If you can't handle anymore spoilers you should probably look away now...

Screencrush have said it is rumored that the new season will pick up from Broadbent's archmaester meeting with Sam. Sam is then said to tell Marwyn about everything he's seen beyond the Wall with the White Walkers - so Broadbent might just be the key to unlocking all the secrets of the series.

Although, you might still have an agonising 4 month wait to find out.

Unlike the previous series which have premiered in spring, Games Of Thrones star Liam Cunningham recently let slip that the season is likely to be hitting our screens this July.
