The big question everyone wants answered is of course whether Kit Harington's Jon Snow is still alive, and the character has featured heavily in the marketing materials for the upcoming season. There's plenty to look forward to elsewhere too; Ian McShane and Max Von Sydow have been added to the cast, and there are plenty of intriguing story threads to pick up with including the significant threat of the whitewalkers and Tyrion's alliance with Daenerys. April can't get here soon enough!
Season 6 of Game of Thrones premieres on HBO on April 24, 2016.
