After a six month hiatus, Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Terri Schwartz (@terri_schwartz) have reopened the Game of Thrones Book Club podcast for business! They’re breaking the dragon-glass in case of emergency, because we are most certainly in emergency mode: George R.R. Martin has officially confirmed that the sixth book in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, The Winds of Winter, won’t arrive before season six of the show.
Josh and Terri unpack what the news means, how season six will be the first time book readers don’t have advance knowledge of the story, whether or not those viewers should consider tuning out of Thrones, and more. Plus, Josh and Terri talk about the season six marketing campaign thus far, focusing heavily on Jon Snow and Bran Stark. They briefly touch on some season six casting news, and forecast where they see the show going in the new year. And as is their wont, they ramble all over the place, meandering through this podcast just as Brienne of Tarth meanders through A Feast For Crows. Hey, it’s been six months; give them a little bit of rope, will ya?
Let us know your take on the return of the Book Club, and let us know what you want to hear in future editions of the podcast.
