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.
Another season is over and it’s been quite epic to say the least. Jon Snow returned from the dead and gave up his post as Lord Commander, there’s been more deaths than some of us have had hot meals, the north has a new King, winter has finally arrived and we now know the identity of Jon’s mother to name only a few things. Stills and screen captures from the last episode have been added to the gallery along with an additional episodic still from 6.09. Dr Faustus has now finished and Kit will soon be filming The Death and Life of John F Donovan so things are going to be a little quiet in the next few weeks/months so I am going to take that opportunity to create a new video section to add to the site. Watch this space..
I’ve finally got around to uploading the screen captures from this weeks episode. You’ll have to forgive the shoddiness of some of them as the battle scenes were particularly hard to get in decent quality. I thought Kit was absolutely brilliant in it and that Emmy nomination from my point of view looks extremely likely. If you haven’t viewed it yet I suggest not looking at the captures until you do because as always, there is spoilers
More stills from Battle of the Bastards are now in the gallery. If you’ve not seen the episode I’d advise not looking at them just yet as there are spoilers. Caps from the episode will be uploaded from it later today
No synopsis has been released for this episode but you will be able to find it in the sidebar to your left when it is. I can’t believe we are almost at the final episode already and it looks certain to be another tense finale. Captures from this weeks epic battle for Winterfell in Battle of the Bastards will be uploaded soon so keep checking back
Scans from this weeks edition of Entertainment Weekly have been added to the gallery thanks to my friend Ashley. This weeks issue previews the upcoming episode Battle of the Bastards which airs June 19 in the US and June 20 in the UK
