Following the announcement this morning that the seventh season won’t debut until next summer, HBO has announced that the Game of Thrones Season 6 Blu-ray and DVD release date for November 15, 2016. The series will be released digitally on August 1.
The bonus content for the digital release of Game of Thrones Season 6 will include:
Bran’s Journey – A nine-minute feature delving into the shocking and revelatory journey Bran Stark took in Season 6.
The Dothraki World – Behind-the-Scenes featurette bringing viewers up to speed on the Dothraki culture, not seen since Season 1.
Inside Game of Thrones: Prosthetics – Behind-the-Scenes featurette detailing what goes into the show’s prosthetics creation.
The Game Revealed – Five-part series covering the creation of Season 6’s most epic set pieces and scenes.
Summer is coming. HBO is officially confirming some major changes for Game of Thrones.
Season 7 of the fantasy sensation will not return until summer 2017 – pushing back from the show’s usual strategy of premiering each edition of the series in the spring (typically April).
Also, the network is confirming for the first time that next edition will consist of seven episodes (a pull back from the show’s usual 10 hours). Plus, HBO added that the next season will be shot in Northern Ireland, Spain, and Iceland.
The producers have previously told EW they wanted to cap the hit series at 73 hours, with seven episodes next year, and six in an eighth-and-final season. (“We’ve known for several years now how many hours, roughly, we want it to go, it hasn’t changed,” Benioff said.) HBO has not yet confirmed anything about season 8, however, so that part of their plan is not yet official.
Thrones has managed to ratchet up its production values with each season, and having fewer episodes will likely allow more time for the team to polish every hour of the show. The producers have tapped directors Alan Taylor, Jeremy Podeswa, Mark Mylod, and Matt Shakman for next season.
Well, there it is. Kit has been nominated for his role in this seasons Game of Thrones in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in Drama category. Absolutely thrilled for him!
Edit; Kit has released a short statement via Entertainment Weekly on his nomination
“It is a serious understatement to say that I am somewhat stunned. For my work on Game of Thrones to be recognized in this way is an emotional moment for me. I could not be more humbled.”
