    I'm pretty sure he's ruled out finishing by the end of the year I think the earliest the new book could come out would be pretty close to the start of the new season.

    So this thread is for posting Spoilers from insider news sites?

    Why don't you just say that in the thread title then? Call it Season Six Speculation and Insider News

    Eventually, once production begins, ppl will start posting cast member list, which can be a major spoiler in itself.

    I to would love to see a season dedicated to GOT in the way Spartacus - Gods of War was handled when they were unfortunately pushed into doing that prequel for that show.

    That said I agree that I don't think we will get that as well. We will probably get a handful of flashbacks that will point to and explain major events and the genesis of storylines that took place before the books began.

    Doing this will require bringing back characters that have been killed in the show already. I wonder how they will handle that....depending on what events they flashback to do you per say bring back Sean Bean and attempt to age him down or do you go out and get a younger actor who resembles him and present to us a new and younger Ned Stark.

    Makes sense. They just have way too much story left to tell, even with stepping into the unreleased Book Six already (Stannis at Winterfell).

    They haven't released casting news yet on new major characters, for whatever reason. It does seem like some of the Iron Islands storyline from Book 4 (which runs chronologically with Book 5 anyway) will be incorporated (which, I think, it must).

    One way or the other, they want to see it through to the end. No breaks or pauses. It would be too difficult to re-gather the cast and crew. Or afford them, for that matter.

    “Dead is dead is dead,” he said. “He be dead. Um, yes. Everything I’ve seen, heard and read, Jon Snow is indeed dead.”

    Yea, right. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, that was funny. "Um, yes." (nose growing) "He's dead."

    I've mentioned before, but will keep it to a minimum here, that the producers gained the trust of George RR Martin to make this show when they successfully discussed popular speculation of Jon Snow's parentage. And, for me, if you go by the actual title of the book series?

    I know Kit Harrington might just be in Belfast to film his funeral scene, as Charles Dance did a year ago, but.....nah. Not buying the dead Jon Snow thing.

    I can't wait to see Tyrion and Varys take down the Sons of Harpys. Someone needs to nerf them, they were way OP'd last season. Curious to know what Sansa and Theon are going to do. Oh, and please, less Sand Snakes and more Doran Martell. God, that was cringeworthy. Well except the prison scene.

    Not to mention that they've committed to a prequel series as well! I'm thinking Robert's rebellion would be the easiest as far as familiarity with the audience goes. I just don't see Aegon's conquest as being feasible with the amount of CGI they'd need.

    "Jon Snow" is dead, it will be interesting to see what name he takes when he come back.

    If he was going by Targaryen it would probably lead to a King Jon and a Queen Dany because the Targaryens are an incestuous bunch.

    The season 5 poster featured Tyrion. Maybe the TV producers will merge Jon Snow's storylines into Tyrion's?

    WOW... This is huge news. It's a mystery role so far... No idea who he could be. My guess would be that he will be involved in the citadel. I'm only saying that because I remember how we'll he played that type of role in Pillars of the Earth.
