GoT fans legitimately think the 'Jon Snow is dead' news is all just a setup

HBO just dropped some big news about Game of Thrones, and it's leaving the show's hardcore fans pretty upset, to say the least. At the network's Television Critics Association's panel this week, HBO exec Michael Lombardo answered two major questions about the beloved series: how long will GoT run and — even more pressing — is Jon Snow really dead?

Lombardo basically broke hearts and crushed dreams everywhere when he confirmed that all that wishful thinking for Snow's return is just that.

We'll have to stay tuned to see who's telling the truth: Lombardo or the Snow death deniers. Either way, it looks like there'll be lots of time for shocking deaths and conspiracy theories. Lombardo also revealed that GoT will likely run through Season 8 — less than the 10 that he originally said he was aiming for, but more than enough for plenty more action and surprises (and according to many, maybe even the revival of Snow).
