HBO released Thursday the official title and description for the first episode of season 6 of Game of Thrones. The April 24 premiere title is: “The Red Woman.” The description, while vague reaffirms the status of a certain character: “Jon Snow is dead. Daenerys meets a strong man. Cersei sees her daughter again.”
The network also shared a brand new description of season 6: “Following the shocking developments at the conclusion of season five, including Jon Snow’s bloody fate at the hands of Castle Black mutineers, Daenerys’ near-demise at the fighting pits of Meereen, and Cersei’s public humiliation in the streets of King’s Landing, survivors from all parts of Westeros and Essos regroup to press forward, inexorably, towards their uncertain individual fates. Familiar faces will forge new alliances to bolster their strategic chances at survival, while new characters will emerge to challenge the balance of power in the east, west, north and south.”
Newcomers joining the Game of Thrones cast include Freddie Stroma as Dickon Tarly, the brother of John Bradley’s Samwell; Richard E. Grant in a mystery role; Pilou Asbæk as Euron Greyjoy; and Ian McShane in an undisclosed role.
