Before you get your hopes up, no, it’s not the one you’re thinking (although we’re still holding out hope that Jon Snow will return). The character that’s making his return to Game of Thrones when the series returns is none other than the elusive Bran Stark.
Isaac Hempstead-Wright confirmed his return to the show during an interview with the Irish Examiner that his character Bran Stark would be coming back after taking a season off. “I can’t say a lot but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions,” he teased to the site.
And as far as Jon Snow’s return? “I don’t know (if he will come back). He’s said he’s not,” he went on to say. “I wish he would because I love Kit and because the character’s so cool. Who knows? We start filming series six at the end of this month (July) so we’ll see.”
Everyone in the cast has been consistent about Jon Snow’s death being final, but for some reason, we still ain’t buyin’ it.
Let us know what you hope to see happen with Bran’s storyline when Game of Thrones returns to HBO in 2016.
