It looks like Dany’s dragons (or at least Drogon) may come home to roost (is that a thing?) in the new Game of Thrones season five key art that was released today.
As fans of the show know, tides were a-changin’ last time we left our heroes and villains. Dany was forced to chain her beloved dragons away in the catacombs, thanks to their penchant for charring livestock and children, although free-spirit Drogon had yet to return. Tyrion is now on the run for the murder of Joffrey and he and Varys are heading toward Essos, while Arya, now free from The Hound, is bound for Braavos…and that’s just a portion of the plot!
Among the returning members of the ensemble cast are Emmy® and Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Kit Harington, Alfie Allen, Diana Rigg, Natalie Dormer, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Conleth Hill and Gwendoline Christie.
New cast members that will be joining them this season include Jonathan Pryce, Alexander Siddig and Keisha Castle-Hughes.
