Having been absent from Season 5, one of the few surviving Starks will be back on our screens in Game Of Thrones Season 6.

The Irish Examiner reports that Isaac Hempstead-Wright will definitely return for the leviathan’s sixth season.

“I can’t say a lot but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran,” Hempstead-Wright teased. “He has some interesting visions.”

He also weighed in on the whole Jon Snow debate, saying “I don’t know (if Kit Harington will come back). He’s said he’s not. I wish he would because I love Kit and because the character’s so cool. Who knows? We start filming series six at the end of this month (July) so we’ll see.”

The news that Bran will return isn’t particularly surprising, but it’s good to hear we’ll be catching up with the young Stark after a season without him. As for that Jon Snow debate, well, we’ll have to wait and see…

Game Of Thrones Season 6 begins in 2016 on Sky Atlantic in the UK. You can pre-order Season 5 on Blu-ray for £29.99 at Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
