For “Game of Thrones” fans, April can’t come soon enough. However, to tide us over, if only for a little while, HBO has released a slew of character portraits from the upcoming sixth season of the fantasy drama.
Arriving courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, the photos don’t contain any real spoilers, unless you’ve still not finished with Season 5. If you’re all caught up, they’ll probably remind you of a development or two that you’d forgotten.
The images do provide the first look at Max von Sydow as the Three-Eyed Raven, alongside a now much-grown Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright). We also see Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen), last shown leaping from the walls of Winterfell.
But while Kit Harington’s Jon Snow is nowhere to be found, Melisandre (Carice van Houten) looks as if she’s still at Castle Black, which may further fuel speculation that the Red Woman may yet play a part in his future.
“Game of Thrones” returns Sunday, April 24, on HBO.
