It’s still hard to believe that Game of Thrones is over. There were times when it seemed like the next season might never arrive, and now all eight seasons have come and gone. After its premiere back in 2011, the series quickly developed a rabid fanbase and became a television juggernaut. It was, quite simply, one of the biggest series ever made.
But while the show has indeed ended, HBO released Game of Thrones: The Complete Series last month so that fans can re-visit the story in its entirety whenever they wish to.
Game Of Thrones is lobbing out the casting news recently. On the heels of the announcement that Ian McShane has joined the cast for season 6 (in an unnamed role), comes the announcement that legendary actor, Max Von Sydow will play the Three-Eyed Raven next season, replacing Struan Rodger, who made a brief appearance in the season 4 finale, as the seer who cannot help Bran walk again, but “he will fly.”
Last September we found out that Hodor (Kristian Nairn) and Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright), along with Meera Reed (Ellie Kendrick), were taking season five of Game of Thrones off, because their storyline was all caught up with the books. And as we found out, this was very true. Nairn used his time off to do his “Rave of Thrones” tour.
It seemed pretty unlikely that these important characters would be taking off a second consecutive season, but if you were worried whether you would have to go another year without some Hodor on your TV screens or not, fear not, for it has been confirmed that they will be returning for season six…which has already been greenlit and is very likely to be the penultimate season of the show.
Hempstead Wright confirmed his return in an interview recently (which we assume means the return of Hodor and Meera as well), and also talked about what Marvel role he’d love to play. You can see what he had to say below, though be warned, potential spoilers lurk below. Only proceed if caught up with the show or if you don’t mind a spoiler or two here and there.

Another year has come and gone, and a new season of Game of Thrones is on the horizon—season five, to be specific, which will premiere on April 12th.
As always, HBO has released the previous season, season four, on Blu-ray and DVD just in time to help get us through these undeniably difficult final couple of months of waiting for the new season to arrive. Once again we offer our review without any spoilers—in case you’ve not yet started or finished the latest season—and focus mainly on what fans of the show who are caught up want to know, which is what special features are included on the discs. If you’ve never seen the show at all, why on earth are you reading a review of season four instead of watching season one, episode one? Go now!
Back in September, actor Kristian Nairn revealed that his Game Of Thrones character Hodor, the gentle giant who only speaks his own name, won’t appear in Season 5 of the HBO series. Aside from filming the show, the actor is also a DJ who has been on a sold-out world tour called Rave of Thrones.
But what will Nairn do once the tour ends? TV and radio host Jamie Stangroom recently sat down with the actor to discuss his options for work and to, of course, get him to say “Hodor.”
Watch the 5-minute video here below, which includes Nairn auditioning for a commercial for the Pretty Good Fried Chicken hair salon (yes, a fried chicken place that also does hair cuts.
