In an interview with Israel’s Channel 2 news, series co-creator and executive producer Jonathan Nolan revealed that the next season of HBO’s hit fantasy drama would see the return of the White Walkers.
In a follow-up interview with The Jerusalem Times, Nolan added that the Season 5 premiere would see a new, larger, “more expansive” map of the Seven Kingdoms than the one used in season 2.
“It was going to be a map of Westeros with a lot more detail, and a more expansive map of Dorne,” Nolan explained.
“So you’ll see a lot of new locations, but it’s also going to have a bigger map of Essos.”
Nolan added that while the new map would be larger than the map seen in season 1, it would still be just a “small piece of the world.”
“It’s not something that’s really there.
It’s not really part of the story,” Nolan said.
“And we’re trying to get it to feel very real and very real.
And to have that feel of it in a place that’s not so obvious.”
Nancy Edelman, who directed the Season 4 finale of the HBO show, revealed that HBO has already begun to “revisit” the new Westeros map, but Nolan said he is not certain if the map will be seen in any episodes.
“I don’t know,” Nolan admitted.
“I know that it will be in at least a couple of episodes.”
In the second season of the hit HBO drama, which began filming in March, the characters were sent to Winterfell, a city where Lord Tywin Lannister, a member of the Night’s Watch, has spent his life.
The show, which follows the adventures of the Tyrell family, is set in Westeros after the Battle of the Blackwater.
The show’s writers have since said that they were “worried” about how the show would fare on the big screen.
However, Nolan said that he and co-creators Edgerton and Stig Asberg are not worried about the quality of the film adaptation.
“We’re not worried.
We’ve got a long history of being optimistic about the movie, but that’s just a matter of confidence,” Nolan told The Times.”
What we know is that it’s a movie that’s gonna be very well received, and that’s a film that will be a success, and the first thing we want to do is see it.”
While the producers have been busy preparing for the new season of Game in a number of ways, Nolan and Asberg have also been working on the second and third seasons of the series.
The new season will premiere on HBO on April 24.
