal that he won’t be done with the final book in the series before 2020.
But for sure, we will witness the show coming back for Season 8, as reported earlier. “Game of Thrones” Season 6 premieres on HBO on April 24. With just about a month to go, keep checking back for more details that may spill, right before the curtains lift.
