Game of Thrones: Season 4

Season 3 is well behind us and Season 4 is almost upon us. Game of Thrones is based on the ''A Song of Ice and Fire'' books so we can loosely guess what is going to happen in Season 4.

Here's are the fact's we know for definite:
1. Season 4 got the go ahead on 2 April 2013
2. The season will have 10 episodes (as all previous season's have had.)
3. Production will began on the 8th July 2013

From what we saw in Season 3 we can assume that season 4 will mostly be based on the second half of ''A Storm of Swords'', the 3rd book in the series, some material may be added from the fourth and fifth books (which run alongside the end of the third book and each other).

It has also been confirmed that production will return to Dubrovnik in Coatia, and Iceland. It is assumed that filming will also continue in Northern Ireland. The coastal city of Split also in Croatia has also been added. It is not yet known if filming will return to Morocco.

All characters who survived the events of Season 3 are expected to return in Season 4.

Some new faces we can expect too see are:

  •  Oberyn Martell, known as ''The Red Viper of Dorne''
Played by Pedro Pascal. I am very excited for this character. He is one of my favourite's. Can't complain about the choice of actor either!!!!

  • Ellaria Sand
Played by Indira Varma, Ellaria Sand is the lover of Oberyn Martell. She is also the bastard daughter of Lord Harmen Uller.

  • Mace Tyrell

Played by Roger Ashton-Griffiths. Mace Tyrell is Lord of Highgarden, Warden of the South and Lord Paramount of the Reach.

  • Tyhco Nestoris

Played by Mark Gatiss, Tycho Nestoris is a representative of the Iron Bank of Bravoos.

  • Lord Yohn Royce

  • Fat Walda Frey

  • Hizdahr zo Loraq

Played by Joel Fry, Hizdahr zo Loraq is a slave-trader from the city of Meereen on the coast of Slavers Bay.

Other actors have been cast but it is uncertain who they will play at this moment in time.
