Valar morghulis… All men must die- but it looks like at least some of the major Thrones characters will survive through to the seventh (and potentially final) season of the HBO show.
THR is reporting that HBO has renegotiated several contracts to include the option for the seventh season of the show, many of which include “huge raises” that will “make the cast members among the highest paid on cable TV.”
Spoilers after the jump where we list which actors have the potential to make it to the final season of the show.
The actors who have renegotiated include Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Natalie Dormer, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams.
While the actors have only signed on for the “option” of appearing in season seven, it doesn’t necessarily mean that all of these character will survive that long; however, it does seem to boost their odds… something which could be distressing to book readers. Depending on how much of a spoiler purist you are, some of the names above could be alarming considering where we left these characters at the conclusion of Feast and Dance.
While the article points out that there are several other actors on the “B-list” who will also be returning, there were no additional names attached. So, while it’s possible (and in some cases likely) that Alfie Allen, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Gwendoline Christie, John Bradley, and many others will also be returning, it’s not 100% clear at this time who may have been included.
