We have come across several reports over the past few months that Game of Thrones Season 6 is set to feature comebacks from characters that weren’t seen for quite sometime now. Some of these were either dormant or presumed dead but they will all be returning to Season 6.
Yara Greyjoy (Gemma Whelan) is the latest addition to the confirmed returns for Season 6 and is currently filming the new episodes of Game of Thrones. Whelan herself confirmed this in a recent interview:
Even when I said I’m going to Northern Ireland on Wednesday to you just now, I thought ‘oh god, maybe I shouldn’t say that.’ You really watch your back on everything – ‘don’t say too much’. But at least it’s been leaked that I’m going to be in it, so I can talk freely about that.
Yara Greyjoy joins The Hound, Rickon Stark, Osha, Blackfish, Walder Frey, Edmure Tully, Balon Greyjoy, Hodor, Bran, Three-Eyed Raven and Ned Stark (youth/flashbacks), who are all expected to be back next season.
In other news, Gendry is still rowing and there is no confirmation yet to whether he is coming back for Season 6 or not.
