Don't Expect To See 'Bran' & His Gang In GAME OF THRONES Season 5

We're all losing our heads while we await the return of HBO's epic fantasy series next year, but when Game Of Thrones does air its fifth season, it'll be without the characters of Bran, Hodor, Meera, Summer and co. More past the jump, but beware of book SPOILERS.

Readers of George R.R. Martin's source novels will know that by the end of Game Of Thrones season 4, Bran Stark's storyline had caught up to the point he and his pals were at in the fifth book in the series, "A Dance With Dragons". Now we've heard that Martin has told showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff certain things that will happen in the final 2 books in the event that the show catches up, but it seems that's not the case for Bran, Hodor, Meera and Summer; who when last we saw had finally encountered the Three Eyed Raven of Bran's visions. Kristian Nairn (Hodor) has revealed to Yahoo! that those character won't be a part of season 5.


"We have a season off and we have a year's hiatus, solely because I imagine our storyline is up to the end of the books. So, I get my year off now to do Rave of Thrones and gallivant all over the world."

While this obviously makes sense, it's quite unusual (maybe even unheard of?) for a tv show not to visit a main character's story arc for an entire season. Let us know what you think about this in the usual place, and also, Hodor.
