Is Jon Snow REALLY Dead? “Game of Thrones” Returns Tonight


Image courtesy HBO(LOS ANGELES) — The HBO fantasy hit Game of Thrones returns for its sixth season tonight.

The fate of Jon Snow, the main character stabbed and left for dead by his supposed allies at the end of last season, has been sealed, according to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister.

“I can say that Jon Snow is dead,” he recently told ABC Radio.

But does he come back? Coster-Waldau wouldn’t say, though he did note, “It’s a show that has all these different worlds and I think a lot of that is converging in the new season.”

John Bradley, who plays Snow’s best friend, Samwell, knows Snow’s fate, though he doesn’t think it’s fun to have that kind of knowledge.

“It’s like knowing your best friend’s girlfriend is having an affair in so much as you’re desperate to tell them and you really think you should but you know if you did it’s more trouble than it’s worth,” he quipped. 

The season premiere of Game of Thrones airs at 9 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday night.

On Thursday, HBO announced it had renewed Game of Thrones for a seventh season. It also picked up the comedies Veep and Silicon Valley for another season.
