Winter is coming — and so is the end of Game of Thrones.
“I think seven seasons and out has never been the conversation; the question is how much beyond the seventh season are we going to do,” Michael Lombardo, President of HBO Programming told reporters Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills.
“[The producers are] feeling like there’s probably two more years after six,” Lombardo added. “I would love for them to change their minds, but that’s what we’re looking at right now. »

Let’s play a little game: Which True Detective character is going to bite it first?
Forgive me if that seems a bit morbid — even for a show that this week introduced us to a murder shack liberally painted with “arterial spray” (thanks, Ani) — but at least one of these people has to die before the rapidly approaching end of the season, right? (After all, not everyone can have Rust Cohle’s Carcosa-surviving unkillability — though the invisible bubble that protected Ray, Ani and Paul from all the bullets last episode certainly seems to come close.)

Though the children of Ned Stark have had a particularly rough go as of late, here’s some news that would make Eddard proud: Bran will definitely be in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, portrayer Isaac Hempstead Wright says.
In an interview with the Irish Examiner, Wright confirmed what most fans had guessed: After sitting out Season 5, his character will be back in play for Season 6.
“I can’t say a lot, but I am back in this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran,” he said, adding that the series begins shooting again at the end of July. »
Not that this is surprising news, but you never know what to expect with Game of Thrones so, just to be clear: Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) will be back for Season 6. The show reached the end of Bran’s story in George R. R. Martin’s book series (so far) at the end of Season 4, and left him way up in the north practicing his warg-ing abilities, and moonlighting as the admin of weirwood.net (that is to say … he’s able to see through the Weirwood trees, which will play a big role coming up regarding Bran’s “visions”). [caption id="attachment_339069" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via HBO[/caption] Beyond that little tidbit, though, nothing else can be said about where the show might take Bran’s story next, since showrunners Dan Weiss and D.B. Benioff are now officially going off course from the books (since the next book hasn’t been published. »

The Starks will be one stronger when “Game of Thrones” returns for Season 6. Isaac Hempstead Wright, who plays the young paraplegic Bran Stark, has confirmed his return to the show after sitting out Season 5, revealing that his character will be up to exactly what he was up to when we last saw him. “I can’t say a lot but I am back this season,” the actor told The Irish Examiner. “It’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions.” Also Read: 45 First Looks of New TV Shows From the 2015-2016 Season Because of the ever-expanding world of. »

At least one fan favorite character is returning to “Game of Thrones.”
Isaac Hempstead-Wright, whose Bran Stark sat last season out, confirmed that he would be returning to the hugely popular HBO series for season 6.
“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,” the actor told the Irish Examiner.
Bran Stark, who is one of the youngest of the children of Ned Stark (Sean Bean) and Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley), has not been seen in the series since the end of season four. Most of the characters thought he was dead, although viewers knew that he was actually holed up away from the main action and is presumably developing his warging abilities (i.e. the power to enter the mind of an animal and control its actions).

We may not have Jon Snow on next season of Game of Thrones (or do we?), but we will see the return of another beloved character. Yep, we're talking about Bran Stark. He's back! Actor Isaac Hempstead Wright told Irish Examiner he is back in the mix after not being seen during season five of the hit HBO drama. "I can't say a lot, but I am back this season, and it's going to get particularly interesting with Bran," Wright said. "He has some interesting visions." Of course, Wright has grown up quite a bit during his hiatus from the show, so here's hoping Summer, his direwolf, recognizes him. Viewers last saw the character along with Kristian Nairn's Hodor in season »
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.”
The reason for the character’s absence last season was because his storyline on the show had already caught up to where George R.R. Martin had left off in his A Song of Ice and Fire series.
Kristian Nairn and Ellie Kendrick, who play Hodor and Meera Reed on Game of Thrones, were also nowhere to be found last season. There is no official word on whether or not they’ll be back, but their return seems very likely.

Below the streets of Cheesebridge live the Boxtrolls, a community of cave-dwelling and cardboard box-wearing creatures, who are believed to pose a threat to the citizens of the town and their children. However, in truth, they really pose no such threat and have even raised an orphaned boy, Eggs (voice of Isaac Hempstead Wright), as one of their own. Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley), a local pest exterminator, hatches a plan to get rid of the Boxtrolls for good as a means of securing his place within the town’s cheese-loving elite. When the Boxtrolls hear of Archibald’s plan it then falls to Eggs to save the day, since he is the only »

The Blu-ray includes audio commentary from directors Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi, as well as a few other extra goodies.
