THE next season of Game of Thrones will see the death of some of the programme’s biggest fans.
Following the bloody finale of the fifth series, in which a host of main characters were shockingly dispatched, the show’s producers have announced that several viewers will be gruesomely killed off during season six.
Creator George RR Martin said: “I’m hugely excited about it, because, as everyone knows, Game of Thrones obsessives are some of the most tedious and irritating human beings on the planet.
“To devise and oversee the murder of vast swathes of them will be great fun for me.”
Game of Thrones super-fan Julian Cook said: “It’d be awesome if I die in a really cool way, like getting torn apart by wolves or shagged to death.
“I abhor spoilers, though, so if I am scheduled to die, I don’t want to know about it until I actually see it for myself on the show. But, obviously, at that point I’ll be dead, so I’ll be unable to watch it.
“Anyway, I’m sure we can work something out.”
