Game Of Thrones director Jeremy Podeswa, who directed the Emmy nominated episode Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken from season 5, recently spoke about what makes the much-awaited season 6 super special. Podeswa, who is also directing the first two episodes of the upcoming season, addressed those Jon Snow rumours as well.
Snow was killed in the season 5 finale but actor Kit Harington's leaked images on the sets of season 6 sparked rumours that the character might return in the next season. So, is there really a chance of Jon Snow popping up in the season 6 premiere episode? Well, Podeswa gives a rather cryptic response.
"I've got nothing, watch the show it's going to be great. Jon Snows death was another huge storytelling thing," the director told GoldDerby. "It's the definition of a cliff-hanger: where does the story go from here?"
It remains to be seen what Podeswa means by "huge storytelling thing" and "cliffhanger." Did he just confirm that there's more to Jon Snow's story arc?
Inquisitr previously reported that when author George RR Martin was asked about Jon Snow's fate in the books, he teased, "Oh, you think he's dead, do you? Well. I'm not going to address whether he's dead or not."
Meanwhile, the director also stated that season 6 is extra special as the show has now surpassed the books and hence fans and viewers will have absolutely no idea of what to expect. "Right now in season six, what we're shooting currently isn't based on anything in the book. It's fully based on discussions the writers have had with George Martin. Because the series has now surpassed the books in terms of what's available."
Game Of Thrones season 6 is expected to premiere in April, 2016.
