And according to Entertainment Weekly, it seems like we'll just have to wait almost a year before we get to see more of Jon Snow and Arya Stark in action. The show won't return to HBO until summer 2017.

“Now that winter has arrived on 'Game of Thrones,' executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss felt that the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production a little later than usual, when the weather is changing,” Casey Bloys, of HBO, told the site. “Instead of the show’s traditional spring debut, we’re moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule.”
