Game of Thrones Season 6 premieres on HBO in the USA on the 24th of April 2016. It’s one of the most anticipated television events of the year and I really can’t wait to see what happens next (like many of you reading this). Is Rob Stark dead? Are the White Walkers going to battle in Westeros? Guess we’ll have to find out…
The show has gained so much popularity over the last few years. Did you know that more than 150 babies were named “Khaleesi” in 2012, that “Arya” is the fastest-growing baby name in the United States and there is a Game of Thrones porn parody called “Game of Bones.” ? Well, now you know. Game of Thrones has definitely influenced and will continue influencing pop culture in a big way, there’s no doubt about that.
To date Game of Thrones has received no less than 86 Emmy Award nominations (of which it has won 26). In 2015 the show broke records at the Emmy Awards, winning 12 awards out of 24 nominations (setting a record for winning the most number of Emmy Awards for a series in a single year). Maybe they’ll get a bunch of nominations this year as well.
Yesterday HBO released a new trailer for season 6 featuring an amazing version of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game”. Check it out below, you’ll probably be convinced that the next season is going to blow you away.
I told you that this was going to be amazing, right? Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Feedback is appreciated and welcome here.
