Tabloids and social media circled in on several spoilers that came along with the agonizing wait about when “Game of Thrones” season 6 will premiere. While avid fans were waiting for an official announcement from HBO, the actors and actresses of the film gave spoilers with regards to their characters for the season. Starting from the revival of Kit Harington’s Jon Snow, who died in season five, to the return of Bran Stark, the wait became more agonizing.

The author of the novels, George R.R. Martin, recently announced that he will not be able to complete the book for season six before it airs this year.
