Game Of Thrones: 10 Facts To Get You Ready For Season 6

If you have been living under a rock for the past few years, you may have missed watching the epic Game of Thrones.  If you, like the most of the rest of the world, have been checking it out, then you simply have to be excited for the next season.

The show is of course based on George R.R. Martin's best-selling book series "A Song of Ice and Fire". While many of us thought we never would be drawn into something like a  medieval fantasy epic, we were wrong.  Game of Thrones appears on HBO, and a new season is coming up soon.  The show focuses on the powerful regional families, and all the people that surround them. You will see kings and queens, criminals and knights, heroes and horrific villains, bastards and noblemen,  not to mention a whole lot of naked women. All of these people are part of a deadly game to control the region of Westeros, and to sit on top of the Iron Throne.

The show has been ridiculously successful, and each season has been as good, or better, than the last. Fans of the show, and there are many, are thrilled the next season is about to begin. Last season ended with Stannis dying, Arya being blinded and Theon and Sansa on the run. What can be expected in the new season? Read on to find out.

Here are 10 things you need to know about the 6th season of Game of Thrones.

10 There Will Be A New Sorceress

9 Is Jon Snow Really Dead?

8 The Show Starts In April


7 More Scenes Will Be Filmed In Dorne (AKA Spain)

6 The Plot Will Not Be Based On The Books

5 The Three-Eyed Raven Is Coming Back


4 Freddie Stroma Will Join The Cast


3 Ian McShane Is Joining The Cast

2 Bran Is Back


Well, as you probably already guessed, if the three-eyed Raven is back, so is Bran. He was one of the biggest story lines right from the very start, but suddenly in season 5 it was like he ceased to exist.  That will change though as the actor that plays Bran, Isaac Hempstead Wright, has confirmed that he is going to be back. "I can't say a lot but I am back this season, and it's going to get particularly interesting with Bran," he told the Irish Examiner. "He has some interesting visions."

1 Arya Is Blind


As you may recall in the last episode of season 5, Arya broke a bunch of rules and defied the Many Faced God. He didn't like that a whole lot and made her blind. Well apparently she will continue to be sightless in season 6, at least for a while.  Actress Maisie Williams commented on how uncomfortable the contacts she had to wear were to make her look blind, and that she had been doing some training so she would do a better job at appearing blind physically. Just when you thought Arya was going to be okay, it appears that things might even get a bit worse for her.
