HBO is doing everything possible to keep the Game of Thrones season 6 spoiler free

It’s a matter of few hours and Game of Thrones will be on our screens and in our lives, again. Its an established fact by now that the world cannot wait for game of thrones and is doing everything possible meanwhile to get a little inside information from the series. Because, well, we cannot wait!

Michael Lombardo, HBO programming President and David Benioff, the showrunner recently spoke about some of the extreme measures they have taken to keep the fans away from getting any spoilers. They talked to Entertainment weekly and in the Game of Thrones cover story, they said, “Fewer people received scripts this season. Press won’t get advanced screeners. HBO’s affiliates worldwide can expect to get content much closer to airtime.” This was reported by James Hibberd of Entertainment weekly. He further reported, “Even internally on the show, the ‘circle of trust’ was tightened – code words were routinely used to describe certain scenes or characters, even by the showrunners themselves.”

That’s some crazy security to prevent letting the cat out of the bag. But since they are making a show that has the credit of being known as the most pirated show in last three consecutive years, any level of security must seem less to them. Besides, last year four major episodes got leaked and keeping that in mind, these new security measures are not difficult to comprehend.

David Benioff, the showunner, even described the way he looks at this entire security thing. He said, “It’s like protecting your house. You make it as hard as possible for burglars in the hopes they look for some other to burgle, but it’s impossible to ever completely secure your house.

Now as we all know, one character which definitely must have needed a code word would have been Jon snow. Going by the guesses (and prayers) of people all around the world, Jon Snow will definitely be resurrected at some point during the upcoming season, but when, that we don’t know.

Though the showrunners still denie anything related to Jon’s comeback on the show, we still have our hopes high.

Just. Cannot. Wait.

George R. R. Martin talks about House of The Dragon Teaser Trailer

House of The Dragon’s first teaser trailer is finally here! The teaser was released by HBO at the end of the HBO Max European launch event and it features a voiceover by Matt Smith who plays the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen. It broke the internet as soon as it was released, and fans are going crazy over the accuracy and detail shown in the teaser. It was watched by over 10 million viewers in less than three days of its launch! And George R. R. Martin has something to say about the teaser trailer.

Martin wrote on his blog Not a Blog:

Yes, I know, most of you have already seen this. (What can I say? I am busy. Juggling so many balls, so many projects, posting stuff on my Not A Blog is not my highest priority, so things may always be a little bit behind here).

For the handful who have been off the internet the past few days, however… HBO has released the first official teaser/trailer for HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. Here ’tis.

Enjoy.

(And yes, I love it too. Ryan and Miguel and their team are kicking ass and taking names).”

Looking at the current speed of production, we can hope Martin’s earlier prediction about the prequel’s release will come to fruition. What do you think about House of The Dragon? Talk to us in the comments below!

A young Alicent Hightower takes over the Iron Throne in Leicester Square

The filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is progressing really smoothly, besides minor delays everything’s looking good for HBO’s high priority project. HBO recently dropped the first official teaser trailer for House of The Dragon, and fans are going crazy about it. That being said, we know that filming for the prequel show will be starting in Spain the next week, and the cast and crew members are gathering up at the Castle of La Calahorra.

The actors are taking a small break from their busy schedule before the shoot resumes, and it seems Emily Carey, who will be playing a young Alicent Hightower in the show is having fun with a replica of the Iron Throne.

Carey recently posted a picture on her official Twitter account. She seems to be enjoying a quiet day at Leicester Square, and her preferred choice of furniture is the Iron Throne replica. She wrote in the caption, “Found this chair in Leicester Square (wearing green was coincidental).” #HOTD #HouseofTheDragon #AlicentHightower

Do you think the future Queen of Westeros was foreshadowing a scene from House of The Dragon? Wearing green was coincidental? Maybe, maybe not. Only time will tell.
